"They're turning over all the land which is what people do with machines, but you know, we do it with pigs," Jared Pickard tells me as a few small black pigs wander out of the woods on Fowler Farms outside Athens, Georgia. They are followed by a few larger red ones. They give me a sniff and move on.

Sara Leeder is a producer on The Cafferty File.

“Hi, honey. I’m home. What’s for dinner?”

Ok, maybe I don’t always say “honey,” but most nights when walking through the door at 7:30, I do ask what’s for dinner. My husband and I both work full-time jobs and we both take care of our toddler son, but my husband gets home from work a couple of hours earlier than I do. This means that if we’re going to eat a home-cooked meal, he will be the one slaving over the hot stove. As it turns out my husband is part of a growing group of men who are doing the cooking. Some of them are so into it, they’re called “gastrosexuals.”

When we started dating, I used to joke with my him that I was the only one who ever did any cooking. Well, not anymore. Two to three nights a week he’s the one sautéing, slicing and dicing. And he’s not half bad either.

We all know that healthier eating is beneficial to our well being. It makes us feel better, look better, be more productive and energetic and possibly help us live longer. Those are all dandy things, but sometimes that plate of nachos just looks waaaaaay too delicious to pass up.

So what's an eater to do?

Jen Christensen is a CNN Investigative Producer. She recently spoke with Alice Waters, chef and owner of Chez Panisse, and founder of The Chez Panisse Foundation, which "envisions a school curriculum and school lunch program where growing, cooking, and sharing food at the table gives students the knowledge and values to build a humane and sustainable future."

Chef Waters shared the following statement with CNN.

"50 years ago the President of the United States was worried about the health of this nation. So he inspired a program in the public schools that touched every single child, and it was very expensive to build tracks, to buy equipment and teachers, but it became part of every childs’ experience in school."
