My Monday, as busy as it was, left me satisfied: I did a couple of good things.
I reduced the amount of my scrapbooking stuff to a small shoe box. I am glad it will be put to a good use and not clutter my closet anymore.
Another good thing I did, a very important one, I participated in Jamie Oliver's action of fighting child's obesity.
I have a very mixed fillings on the subject.
First, I am glad someone's doing it: raises our attention and awareness to such a devastating issue.
Second, I am sad that this someone, Jamie Oliver, is many thousand miles away, in Great Britain, and cares about our children more than we do.
The reality is frightening: "today's children will be the first generation ever to live shorter lives than their parents".
I listened to Jamie's impressive speech, and read even more impressive comments: If you have not fed your
children a 100% organic, vegan (or non-factory
farmed meat) diet since before their conception...
Have you apologized to them for the way you have
been shortening their lives and hampering their
overall health? (Attilio Guadagno).
It was my turn to take an action: I signed a petition.
Obesity is preventable! So are other diet related diseases, that kills millions around the globe with US making top of the list.
It's all about what's on the spoon...
I pledge to my kids to teach them in the kitchen and through this blog to cook and eat healthy.
I love my kids, I love my family and friends, and I want my food to be a fuel on the road to a healthy and happy life.
There is no room in my kitchen for GMO, hormones, pesticides, processed food, or any food with suspicious ingredients.
Food revolution starts in my kitchen, and thank you, Jamie Oliver, for reminding me. I do care.
Until next time,
