Misc.

Watching Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution right now. First, have you noticed that Jamie Oliver kind of has a mullet? Lol!  But, in reality, I'm just so sad. **warning, politics talk/soap box time ahead** I can't stand that our government has ridiculous "dietary requirements" in place in our schools--and it's not the best things for them. I'm not sure who thought that we need 2 "breads or grains" in each meal. And really? A bread and a grain aren't on the same level (most of the time). The children in one class didn't even know their basic veggies. And pizza for breakfast?!? Sounds good to me, but I know it's not healthy--especially not for children. It breaks my heart that our children are not being set up for success with eating. And I know that most of the people who read this blog are dealing with the reprecussions of this country's lack of healthy eating habits. But is has to stop with us, right?

Anna and I don't have children yet, but it's so important to us to raise our kids with a healthy view of foods--eating well and natural. And there are lots of you out there that are doing just that. How great! Just as a highlight, Nathalie is setting a great example for her daughter! If you haven't seen her site, I'd encourage you to check it out. She's going through her second month of her journey, and it's the time where the going is tough for her. So read her amazing posts and send her some encouragement.

Yesterday, I said that I'd be running 8 miles. Well, it wasn't quite that. Please don't be disappointed! I tried out a new tracking system for my workouts (since I sold my G1 and got the amazing HD2). And it pretty much sucked. I thought it vastly underestimated my track, so after my workout, I had to drive the route in my car to check the distance. I was worried about it, since the tracker said that my route was about 5 miles. Once I drove it, though, it turns out that it wasn't so bad! It was almost exacly 8 miles. Well, it was like 7.97 miles, so I'm taking it as 8! In about an hour and a half. Not too bad. That's almost 13 km!! I was pretty excited about it. And I ran most of the way, too.

The Food Revolution was so great last night! GO JAIMIE!!! I noticed how at times we Americans just eat the food even if its not really that tastie. Food for food sake.

As a teacher I find that my students eat garbage all day long. The meals here at school consist of cheese and bread, cheese and bread. Since when is a pretzel and cheese a meal?

Just this last week my principal stood at the garbage bins in order to save the fruit from the trash bins. It is really diappointing.

We went to out last night and I have this on the DVR. I watched the preview on Sunday and felt so sad too. I mean really, if you have rice in a meal, do you need bread too? It is that kind of thinking that has created such an epidemic.
Hope you have a good weekend!

Amen Brother! I don't have kids either, but I've found that as I've gone through this journey, I've really gotten passionate about changing nutrition for the next generation, and that starts with us, whether we're parents yet or not.

I think Jamie Oliver's show is fantastic. It is sad, but I'm afraid it's really representative of many communities across the nation. I really appreciate his efforts, and yes - I've noticed the semi-mullett, too!
