Mrs. Obama Serves Governors a 2,200 Calorie Meal

by Keith Koffler on February 28, 2011, 11:37 am

First Lady Michelle Obama Sunday night stuffed about 2,200 calories worth of dinner into the nation’s governors, hosting a White House bash that pulled few punches on the fattening front despite her profile as the leader of a national crusade to trim the waistlines of the country’s youth.

President Obama is meeting with governors from both Parties at the White House today. Sunday night’s dinner was a kind of welcoming gala. It provided enough calories for an entire day’s worth of eating.

P060309SA-0483

White House plate awaits huge deposit of calories.

What’s worse, several governors clearly are not malnourished and might have done well without dinner altogether.

The meal follows a recent State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao which probably forced him to put away about 2,900 calories. And a Super Bowl party where guests had access to eats totaling 3,600 calories.

Mrs. Obama is leading the “Let’s Move” campaign – which might also be known as the “Do as I say and Not as I Do” campaign – to reduce childhood obesity.

The first lady has not been shy about demonstrating her contention that healthy eating needs to balanced by some old fashioned cheating. She was seen just last weekend in Colorado chowing on a buffalo rib and has been photographed savoring cones and sundaes at ice cream ice cream shops from  Panama City, Fla. to Marbella, Spain.

Sunday, she served the governors beef instead of chicken, threw in some fattening plaintain chips even though she already had a side of black beans and rice for them, added an unnecessary dollop of honey to the tropical fruit dish, and dropped the coconut sorbet – otherwise not a bad dessert choice – into a “chocolate shell.”

Actually, HOW ABOUT NOT SERVING DESSERT AT ALL.

Of course these items generally aren’t on the new school lunch menu Mrs. Obama has crafted, which includes delicacies like steamed broccoli, cauliflower, cooked green beans, and oven baked fish nuggets.

Here’s a rundown of the governors’ menu and my CONSERVATIVE estimations of the calories consumed.

  • Salad of roasted pears with homemade ricotta, walnut crisps, with White House Kitchen Garden greens – 200 calories
  • bread and butter – 150 calories
  • Local black angus beef with blue crab – 550 calories
    - assuming an eight ounce NY Strip steak and crab meat without any kind of fattening sauce.
  • Plantain chips – 200 calories
  • Black beans and rice – 300 calories
  • Two glasses of wine – 200 calories
  • Coconut Sorbet in a chocolate shell – 400 calories;
    served with poached tropical fruits made with White House Honey – 200 calories

Total: 2,200 calories

The only greens that the WH Kitchen could be picking in February are pine needles and winter grass. Honey? they had enough honey to pour over 200+desserts from the WH bees. Nah. “local BlackAngus beef” are they kidding? where are the cattle ranches in DC?

In reality, not many people eat a meal like that when dining out. MrsO’s press office will say something like ‘it’s only a once in a while meal and the O’s eat chopped raw vegetables for dinner the rest of the time’.
MrO does look like he eats the veggies, MrsO not so much.

Actually, most restaurant meals are WORSE than that. Assemble a similar meal from the menus of any of the chain restaurants and steak houses and you could easily have a 4,000-5,000 calorie meal.

The point, John, is that if you eat healthy nutritionally balanced meals regularly, then it’s OK to splurge once in a while. If you and your family are living on Wendy’s, Dorritos, Pop Tarts and Soda, then it’s NOT OK to reward your self with a happy ending at Friendly’s. But if you have a salad, Meat and Vegetables for dinner and you wash it down with water or a glass of wine, it’s Ok to have a little piece of cake after wards. Stop being an ignorant hateful POS. She’s trying to help people. Not that your Crisco clogged carcass is worth saving.

Patrick, nice try at sucking up and spin, but that’s just not true at all. Calories are the same no matter where you eat them.

A 4-5k Calorie meal is something rarely seen in a Resturant anywhere…and unless they have one of those Ginormous 5lb Hall of Blubber contest meals we see on ‘Man Vs Food’ it just ain’t happening.

The real problem is the do as I say attitude. I personally could care less what she says. The Burst Lady is a heffer with hips like an Ox, and a mouth to match… and just like her husband, does not want us looking behind the Curtain at whats really going on. Can you say Transparency? No, they can’t either.

Let’s see: the governors’ are adults. They could have cut the steak in half (or just eaten the black beans and rice–great fiber), ate only half of the bread without butter, skipped the wine and drank 2 glasses of water, eaten the salad, and skipped dessert.

525 calories. That’s a decent, healthy meal.

It is all about choices.

Yes they are all adults. However, if the first lady wants to make fighting obesity as her signature cause then she needs to demonstrate that she takes her cause seriously through action. Why wouldn’t the WH serve a low cal fish dish with an exotic salad, brown or wild rice and fruit (with no honey or sugar) as a desert?

Seems Mrs. Obama is “living large” while BOTH in the Whitehouse AND on any of her vacations. While the Elitist eats like Royalty, she says the Peons should cut back on the calories. It’s like the Cheicheskews(sp) who lived like a king and queen, while their people starved. Eventually the people rose up, and stormed their castle, put them on trial, and they were eventually
hung. It’s the Obama double standards of living large(party on Fri. again
at the Whitehouse(while the rest of America is struggling) while SHE preaches for everyone else to cut back, and HE does the same thing.
Why doesn’t Obama CUT the budgets for all the politicos in the Sen. & House, AND their FREE college for their children, their perks(traveling like Pelosi, etal) and FREE health coverage-there’s plenty to cut with these politicos-AND the parties at the Whitehouse AND vacations.

That type of meal is merely a snack for her fat ass.
You should see the list of stuff she wolfs down when there are no witnesses.

Obama’s campaign is focused on childhood obesity. Not adult party menu’s. She is actually in very good physical shape, if she eats ribs or ice cream she certainly deserves it as an “old fashioned cheat”. Must be a slow news day at the White House.

Oh, no, not slow–what with Twilight of the Dictators etc–but we do love our menu chats here.

yeah, good physical shape if you consider a pear shape to be healthy. I find her behavior completely insulting, it’s like being at a stop light with a home less guy standing there with a sign and all that, and you pour out a soda or water or something in front of them because it “just wasn’t quite cold enough”. I’ve watched these 2 for 3 years now, it’s been 3 years and they’ve done nothing, nada, zero, zilch, other than take extravagant trips and host huge parties at the white house. (I’m not counting healthcare as anything, it wasn’t voted in, it was rammed down my throat, perhaps Wisconsin should take a lesson from that and just pass the bill already, give them a taste of their own medicine…at the expense of stooping as low as they did) They hosted a motown celebration but invited sheryl crow, and people still think this guy is the first black president? pffft, he’s a joke and his wife’s an embarassment.

If Moochelle’s campaign is focused on childhood obesity, then why is she strong-arming the National Restaurant Association to serve smaller portions of food to everyone? It is none of her business what a restaurant serves its customers. In addition, I am responsible for choosing what my children eat, not her. She can just take that big fat derriere of her’s and butt out.

If she weren’t the national food scold, I would care less if she ate an entire pie with ice cream three times a day.

I like how the excuse is always that it’s a “special event.” Then she lectures restauranteurs about what they should serve – although many of us see dining in a restaurant as a “special event.”

Love the big about the White House greens from the February garden. This is one couple than can really sling a lot of bull along with the hash fries.
