(I’m a big fan of TED Talks. Regardless of the subject matter, the talks are always interesting, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Occasionally, I will be sharing some of my favorites, which stand on their own without much commentary needed from me.)
Jamie Oliver is a chef turned food activist. In this passionate and eye-opening TED Talk, he implores us all to participate in his Food Revolution. He wants us to teach our children about food: where it comes from, how to cook it, and how to eat it in a healthful way. Citing sky-rocketing statistics of obesity among children and revealing the frightening reality that more and more children are going to die from diet-related diseases, he says radically changing our relationship with food is a must.
