But it's still a good topic! Go to www.jamieoliver.com and sign the Food Revolution petition.
I know this is WAY off topic of writing, but ever since I got my own kitchen and have been preparing a lot of food on my own, I really try to watch what I've been eating. Not just for me, but for my family.
I have been addicted to this show since it started! And to really show how it's worked on me and my family. I spend a bit more time looking through the produce at the grocery store when I go instead of the candy and cookie aisle. :) The produce is the first thing I look at in my ads I get in the mail as well. Even though it may make my groceries a bit more on the edge of my budget sheet, I'm slowly getting into the food revolution. I've had my ups and downs in it, but that's also because I love to bake and I love to bake things with chocolate in it. ;)
But go to Jamie Oliver's website and sign the petition! I have. He wants to get 1 million signatures for this to take to OUR United States Congress. A little over 570,000 people have signed it. So, obviously for this to really help us, our children, and our future generations, we all need to start little by little. Start your own food revolution by buying more fresh produce, growing your own gardens (that are pretty to look at and also some edible stuff) and start cooking more at home. I've noticed a difference with homemade meals vs. the fast food I still eat. Plus--cooking is fun whether you live on your own or you make it a family ordeal.
