before i fell smitten with michael pollan there was jamie oliver. actually, there still is jamie oliver. i love this man madly for his passion about food, about children, about education, about reform. we could all take a lesson from his message. i hung on every minute of his school dinners campaign in britian. now there is jamie’s food revolution in the usa coming to abc in march.
sometimes i think better food for our children is way too small a drop in the giant ocean of our nation’s woes. sometimes i think with all the budgetary concerns of our local schools, asking for better food might just be too much. but in the end it’s all tied together. personally, we here as a family have totally transformed the way we eat in the last two years, but that’s not enough. i’m thinking more and more about proper holistic nutrition. i’m thinking more about whole food education. i’m thinking more about children. i feel my heart embracing a new direction.
