Do you pay attention to what you eat? Do you know the origin of those overly processed foods?

Jamie Oliver, the acclaimed British chef with a penchant for fresh and flavorful food, has launched a new television program called Jamie's Food Revolution. Jamie believes that the more we know about our food, the wiser choices we'll make, resulting in an improvement in our mood and behavior. He says that we will feel better, think faster and live longer. Jamie is currently conducting a campaign to make sure that every child in America receives fresh and healthy food choices. School lunches are his primary target of reform. He has stated that these lunches are highly processed concoctions of additives, preservatives and fats. He also plans to teach children and adults to prepare fresh, healthy food and reform the cooking habits of overweight adults.

Will he be able to accomplish these laudable goals? Just watch this unique and educational program that plans to change the way you think about food. With a little help, we can make wiser food choices, prepare healthier food that will make a dramatic difference in how we look and feel.

If you feel inspired by Jamie's campaign, he has created an online petition, promoting healthy food for children, that he will present to the White House. You can find the petition here:
