So much for the diet: Anti-obesity crusader Michelle Obama feasts on ribs during pricey family vacation
Michelle Obama feasted on ribs while on her skiing holiday, it has emerged. The First Lady, who has spearheaded a campaign to change American eating habits, ate ancho-chile short ribs from a restaurant next to her luxury ski hotel in Vail, Colorado.
The first lady went to Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail Village on Saturday night, dining on a braised ancho-chile short rib with hominy wild mushrooms, the Vail Daily reported. Chef and owner Kelly Liken said: ‘Yes, it’s true, the first lady dined at our restaurant tonight and seemed to really enjoy it.’
Speaking on his radio show Rush Limbaugh said: ‘The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritional, dietary advice. And then we hear that she’s out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving (assuming she had 4 to 6 pieces)… I’m trying to say that our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. She’s a hypocrite. Leaders are supposed to be leaders. If we’re supposed to go out and eat nothing, if we’re supposed to eat roots and berries and tree bark, show us how.”
The Let’s Move! campaign states, “But in today’s busy world, this isn’t always easy. So Let’s Move! offers parents and caregivers the tools, support and information they need to make healthier choices while instilling healthy eating habits in children that will last a lifetime.”
Ah yes, short ribs for dinner. And remember that Super Bowl Party Menu? Wouldn’t a salad have been more responsible? I understand that it’s really not our business what she eats and that occasional exception can be made. Yet if you chose to be a champion for healthy eating, I suggest you lead by example for the children, and cut back on the cheeseburgers and Obama cut back on the junk food.
