TED Talk by Jamie Oliver

A friend sent me a link to a really interesting TED talk about food.  Jamie Oliver has come to the United States to educate us about good nutrition.  I am aware that a large percentage of Americans are overweight.  I am also aware that most of us have limited knowledge about healthy eating, or have very distorted ideas about the subject.  Yet, I still found several points in his lecture surprising.  He shares enlightening interviews/encounters he has with Americans about food.  If you have an extra 20 minutes, I would recommend watching this talk.  (I recently learned that Mr. Oliver has a tv show that premiers March 26 on ABC.)

I have no exciting personal food news to share. We had leftover pasta for supper last night.  I am, however, very excited about tonight's French inspired supper.  Check back for tomorrow's post.
