Food Revolution

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution debuted it’s Season 2 (LA) last night on ABC and I forgot how much I enjoyed this eye opening show.  This show is much more than Jamie trying his best to start a movement and fix our school systems meal plans, it is also eye opening on how America lives. Last night he did one of his grand experiments meant to shock, this time showing us how ground beef is made and treated. Did you know that “misc meat parts” are treated with 70% Ammonia to “clean” the meat which is then turned into ground beef?! I tried to find the video but since the show is so new I couldn’t find the video online yet. How does this show impact me? He truly makes me think twice about what I eat, it makes me think about what is really in my fast food meal and it makes me want to try harder.  Here is a video “Food for Thought” from last season……the famous chicken nugget experiment. I will say I have not eaten nuggets since (not even once)…..

So what am I offering we do? I am pledging NOT to eat a fast food meal for 1 MONTH from today! Now to May 13….NO fast food. This means all chain fast food meals especially nuggets, burgers and gasp McDonalds Fries! So Who is with me? I am betting that after 1 month it will be easy to not go back……it all starts with baby steps!! Leave me a comment if you would like to take the “I will not eat creepy fast food meat” pledge with me!

    Can't start today…I forgot to pack a lunch :S…but I am with ya on cutting out fast food. I really try not to eat it, but here lately it has been near impossible. That's what happens when you get tired and busy.
