Jaime Oliver's Food Revolution

Who watched Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution tonight?

Simultaneously horrifying and inspiring, I am hooked. I've been a fan of Jamie ever since his Naked Chef days. I missed season one, but from what I saw tonight, he's courageously facing an enormous problem and it would be so easy to get discouraged. He needs more people to join the food revolution! How can we mobilize? At one point during the show, Jamie tried to reform a local fast food restauranteur. Unwilling to adjust his ways, it made me think—why can't someone start a nutritious, responsible, affordable fast food chain that will make eating healthy easy?

In honor of the show, I had a big garden salad for dinner. Colorful and yummy!
