Celeb chef teams up with Michelle Obama

MarvinCoverMarvin Woods has cooked for famous people before.

(You know, like Oprah Winfrey? People like that.)

But when the call came from the White House, the chef-author-television personality was momentarily taken aback. He even canceled a scheduled appearance so he could fly up to Washington to take part in a healthy-eating project championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

“I’m not big on canceling appointments,” Woods told us during an interview this week. “But it’s the White House! Apart from cooking for Oprah, this was the pinnacle.”

Woods, who got to meet Michelle Obama but not her husband (yet!) shot a “Webisode” for the new Let’s Move site, which stresses healthy eating. The roughly five-minute long clip, during which he demonstrates turkey, pork and tofu dishes with vegetables, is online now at www.letsmove.gov.

Don’t feed the first lady what you fed fat-assed Oprah!
Also,avoid the foods that makes O attracted to Gayle!
That would be terrible for the white house.
