If we're not willing to settle for junk living, we certainly shouldn't settle for junk food. -Sally Edwards

No classes today due to academic advisement = sleeping in, feeling strange that I'm not at work right now, eating lots of banana pancakes and watching this TED talk by Jamie Oliver. If you have 20 minutes, check it out. If you don't, at least visit the link and check out the petition on the right sidebar. I don't see why anyone wouldn't support Jamie's work/wish, to eliminate obesity through education and information.

Find more information about Jamie's Food Revolution at his website, and check out his show Fridays at 8 on ABC (or watch them online). At the very least, you have to admit the guy's got style.

In Defense of Food: An Eater's ManifestoMichael Pollan is another man dedicated to the cause of eating real food. You may have heard about his book, In Defense of Food, which basically reminds us to eat food, not processed items parading as food.

All this writing is making me hungry...I think I'll make an easy favorite: spaghetti aglio e olio (spaghetti with garlic and olive oil). Buon appetito!


  1. REAL FOOD is one of the reasons I love Europe. Food here is *just* food, not something that used to be food + preservatives + chemicals + artificial flavors and sweeteners.

  2. Agreed. Food is probably one of the things I miss most about Europe.
