about what you eat.
In Oliver’s case, many of the school districts don’t want to make the changes needed to enable them to serve our nation’s children healthy lunches.
In Michaelle Obama’s case, we have the “wonderfully smart” Glenn Beck (there’s two words you don’t ever see connected with Beck — wonderful and smart — and I only put them there for sarcastic effect), claiming that the First Lady’s campaign to help our nation’s children get healthy is leading us down a path to socialism (yeah, he’s that stupid).
So, for all those non-believers take a look at this…
and consider this…(taken from Jamie’s Ted talk):
“We spend our lives being paranoid about death, murder, homicide, you name it. It’s on the front page of every paper, [on] CNN. Look [at the graph] homicide is on the bottom…every single one of the ones in red are diet related disease…diet related disease is the biggest killer in the United States right now, here today.”
Jamie also points out that “the adults in the last four generations have blessed our children with the destiny of a shorter life span than their own parents. Your child will live a life ten years [shorter] than you because of the landscape of food we built around them.”
Let’s all pull together on this Meatless Monday and try to make a difference.
- Quit meat for the day.
- Think about what you are eating and why.
- Try to figure out how to get our nation (and our nation’s children) back on track.
- Think about ways you can make a difference in your own family and community.
Here’s to Meatless Mondays and taking back our health!
