“I’m really enjoying the healthy-eating initiatives the first lady is promoting. Organic vegetables, eating smart, fighting childhood obesity — this stuff will save lives. But occasionally there are disconnects between what the first lady is promoting and where the cameras spot you eating.

“I mean, the cheeseburger with fries at Peggy Sue’s Cafe in Monroe City, Mo., in late April? Yikes. And then, a few days ago, a stop at Duff’s for buffalo wings? Double yikes. Buffalo wings are so loaded with fat they make cheeseburger fans feel better about themselves.

“I realize that, as a man of the people, you have to dig into what the locals eat. When in Buffalo, N.Y., as you were this month, delivering a speech on the troublesome economy to a particularly hard-hit city, you’re not going to be grabbing a steaming mound of quinoa at the local veggie restaurant. But wouldn’t it be cool if you did?

“But this effort needs a slogan. How do you feel about ‘Yes We Kale?’”

– Chicago Tribune food critic Phil Vettel telling President Obama to eat a damn salad already! We happen to think Vettel makes a good point. Telling Americans to eat healthier is all well and good, but if you don’t practice what you preach than what’s the point? To read Vettel’s entire letter to the president, visit ChicagoTribune.com.
