Goodness. She is just so fierce.

First Lady Michelle Obama has been tirelessly promoting healthy eating habits in the country's youth since her time began at the White House, and now she plans to write a book about the kitchen garden she started there!

The as-yet-untitled publication is due out in April of 2012 from the Crown publishing group, and will shed some light on the first edible garden on the White House's South Lawn since Eleanor Roosevelt's WWII 'victory garden.' It will also include some of the Obama family's favorite healthy recipes!

Lovely! A perfect companion to the "Let's Move!" campaign!

Thanks for your dedication, gurl! We cannot wait to check this one out ourselves!

Precious! What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon!

Yesterday, Marcia Cross took a break from the hustle and bustle of Wisteria Lane to spend a little quality time with her girls, Savannah and Eden.

The trio of lovely ladies put their green-thumbs to work as they planted lovely yellow and mauve pansies in the front garden of their El Lay home.

Marvelous! By spring, Eden will have her own eden to play in! Lovely!

Garden Vending Machines In Japan

Garden Vending Machines In Japan

If you’ve ever wished that you could get a head of lettuce out of the vending machine instead of a Snickers, you may be in luck. Garden vending machines called “The Chef’s Farm” are becoming popular in Japan.

The machines are designed to grow plants without the use of sunlight, and are perfect for urban environments. They will marketed towards restaurants who are looking for fresher produce and also want to save money (the machine will pay itself off within five years).

This is such a great idea, especially for big cities that don’t have room for gardens!

Alice Waters Aims To Fix School Lunches

Filed under: FoodHealth

And if there was anyone to do it, it would be her!

The mother of the slow food movement, chef Alice Waters, is concerned about school lunches and the quality of the food served to students. Considering the most commonly served meal to students is chicken fingers and french fries, no one can deny there is a problem.

Waters and her Chez Panisse Foundation envision "a school curriculum and school lunch program where growing, cooking, and sharing food at the table gives students the knowledge and values to build a humane and sustainable future."

If only the schools would fund it. CLICK HERE to get all the deets!

Brilliant.
