Pb & J from HELL

Seriously guys, peanut butter shouldn’t have anything other than peanuts in them.

You guys should check out Jamie Oliver’s Teach every child about food Ted talk. It’s a passionate and smart talk on how backwards our food systems have become. Did you know that our children’s life spans are predicted to be 10 years less than our own because of food related illness? Interesting stuff!

Yeah, I watched some of Food, Inc. and it scared the shit outta me. I might have to start raising chickens and plant a vegetable garden.

I love Jamie Oliver. He's smart and passionate. Have you seen Food Revolution? It made me sad that they were giving kids strawberry milk at school because it supposedly fulfills the fruit requirement of the day....really? Strawberry milk? Ugh.

You live in North America, right? I was amazed last time I was there how much "high fructose corn syrup" was in everything. Luckily we don't have that here yet.

Jamie Oliver gets a lot of stick over here, but has done a HUGE amount for food awareness.

I KNOW!!! It's disgusting. I was just looking for soup for a recipe and couldn't find any that didn't have sugar, MSG and other crap added to it. I didn't buy anything. And I love Jamie Oliver!

high fructose corn syrup Seems to be in everything these days. Corn production is subsidized by the US government so it's super cheap... so these companies have been trying to figure out how to make everything out of corn.

And yeah, Jamie Oliver is a cool dude
