Dinner at the White House

By • May 30, 2012 • 1 Comment


Yesterday, we covered the release of the First Lady’s new cookbook, American Grown, in which she delivers produce-driven, garden-fresh recipes to help home cooks brighten their dinners. It’s all part of Michelle Obama’s mission to create a culture of wellness in America, and if this broccoli soup is any indication, it’s well on its way.

But how does her healthy-food rhetoric make its way to the White House dinner table? In the form of food rules. We’re talking brown rice instead of white, a lot of vegetables, and only a little dessert. They don’t underestimate the importance of a family meal, either:

"At 6:30 we make it a point, that if we're in town...we sit down and and have a meal as a family," the First Lady says. It looks like they have their priorities straight.
