I love me some Jamie Oliver.........

I've been a fan of Jamie Oliver for a long time......the guy is a great chef but more importantly- the guy is a great communicator and is passionate about healthy food.

I just watched his new show on ABC.

Making donuts for a living sort makes me feel like a crack dealer...but I don't hold a gun to any of my customers heads forcing them to buy donuts.

Ain't no way you can pretend donuts are good for you, so if you buy my stuff-eat it in moderation.

Not sure how well he is gonna go over in West By God Virginia.....but I can tell you that West Virginia isn't the only place in the USA that has loads of overweight people that have no idea what's in their food.

By no means am I a food chemist, but I've been in the food industry for 35 years in one form or another and I can tell you that if you read the label on the side of your favorite frozen food and you don't know or understand what some of the ingredients are or what they do......look them up on Google-you might be surprised what some of those unpronounceable chemicals actually are and what they do.

One of the companies I have worked for in the past would add a chemical to their donut dough just to make it easier to process it through their machinery....most food manufacturers don't have your best interest at heart.

Yeah, I'm just some dumbass that makes donuts for a living, but I see most of my customers....and there ain't many skinny donut enthusiasts.

till later.
