Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

I love Jamie Oliver and what he is doing. He has a reality show on ABC about how he is making changes to the unhealthest city in America. What these people eat makes me sick although, I'm just as bad. It makes me more aware of the condition of my body and that I need to do something about it now.
Every now and again I'll mention that I packed my lunch every day in my senior year of high school. It's really not that hard to pack a lunch and it was even easier that my cafeteria had a microwave for student use. But the food that the school serves is disgusting! I'm sorry but, no matter how much I like them, tacos where never meant to be in triangle form. I'd always pack fruit, vegetables, whole gains, water, and a baked good. I meant a lot to me seeing that the people that I ate with actually envied what I packed.
Yes, I packed it and not my mom. I think it's important for children to help choose what they eat so that the lunch box is empty when it comes home.
I want to start cooking from scratch more. That stir fry was just step one. Baby steps they always say. Heck, this is one of the reasons why I'm determined to have a sucessful garden this year. So, I'm going to keep watching Jamie (You can watch his show food revolution on ABC on Fridays at 6).
