Here are some things I have been seeing around the internets this week. Some new, some old, some revisted. I have been sharing them on facebook, but thought I would share them here too for those of you not following Mint&Chilli on facebook.

Have you heard of meat glue. ICK! Makes me want to live on or next to a far to get my meat direct! It is so sad that our meat is abused like this.

Mint&Chilli is SO sad to hear that Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution has been replaced on ABC Family with Dancing with the Stars. What a low blow to Jamie, he is just trying to help the children. I am very disappointed, they say it is because of ratings – but ratings don’t have to rule. I hope they will stick to their word start it up again in the summer.

Have you seen when Jamie tries to explain to American children what is in there ‘chicken’ nuggets and they still want to eat them. It is so sad. I know this is video overload, but give them a watch.
