There’s hope sweeping across America – not only to save the economy but to save everyday Americans from the rising epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and more. Healthy role model Michelle Obama, our First Lady, is taking charge and adding promoting a healthy lifestyle to her hefty personal agenda.
In addition to taking on support of working and military families, Mrs. Obama has been urging Americans to increase the inclusion of fresh, unprocessed, and locally grown foods to their families and to share throughout the community. While visiting a drop-in center serving the homeless last week, she pointed out that the kitchen was only serving fresh food – nothing canned or processed. Mrs. Obama suggests communities come together to build community gardens and share with those in need.
We’re impressed with Mrs. Obama’s practical take – she acknowledges that everyone has a “hankering” from fast food from time to time, but that it’s all about moderation. This is something she says that everyone, including ordinary families, can take on. Excellent…. Thank you Mrs. Obama!
