CNSNews.com ^ | March 14, 2014 | Associated Press

Posted on 03/17/2014 5:39:00 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

WASHINGTON (AP) — Next up for "Let's Move?" How about "Let's Cook."

Michelle Obama said Friday that a new focus of her anti-childhood obesity effort will be to help people cook more of their meals at home because they're healthier.

Addressing a health summit in Washington, the first lady said home-cooked meals have less fat, sodium, cholesterol and calories than meals prepared in restaurants — and save money, too.

Let’s Cook? With me, it’s more like Let’s Eat From The Can.

Home-cookin’ Nanny State PING!

And under her school lunch program it is illegal for you to send lunch to school with your child. It has to be provided by the gubmint.

I’d rather cook at someone else’s home. Then THEY have to clean up after.

Friggin’ elitist moron! Does she think I can afford to do anything other than cook at home with basic staples? If she really wants to help her husband’s victims she should put out a good road-kill cookbook.

Old Her Royal Porcine Butt is still unable to find a mirror in our White House to see how huge her posterior is.

Sure would be nice to find one so she could start a “Hey, I’m getting on a treadmill” craze.

Incredible that this very overweight woman is still worried about other people being overweight.

C’mon late-nite comedians . . . these are easy jokes! When are you going to start on her?

Michelle, you big dummy! I cook with butter coconut oil and bacon and salt and eggs and fatty meats, etc. I don’t give a crap about what you think is healthy.

That sow, who couldn’t find a better cause than telling Americans what they can eat, wants us to cook at home, and her faggot husband wants us to move out of houses and into huts. Seriously America, ...one term of these pigwits was more than enough, but two...?

I love to cook. I love cooking all of my own meals and cooking for others, and I detest processed food, fast food, and almost all restaurant food. But now that Moochelle is all aboard the home-cooking river boat, well, I’m now having some major second thoughts ...

Kind of a huge assumption that home cooking is always healthier. If it involves eating processed foods, probably not. You might be much better off eating at a good restaurant.

TV dinners! What a treat those were in my childhood :-) Everybody could have something different.

I think we had those two or three times a year on special occasions such as “Mom’s away and Daddy has to cook.”

Hey, they all get cooked at home! Still laughing.

At work back in the day, the older guys kept their TV dinners in the lab film refrigerator and heated them in the lab heat treat ovens for their lunch.

Restaurants are the biggest manufacturing segment left in America. The Obama’s are looking to destroy that industry next. Then they will nationalize the restaurant industry and the wookie will direct the menus for all of us.

No more hamburger flipper jobs because hamburgers will be outlawed

I usually cook at home because only then can I be certain that the foods are allergen-free. It’s not easy eating out when you can’t tolerate black pepper or ginger.

Yes, you would probably need to purchase meat from the butcher, fresh veggies and fruits, extra virgin olive oil and real butter, and scratch ingredients for bread and desert.
