GMA: Michelle Obama & Marcus Samuelsson Eating Healthy
First Lady Michelle Obama stopped by Good Morning America February 26 2013 with Red Rooster chef Marcus Samuelsson to cook a beef stir fry. As part of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! health initiative, which is fighting to end childhood obesity, Marcus Samuelsson and the First Lady have teamed up to create MyPlate, a website that currently offers 3,000 recipes for healthy food. Each meal allows for 50 percent of the plate to be vegetables and fruit to encourage people to eat healthier.
Robin Roberts joined them in the kitchen as they cooked. Although Michelle Obama said she doesn’t cook anymore because she doesn’t have time, she said she is always in the kitchen and loves to cook. She said this initiative is important, because people need to know there are healthy options that are both delicious and affordable.
