Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
Recently I have heard a lot of buzz about a new show on ABC called Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. I admit that I do not own a TV, but have been downloading clips and episodes of the hit show and am really excited about it.
While Jamie doesn't advocate a 'paleo' lifestyle exactly, he really tries to convince people to ditch the processed items and eat clean, fresh foods. I love that this show is getting America to talk about this subject. With awareness comes change.
I used to be a fast food junkie. I would lie to myself and say things like "well this milkshake has a lot of calcium in it" and "the chicken nuggets are a good source of protein". But deep down I knew that I was doing a disservice to my body. If you feel like you need a nap right after eating, that's a pretty good indication your food is doing more harm than good.
Now that I have discovered the amazing benefits of real foods I can admit that my justifications were complete BS. Not only do you feel SO much better when eating natural foods, but you look better too!
I will be downloading more episodes of Jamie's show. Let me know what you think of it so far, and if you have any ideas for ways I can incorporate his lessons into Evolution Catering!
