We are just over-the-moon with excitement that Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution is coming back to our TV’s next Tuesday, April 12th. Did you guys watch Season 1?
Jamie Oliver is a chef and food activist from England who has come to the American people’s aid in starting a revolution by asking “can we do better?” with our food system. Most notably, he takes on cafeteria food. In Season 1 we watched him go to the unhealthiest town in America- Huntington, West Virginia and make some big changes. Does anyone remember the time, he cooked a full week’s worth of food for one family and laid it out on their kitchen table to showcase the fat, grease and pounds of fried foods?
The great thing about a celebrity chef publicly outing the American food system, is that it gets people’s attention.
Our hope is that people stop and think, “What is REALLY IN MY FOOD?”. If you make a decision to eat healthier and to be an alert consumer than you can start changing one household at a time. It starts at home. We think Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution team would agree.
So we ask, have you started a food revolution in your home?
Have you cut our certain foods or products? Have you made a discovery about a certain bad ingredient? Given up fast food restaurants? Learning to cook?
We want to hear from all of you! Share your own personal Food Revolutions with us!
We can! Amazing how the same company can make the same product in two different countries but one country, in this case the United Kingdom, requires stricter food standards so the product is much healthier than the product in the country without the strict food rules, in this case the United States of America.
Notice the differences in the food coloring. The American version allows for Yellow 6, Red 40 and Blue 1 but those controversial colors are banned in the United Kingdom so they use natural dyes. Yellow 6, Red 40 and Blue 1 are apart of a group of dyes that are known to cause ADHD, ADD and behavioral problems, check out your labels, you’ll be surprised how many products have those colors.
