So I know that I don't have a huge following, but I thought that I would blog about Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution. I was totally amazed and disgusted by how we eat and feed our kids here in the US. BAck when I was in grad school, I had to write a grant. My group wrote a grant to bring inner city kids to a farm in Maine to show them where food comes from and how to eat healthy. I was interested back then and that project got me even more interested in healthy eating. Slowly, I have been learning about different ways of healthy eating. Most recently, I have started to totally decrease the amount of meat in my diet. I would love to become a vegan, but I don't know if I could. I am just happy with the fact that I very rarely eat red meat or even meat at all. I still have eggs and dairy and sometimes eat salmon, but this is much more healthy than I have eaten in the past. The biggest thing that I need to work on is eating less starchy carbs. What I would love to do is go on a vegan/gluten free diet. This is a difficult task for me as I am a self proclaimed crab addict. I need to eat more fruits and veggies and less bread and fats. I no longer drink coffee. I drink tea and not that much. I am loving my no coffee life and maybe if I can get to discontinuing bread from my life I'll feel the same way about bread as I do coffee. Maybe I just need to do what I did with coffee, give up bread. I may need to replace it with something else like I replaced coffee with tea. That being said, I need to ensure that my kids eat healthy and that I teach them good habits.
My goal is to learn how to have healthy eating habits and plan healthy meals for me and my family. I need to incorporate this into my lifestyle as well as the other healthy habits that I want to incorporate. More on that in another blog.
