have a nugget of something

I’m a vegetarian and have been for many years now. Even so, I can respect cuisine of all varieties (even if I don’t eat it)–of the carnivorous persuasion and otherwise. It’s shocking, however, to consider the variety of disgusting processed byproducts our fast-food nation passes off as food–especially to our children. Jamie Oliver demonstrates this nicely in the following clip from his new show Food Revolution.

I swear I threw up a little in my mouth when Oliver revealed the contents of his food processor. What’s worse is the kids, having seen the true nastiness of the so-called “chicken nugget,” all said that they wanted to eat it once it assumed its “friendly” shape. My god, eat a carrot already–preferably organic. Too many children and adults live a life of processed junk, preservatives, McDonalds, and the like. Oliver is clear in his mission that we are killing ourselves and our children by cultivating a culture that offers and accepts these substances as food.

We’d all be better off if we knew where our food came from, got closer to it, and made simpler and even slower choices.
