love (good) food. love life.

i love to eat it.
i love to cook it.
i love to grow it.
i love to buy it.
i love to look at it, feel it, share it, smell it, touch it, taste it.

get the picture? i love food. good food, fresh food. food that is healthy & tasty & makes my life feel the better for eating it.

my heart breaks when i know people in this world can't afford food. but in some ways, it breaks even more when i know people CAN afford food, but still buy highly processed and bad-for-you-in-every-way food. there are some kids that don't know what a carrot looks like (no, really.). there are some families that will eat fried food (hot chips/pizza/chicken nuggets) every day of the week. the reality is this is making us unhealthy. very quickly.

so when i listened to this lecture by jamie oliver, there were tears in my eyes. he won a TED award, and made a wish :

"My wish is for you to help a strong sustainable movement to educate every child about food, to inspire families to cook again, and to empower people everywhere to fight obesity. " 
jamie oliver, TED wish

i say amen, brother. i'm with you all the way...

You are so right! We should be the healthiest people on this planet, and we choose to poison ourselves and especially our young.
