Food for Thought

Again, sorry for the lack of blogging today. Here are two semi-related food stories for today though:

1. Mark Bittman’s post on the recent articles debating whether so-called Big Food can turn around and start helping with “overnutrition” problems. In the spirit of full disclosure, I am pouring a Diet Coke down my throat as we speak.

2. Jamie Oliver‘s Food Revolution show ends tonight. If you haven’t been watching this show, you should. Jamie’s trying to do something really amazing and change the way kids eat food in schools and how families eat food together. Along the way, he is helping people become not only healthier, but also happier. I really love his space in West Virginia, where the show takes place. He’s opened Jamie’s Kitchen were people can come learn about eating and cooking. What I like best about it is that it is presented as more than just a classroom or a kitchen. There are big sofas and places to hang out as well. I think it’s perfect for what Jamie’s trying to say: food isn’t just about eating or even just about cooking. It can also bring people together and create better, healthier communities. Sign his petition here.
