Have any of you watched Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution? Apparently it airs on Friday nights on ABC, but I just watched the first two episodes on Hulu. It's somewhat sensationalistic, being a TV reality show, but based on the data regarding obesity and diabetes related deaths in the United States, and the food that is typically being eaten on this show, it should be sensationalistic. There is not a green or fresh vegetable eaten in the first episode, and in the second only grudgingly, and this is amongst adults and children. Its really appalling, but not all that surprising. I watched it with my mother, and about half-way through I turned to her and thanked her for always having been a good cook, vegetable gardener, and natural foods co-op shopper.
