Yay for Jamie and his Food Revolution

Robert came in from his office telling me about this great Ted talk he had watched. Great but heart wrenching, about how the top killers in the US are all food related illnesses. Well he didn't tell me it was Jamie Oliver talking! I have been a fan of Jamie's since running across his cookbook in the home of my friends Angela and John. I have checked his books out from the library, as well as a DVD of his show 15, and am a sucker for his Essex accent and charm. May we all inspire ourselves and our children to a better food future:

Small Change for February

So... the diapers are not made yet, but I did leave for 10 days in January, and so I will get them done in this short month. For February, I would like to commit to bringing my grocery bags every time I go to the store. I have a lot of them. My Mom made some for Christmas last year, so I even have pretty bags. I usually take them when I go to the Co-op, especially if it is a planned trip. However, we usually end up with plastic if we go to a different store. I would also like to sew a few more cloth produce bags so that I can quit using plastic there, as well. I wonder how everyone else is doing???
