I had to share this amazing video. I have watched Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution when it started, and have been really blown away since then. His Ted video is amazing. Please take the 20 minutes to watch this video.

I subscribe to a lot of different people who have different philosophies, some of them are raw food people. My opinion? I don’t think I have one. I have tried to be raw, but it isn’t as easy for me, maybe I wasn’t ready, or maybe I just love a steak every now and then. One of the raw food people I get blog updates on is Kevin and AnnMarie at http://renegadehealth.com. I started out watching their youtube channel, and I highly recommend them. I do learn a lot from them. They just suggested a movie called Hungry for Change you can watch the trailer here WOW WOW and more WOW! Hungry for Change is really what our world needs. There are many different speakers in this film even Jamie Oliver who’s Food Revolution has really sparked an interest in my heart to make good changes in cooking food at home. I do have a love/hate relationship with food though. I learned at a very young age to make it comfort rather than nutrition and necessity. I remember being a kid and eating my heart out when no one was around, it made me feel better… it still does sometimes. In fact I was pretty sure my cat was dying Sunday and Hubby took me out for fried food. My tummy paid that price later, but the food was comforting going in. (And my cat didn’t die, Praise God! But she doesn’t have years and years left that is for sure) I “know” a lot but there is still part of me that is broken, a recent blogger “friend” posted a book review on The Obesity Epidemic and I think that is something that I really need to get on reading. Another yahoo group I belong to just posted about weight loss and many were chiming in that most people who have weight issues also have emotional issues that they “comfort” with food, often time sexual, physical and mental abuse occurred to them and it’s safer to be in a “fat suit” than to be real and healthy and attractive. I can relate. Although I don’t want to be here anymore. I want out of this fat suit! I want food to be nutrition for me, not comfort. I think MANY people struggle with this, or it wouldn’t be an epidemic. I also think that many people don’t know how to start, and don’t know the truth about real food or the truth about fake food.

I urge you to take a look at your own life, are there things in what you are eating that you can’t pronounce? Do you live on sugar or diet sodas? Is there something that you can do to change your health? Are you always tired? Do you have trouble sleeping? Are you on so many medications your head spins? God didn’t intend for us to live this way. I believe there is a better way, let’s find it and change this destructive path, if not for us then for the next generation.
