Michelle Obama — Feed The Governors; Malnourish The Children
Charlotte Allen sent me this link to a blog item by Keith Koffler on White House Dossier on how the governors who came to dinner at the White House got a far healthier meal than Michelle Obama is trying to stick American’s kids with (save for the governors’ bread, mac and cheese and dessert if you know how unhealthy these carbs are for humans).
Here’s the proposed crap lunch for kids for Wednesday from the White House website:
Chef’s salad: (1 cup romaine, .5 oz low-fat mozzarella, 1.5 oz grilled chicken) with whole wheat bread
Soft pretzel (2.5 oz)
Corn, cooked (1/2 cup)
Baby carrots, raw (1/4 cup)
Skim chocolate milk (8 oz)
Low rat ranch dressing (1.5 oz)
Low fat italian dressing (1.5 oz)
The kids’ food is terribly unhealthy. Kids need fat. Skim milk is basically white water. Lowfat dressing replaces fat with sugar. Flour in the bread and pretzel cause the insulin secretion that puts on fat (per Gary Taubes). Fat — ideally, meatfat — nourishes brains. A banana is a sugar factory with peel. And the whole kids’ meal is just an awful, icky, and tasteless bore.
Here’s what the governors got:
Bread and butter
Ribeye steak 12 oz
Crab mac and cheese
Pear tart with ice cream
What the blogger doesn’t understand is dietary science (which doesn’t stop him from writing about it like he knows what he’s talking about). What Michelle Obama, who has zero science background, is encouraging kids to eat is absurdly unhealthy.
P.S. Gregg got me a couple of ribeyes and left them in my fridge so I’d have food to eat after my trip. Many of you have seen this before, but for those of you who are new around here, this is a body on ribeyes, creamed spinach, bacon, buttered green beans, heavily dressed salads, and white wine. (I eat a scoop of ice cream once a week, but otherwise no flour, sugar, starchy vegetables like potatoes, fruit or fruit juice.)
