I believe that every child in America has the right to fresh, nutritious school meals, and that every family deserves real, honest, wholesome food.
Too many people are being affected by what they eat. It’s time for a national revolution. America needs to stand up for better food!
You live in an amazing country full of inspirational people and you have the power to change things.
With your help, we can get better food into homes, schools and communities all over America and give your kids a better future.
Sign the petition to save America’s cooking skills and improve school food. It could be the most important thing you ever do for your family. America’s health needs you now!
You can sign Jamie’s petition here.
Please take a moment to do so, it’s important.

Jamie was on Oprah promoting his food revolution last Friday. In case you missed it, you can see the episode here.
Personally, I’d like to say that I am proud of Jamie and everything he’s ever done with food but this is going the extra mile. I’ve been a fan of his since 2003 and even though I haven’t been able to see all his shows or eat at his restaurants yet, I know a good thing when I see one. And Jamie, is definitely a good thing.
It’s Friday! You know what that means! Jamie’s Food Revolution and, consequently, a Jamie food post!
This is Evolution Carrot Salad (Jamie’s Food Rev, pg. 116)
This salad is really fresh and light. It’s so easy to make, about 10 minutes altogether. My family couldn’t get enough of it! Enjoy!
If you haven’t yet watched or heard Jamie speak about his TED wish, here’s your chance. His goal is to teach every child about food. It goes hand in hand with the work he’s done in England with the educational system on school lunches as well as his food revolution that he’s starting here in the US. All the more power to you, Jamie! I wish him every success.
It’s Sunday, March 21st! Jamie’s new show, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC airs next Friday, the 26th. But, today we get a one hour sneak preview!! So head on over to ABC and get in on the revolution!
I can’t believe how the people of Huntington are treating Jamie. They have this amazing person trying to help them, willing to spend time with them, wanting to cook for them, and they don’t even care. Somewhere in the middle of the epi, Jamie is talking to this fat kid about food and the kid says he’s interested in learning some recipes. Jamie says that he would love to teach him one on one and maybe he’d even hire him to come work with him in England. WTF??? That would be like I died and gone to heaven if I ever had that kind of opportunity. Maybe I should become the size of a belluga whale and Jamie will invite me…
Chicken Fajitas! (page 38, Food Revolution by Jamie Oliver)
This recipe goes really fast so be sure to have everything ready to go!
Side note: Don’t forget to season everything. Salt and pepper in the chicken mixture, s&p in the salsa, and s&p in the guac. Just don’t forget or it’ll be strangely bland. :)
I got Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution as a holiday gift in 2009. Needless to say, this one joined my growing collection of his books already inspiring me to cook delicious food in creative ways. In Food Revolution, Jamie makes it a point to get a simple message across; It’s time to bring eating back to the kitchen. Not restaurant kitchens, OURS! With growing numbers of people suffering from poor health and nasty obesity dilhemmas, it’s no wonder he has become so passionate about this cause that he’s devoted entire branches of his business to battling this epidemic.
The beginning pages of Food Revolution hold a contract that states that whatever recipes I make, I have to pass on to at least three people. I decided to take it one step further by passing them on to whoever reads this blog.
The majority of my cooking attempts will be based on his recipes. I will post his methods here but I will also tell you what I did differently and if it worked. To me, cooking is a creative process so I want to have a say in how it turns out. Following recipes is chemistry, cooking is art. :)
So now, I say, it’s time we stand up to obesity and health problems. It’s time we get back in the kitchen and COOK!
