Ask Mom! It's about FOOD! Ask Kids... It's about SWEET!

Home, family, food, health. They go together...right? So how did big business get in between each of those essential elements of sustainable community? Obesity is tearing our country apart ... but there's a solution!

I've been encouraging my readers to "get a buzz cut for the Gulf" and support the hair-based grassroots oil spill solutions. But today, I'm going to shift attention to something that is killing more of us than this massive oil spill.

It's our food.

It's taking a Brit to show Americans that we are killing ourselves with our own hands. With our food.

I hope you will watch this TED video of Jamie Oliver's campaign to teach our children... and our parents about how food is killing us with obesity. This is a quiet tragedy that has even more massive implications than the current tragedy on our shores.

Practical Solutions...

  1. ONE: Teach every child you know how to recognize raw, fresh vegetables ... many don't even recognize a tomato!

  2. TWO: Learn to cook TEN healthy recipes ... and make sure every teen can cook TEN HEALTHY dishes before they leave home.

  3. THREE: Raise your voice in your schools. Help them raise the funds to convert from heavily sugar and fat laden foods to fresh foods from your local farmers. It's amazingly cheap... and even more amazingly cost effective at the hospital!

Learn more about Jamie Oliver's FOOD campaign to improve America's food culture ... and our health. And then we can lead the world with something real, tasty, healthy and loving. Health.
