The publisher of a book Michelle Obama is writing about her White House produce garden says it will be called "American Grown."

Crown Publishers announced Monday that the complete title of the first lady's first book is "American Grown: How the White House Kitchen Garden Inspires Families, Schools and Communities." It is scheduled to be published in April.

The book will explore how improving access to healthy, affordable food can influence eating habits for the better and improve public health.

Michelle Obama, Rahm Emanuel team up on food policy

Excerpt:

For 22 months, first lady Michelle Obama has been traveling the country on her healthy eating and anti-childhood obesity drive. On Tuesday, she is taking her crusade home to Chicago, where low-income neighborhoods on her native South Side are underserved by grocery stores.

These areas — known as “food deserts” — have been a focus of Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign since she kicked it off on Feb. 9, 2010. In Chicago, Mrs. Obama is teaming up for a conference with Mayor Rahm Emanuel, President Barack Obama’s former chief of staff, who took up the food desert issue during his mayoral campaign.

Under Emanuel, the City Coun­cil in September revised zoning ordinances to allow city farms and create more opportunities to sell locally grown produce, and the Chicago Park District is getting rid of junk food in vending machines.

Emanuel has invited about a dozen mayors active in urban food policy to Chicago to the conference, including Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Mrs. Obama is bringing top Obama administration food, health and community development financing officials and Chicago native Sam Kass, the White House Senior Policy Adviser for Healthy Food Initiatives. Kass is also a White House chef who helps oversee Mrs. Obama’s White House kitchen garden.

~~~~~~~

Gee .. with gardening, dictating national/government food/health policy, doing the Chicago Way Food Thing with Rahm, handling state dinners, leading exercise classes, personal jaunts, and wifely/motherly duties, where DOES she find the time to write a book?

Clue Michelle, black doesn’t always make one look thin.

We all know she isn’t writing this. Saying the gardner wrote it would be more believable. The title was incomplete. It should be American Grown Grifter, or How To Be A Professional Leech.

Couple of things here this woman telling the American public the proper foods to eat for healthy living is like Oprah giving dieting advice. Also if Barry doesn't get re elected how long before she takes up residency in some state she has never lived in and runs for some office.

I am pretty sure that the White House kitchen garden does not, in fact, inspire “families, schools and communities”. What a bunch of malarkey.

Considering it was her garden, this book must be about how she is inspiring the country.

How timely....just as her husband and his band of marxist pencil pushers are destroying our farming industry. I guess we are all going to be growing our own food in our backyard before too long. At least we all know where there is an abundance of bs to incorporate into our ‘organic’ gardens....1600 Penn Ave. LOL!

Oh please-—she’s telling America how to garden?

The buzz was she planted seeds in June then three weeks later she was picking king size vegetables.

Musta been a lot of late-night digging to transplant the veggies from the greenmarket to the WH “garden.”

So, this broad can travel around the world on the taxpayer’s dime and sell books. We the people are stupid to allow what goes on in D.C.
