Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution

We’ve been following Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC.  If you haven’t seen it, check it out at http://www.jamieoliver.com/campaigns/jamies-food-revolution.   The Revolution is about saving America’s health by changing the way we eat.  He emphasizes creating a balance and adding years to your life by eating fresh, healthy foods.

Here are his 9 Food Rules. 

1. Cook at home

2. Avoid packaged foods

3. Avoid too much refined sugar

4. Trade refined grains for whole grains

 5. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables

6. Teach your kids to cook and use many different ingredients

7. Read labels and reject what you don’t understand

8. Choose food grown and raised close to home

9. Try new foods

If implementing these ideas all at once feels like to much.  Start by trying one or two a week and then just keep adding on from there.
