Michelle Obama's Dinner Rules

Today, Michelle Obama's American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America hits shelves across the country–with proceeds going to the National Parks Foundation. The first lady's first book not only details the progress of her garden, but also includes advice on raising a healthy family. In an interview on NPR's Morning Edition, Obama discussed some of her family diet rules: infrequent desserts, lots of vegetables and no white rice–only brown. While a home garden inspired by Obama's work at the White House will take time to flourish, you can implement some of her tips tonight by making Ginger-Marinated Chicken with Onions and Peppers. Served over brown rice, the healthy chicken and vegetables get an added layer of flavor from a touch of honey.
