Food Wars

I have been determined to keep my blog positive, and so as difficult as it may be some days, I will continue in that vein. I watched Jamie Oliver on TV last night. What a courageous person, taking on the one issue people think they control, "their diet". Good luck Jamie, I commend you! With compassion and love, the war against obesity and junk food will need an army of supporters. This is a civil rights and poverty issue. The poor have long had to sustain on cheap, over-processed foods. The indigenous people in this country were very strong and healthy before government subsidized foods. Now diabetes and obesity are the norm in those cultures. Well thank you Uncle Sam, because you are feeding our public school children the same crappy cheap food that will ultimately kill them. Parents, make your child food to take to school, don't let them eat that garbage that they are given. We can win this fight also, one person at at time, one conscious decision to care. What does this all have to do with the picture I posted. Nothing, I just like this picture. And by the way remember to say thank you to a vegetable today!

  1. Go Jamie! There's a free and very nutritious way to solve this problem. Chickweed, purslane, dandelion are just some of the foods freely available in nature. Indigenous people knew these plants and in many parts of the world it's still common practice to forage in nature. Check out Steve Brill http://www.wildmanstevebrill.com/
