    This is pretty neat, worth the view. It'll fire you up to sit down as a family for every meal you can.

        Jamie does do good work. There was a TV series in the UK called School Dinners:


        http://www.jamieoliver.com/school-dinners


        He is trying to change the food being served at schools throughout the country. It looks like he's now doing the same sort of thing in America.


        I think he's is doing a fantastic job.


        It's just a pity that he isn't more paleo

        The "Seven Deadly Sins"

        Grains (wheat/rice/oats etc) . . . . . Dairy (milk/yogurt/butter/cheese etc) . . . . . Nightshades (peppers/tomato/eggplant etc)
        Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
        Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

            Wow....this was amazing. I love to listen to passionate speakers. I remember Randy Pausch and "The Last Lecture" at Carnegie-Mellon. Really inspiring.

            As was this JO gig. Thank you for sharing.

                This talk is inspiring. The part in there where they were asking kids to identify the vegetables was shocking.


                Another great talk on food politics is by Michael Pollan.

                  Was inspired to do a rather lengthy write-up about this: http://bit.ly/9ZpOxf


                  Fantastic talk - look forward to watching the Michael Pollan one tonight.

                      Here's another great one from a school lunch administrator that is in the trenches. She changed the entire Berkeley lunch program from packaged crap ("The only tool my cooks had was a box cutter!")to salad bars and real, cooked food.


                      Passionate and informed!

                          The link OnTheBayou posted was great as well. Actually another viable viewpoint from someone at the front lines so to speak.


                          When she puts the numbers in perspective at the end it is rather shocking.

                            Baby steps, Tarlach.


                            We'll get to him eventually.
