Michelle Obama And Paula Deen In The Middle Of A Food Fight

Filed under: Barack ObamaJay LenoMichelle ObamaDietsFoodPaula Deen

Michelle Obama and Paula Deen feud

Where's the beef? Rumor has it that it's between Michelle Obama and Paula Deen!

Both are busy promoting books with very different messages. Michelle's American Grown advocates eating homegrown veggies, while Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible advocates buying a deep frier.

The rumored feud arose because of Michelle's 2008 guest appearance on Paula's Party, which occurred before Barack was elected leader of the free world and before Michelle launched her nationwide healthy eating initiative.

Paula not only references her encounter with the First Lady in her latest cookbook, but has also been pointing out Michelle's not-so-healthy eating habits in interviews, saying:

"She’s no different than the rest of us. She probably ate more than any other guest I ever had on the show! She kept eating even dur­ing commercials. Know what (the Obamas’) favorite foods are? Hot wings. Y’know – those kinds of foods that aren’t necessarily top-of-the-list healthy foods.”

A source then told the National Enquirer that Michelle is NOT happy that the celeb chef is flapping her gums about her family's favorite greasy snacks. The source goes on to suggest Michelle believes it's an attack on her husband's presidency, saying:

“Michelle’s spitting mad. She thinks Paula is trying to smear her and her family just as the 2012 presidential election race swings into gear.”

Deen, on the other hand, is denying any reports of a food feud between the two and has changed her tune a bit when describing Mrs. Obama's eating habits, explaining:

"There's no truth in the story that Mrs. Obama called me to stop talking about her appearance on my program. We had the best time when she came on the show and I taught her how to make fried shrimp and fries. It was easy to see by her buff arms that the first lady follows a healthy lifestyle. But it didn't stop her from enjoying the food. Everything in moderation!"

We agree with that! There's nothing wrong with eating buffalo wings, french fries, or fried shrimp as long as they aren't being eaten every meal!

Based on President Obama's words to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show this week, it sounds like Michelle is still very much committed to encouraging the nation to eat healthier. He talked about his wife's candy treat selection for Halloween trick-or-treaters, saying:

"Halloween is coming up. [Michelle has] been giving, for the last few years, the kids fruit and raisins in the bag. And I said, 'The White House is going to get egged if this keeps up.' We need to throw some candy in there. A couple Reese's Pieces or something."

LOLz! Yes, if there is ever a day to cheat on your healthy diet, Halloween is it!

Woman Sets Record After Eating 183 Buffalo Wings In 12 Minutes!

Filed under: ZportzFood

Congrats!

Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas, who won the 2011 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest women's division, didn't need any gender segregation to set a world record at the 10th annual Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival this weekend!

She even bested the 2011 men's hot dog eating champion, Joey Chestnut, by 9 wings after downing 183 chicken wings in 12 minutes!

We can't even fathom eating that many chicken wings in a month! LOLz!

While we cringe at the idea of eating so much food in so little time, we marvel at Sonya's fine figure and ability to beat the boys at a game (most likely) created by boys!

Go gurl! Check out the video above to see Sonya in action!

Big Chain Restaurants Required To Post Calorie Count On All Menu Items

Filed under: DietsFoodHealth

Panera Menu

While some restaurants in states like California have already posted the calorie count for all items on the menu, the Food and Drug Administration is taking the initiative nationwide.

By 2012, any restaurant with 20 or more locations is expected to be required to post a calorie count for every menu item they sell.

As a result, restaurants are anticipating some of their favorite dishes won't be as appetizing once customers learn they are packed with more than 1,500 calories a serving.

Instead, they are re-evaluating what they sell and attempting to cut calories from their food to make it more desirable, as well as balancing out their high-calorie menu items with healthier options.

IHOP, for example, took its standard bacon-and-eggs breakfast, with 1,160 calories, and developed a version with turkey bacon and egg whites that has just 350 calories.

Panera Bread has made a similar effort to reduce the amount of calories in their food by switching to low-fat cheeses, using less oil, less sauce, less sour cream, as well as highlighting half-orders for sandwiches and soup.

As a result, the company developed a 300-calorie salad and dropped a breakfast sandwich's calorie count from 650-calories to 350!

While this probably won't ward off TOO MANY people's appetites for favorites like buffalo wings, outrageous nachos, or juicy steaks, it is at least forcing restaurants to offer healthier options and informing their customers of what they are really consuming.
