So today I’ve reached a milestone. It’s the 10th anniversary of my 30th birthday.
Ba dum bum
Seriously though this is a great day for me and I’m excited about hittin’ the big 4-0!
In lieu of presents this year what I’d really like today from all of you is a favour. If you don’t know already, there’s a new food movement starting up here Stateside by British chef Jamie Oliver, which is aimed to help curb the kids’ obesity epidemic that has taken over. For those of you that know Jamie you know he tackled this problem back in England and now has decided to give it a go here. He has a new show on the box which starts tomorrow night on ABC called Food Revolution. It’s not about fast food or drinking too many sodas, it’s about pushing for better food in schools as well as teaching kids about where food actually comes from. If you’ve followed me here on my site you’ll know that I showcase cooking real proper food and not food that comes from a box. I’ve always tried to show that cooking healthy food is easy, tasty and really all you need is a little organization and interest to make this magic happen in the kitchen. In this magic is where my passion lies.
Jamie won the TED Prize recently and talks about childhood obesity and the detrimental effect it’s having on not only the kids but their families, too. I’m a big supporter of his cause so what I’d love from you guys today, in honor of my parents bestowing me upon you 4 decades ago, is a bit of your help to make Jamie’s wish come true any way you can. Start by signing the petition just to show your interest to get some momentum going on this issue, by watching the show on Friday and most importantly, by helping to spread the word. Want to know more? Watch Jamie and producer Ryan Seacrest on Larry King tonight. Need I say more? You all know how important this is for our kids, for our food, for our future.
So what do you say?
Don’t forget to let me know!
