It’s Monday and there is a lot to conquer for work this week… But I just had to share my little experience from yesterday!
I met Jamie Oliver! Okay, it was online, and the conversation was very much directed, but still!
As part of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution 4 luckly people from around the globe were selected to join Jamie for a hangout on Google+ for half an hour to chat about the Food Revolution. It was scheduled for Sunday at 10am, but was only confirmed the night before – in fact as I was rushing out the door to attend a Food Revolution dinner party! I was a super happy chicky!
I’m not a fan of very many famous people. I’m just not into it – the gossip, the clothes, the intrusive photos. (I had no idea who the Kardashians were until one of them got divorced and it was on the news.) But, I am a big fan of Jamie! I know this might sound weird as I’m a vegetarian, and he cooks with meat. But aside from the recipes and his awesome cooking style, this guy is a trooper for an awesome cause.
If you can’t really relate to what I just wrote, you must watch this TED speech by Jamie.
Here is the link to see the hangout in case you missed it. It’s so hard to look at myself on screen!! You know when you hear your voice differently when it’s played back? Well, add that and looking at yourself!.. So weird and foreign! I was cringing watching myself the whole time. Arg!
Anyways, I do hope in the near future to post my views on whole foods, the foods we eat as a society, and how to move forward. I do hope with all my heart that what we see happening around the world isn’t a fad, but a movement where generations to come will be wide-eyed and wonder why, when they hear about the kinds of diet and diet related diseases/deaths our world is experiencing.
Until then, check out the Food Revolution movement and make everyday a day to celebrate real food!
p.s. After all that I know I didn’t really talk about my experience, but I must get back to work!
