The First Lady’s fall harvest (via Eatocracy)

I don’t care what other people say, Michelle Obama is doing a great thing for kids by teaching them how to eat correctly. It’s extremely difficult to know how to take care of a garden and say if these kids can pick it up then there’s something to be said about sustainability for the future. These kids won’t have to worry about salmonella or what types of pesticides they will be ingesting (for the most part, going out to eat or when they don’t have their own gardens are an entirely different story), but it’ll provide a healthier future for all of these kids.

If you read through the comments there are some bad ones. And I’m sitting here thinking, how could anyone think what she’s doing right now is bad.

“Who cares what she does? If she wants to impress America get on a plane and go to Kenya and take Barack with her one way!”

“HAHAHAHAHAHAH, too bad they place fully grown plants into the garden rather than actually grow anything. You know the rule IMAGE, IMAGE, IMAGE!”

Seriously? I don’t see where people get off pretending like they’re better than those people. Some people strive to make a difference. And as a foodie, starting at what we eat isn’t the worst place to start. You are what you eat.

Green acres, or at least the South Lawn, is the place to be — especially if you're First Lady Michelle Obama. The First Lady spent Wednesday afternoon picking pumpkins, turnips and sweet potatoes from the White House kitchen garden with students from Tubman and Bancroft Elementary Schools. The harvest was part of Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign, which aims to combat childhood obesity. [cnn-video url="http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/201Read More

About akindafoodblog

I'm a picky foodie in training. I can't stop talking about food, so writing about it seems like a normal transition. There are so many foods I don't like, and that's a bit of a problem. I don't really know how to cook but I love to bake. So I'm on a culinary journey and I want to invite everyone to join me.
