Jamie Oliver Inspiring Change in America

This video helped me appreciate something I took for granted when I was younger. We shopped for our own food and cooked it. I was encouraged to try new foods and I learned how to prepare them. Not all of it is food I’d eat today, but thankfully it didn’t come in a bucket or a flat square box. Processed foods and takeout meals were the exception, not the norm (I distinctly remember asking for a TV dinner once for my birthday). I’m glad I see the value in being familiar with my food and I’m glad I can share this with my daughter. My favorite food as a kid was spinach. What fun to explore and find out what Corinne’s favorites will be! Right now she’s hooked on tangerines and mangoes, and that makes me proud.

  1. I’m involved with an organization called People’s Grocery:

    Their mission is to bring healthy, affordable, and local food to the residents of West Oakland in a way that builds a sustainable, local food system. They’re awesome, and I think you’ll dig them.
