Yay Michelle!

So there's a Times article in today's paper about how awesome Michelle Obama is. Well.... actually it's about how she's trying to promote people eating fresh and locally grown produce by promoting it in soup kitchens and the White House. It's pretty awesome. 

Here's a quote by the great lady herself (as written by author Rachel Swarns): 

“It’s like: How do we keep the calories down but keep the flavors up?” said Mrs. Obama, who also praised a healthy broccoli soup prepared by White House chefs.

“That’s one of the things that we’re talking a lot about,” she said. “When you grow something yourself and it’s close and it’s local, oftentimes it tastes really good.
