First Lady Makes Headway Calling For Healthy Foods
AP ^ | 9/15/11 | Mary Clare Jalonick and Darlene Superville

Posted on 09/15/2011 3:13:40 PM PDT by Lmo56

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Calorie by calorie, first lady Michelle Obama is chipping away at big portions and unhealthy food in an effort to help America slim down.

In the two and a half years since she announced her campaign to curb childhood obesity, Mrs. Obama has stood alongside Wal-Mart, Olive Garden and many other food companies as they have announced improvements to their recipes - fewer calories, less sodium, better children's menus.

The changes are small steps, in most cases. Fried foods and french fries will still be on the menu, though enticing pictures of those foods may be gone. High-sodium soups, which many consumers prefer, will still be on the grocery aisle. But the amount of sodium in each can will gradually decrease in some cases, and the taste of their low-sodium variety will be improved.

FYI: She actually DID eat this recently ...

Yes, it's the bi-annual Wookie rutting period.
I heard Obozo is going to appoint Moochelle as his Dietary Czarina

Makes sense to me.

Is she going to go into hibernation?

Nah, probably just some more vacations in Spain and Hawaii.

Meantime, when I got a takeout meal at McDonald’s a few weeks ago, I got only half as many fries, but for the same price. Thanks a bunch, Muchelle.

Is there anything they don’t want to control? (Besides the deficit).

I really don’t like that type of talk and I don’t think it has a place at FR.

What did Chewbacca ever do to warrant being compared to that beast?

My advice to Obama comes as a paraphrase from "Animal House" combined with Tim Meadows, "Da Ladies Man". Get drunk on Courvossier and spend the next six months on double secret probation, while pounding that caboose which follows your lady around. Pound it every hour, and from all sides. It's shape is getting outa hand. If the last year of your presidency is spent slamming that thang, America will be a whole lot better off. If it upsets Reggie Love and your flight attendant boyfriends, let them watch. The view for them will be familiar.

This was from another post, but it applies here as well.

another nice thing about eating in kosher restaurants is that they won’t go for Obama’s shtick

June 2011: Michelle Obama in South Africa, "No, if I picked one favorite, favorite food, it's French fries. Okay? It's French fries," Obama continued. "I can't stop eating them."

But YOU little people will stop eating them!!

Surely this is a joke. Moochelle should fix herself before taking on the rest of the country. That fix should take her a lifetime.

This huge, overfed, hefty woman should shut her mouth about people's kids being fat. Bad enough that she crapped all over our flag Sunday (with an approving nod from that illegal alien), but she continues to NOT SEE THE IRONY OF HER BEING SO HEAVILY OVERWEIGHT.

Don't they have mirrors in the White House, or are they all in Obama's room above his prayer rug?

How can she be that stupid to not see how fat she is and how ridiculous her preaching sounds.

Leave us, our kids, and our restaurants alone!

I heard that she dropped a fork in a restaurant and it started to go around her like a moon. And in one classroom she went to, when she turned around, her a$$ erased the blackboards.

Excellent news that they’ve solved that problem.

A bigger problem is the impact the huge weather system surrounding her posterior is having on the weather systems in places she visits. Some climatologists believe the recent earthquakes have been caused by her excesssive world travel.

It has to be kosher. If it is operated by reform Jews, it most likely WILL support Obama.

...and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.

Say Michelle, they're playing your song:

"Who let the dogs out..."

1 Kings 21.23 And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.

I saved the link. It seems that some of their dishes may eventually be ordered online. :)

We have Weintraub's in Worcester, but I doubt it compares with a New York deli. Still, it's not bad.

Did Darden Restaurants Inc. get a Barry Health Care Waiver?

Yes they did.I'm SHOCKED.

Darden Restaurants gets break on health-care reform law November 10, 2010|By Sandra Pedicini, Orlando

SentinelOrlando-based Darden Restaurants is getting a break on part of the health-care reform law requiring companies to raise significantly annual coverage limits for low-cost insurance plans starting next year.

Darden is among more than 100 companies nationwide that have received one-year waivers, including McDonald's, Ruby Tuesday and Cigna, which writes health insurance plans.

Good call on Darden Restaurants getting that Obamacare waiver.

The CEO of the place appears to be a friend of Obama. So now he takes 10% of his salt out over 5 years and gets a free national commercial courtesy of Michelle?

Corporate cronyism at its best.
