Snack Like Obama: Fruit and Nuts

Today we inaugurate a new president. The man who will be president not only works out six days a week; Obama also believes in healthy snacking. I vote for that!

Barack Obama makes snacks of fruits and nuts. Pistachios, known to lower cholesterol, are his favorite nut. As for the fruit we can only figure that he eats seasonally, which means these days he is enjoying citrus fruits of all kinds.

It has been mentioned, and recorded on film, that Obama likes Fiji water — not necessarily the drink of the masses. I appreciate the need to stay hydrated when running on a tight schedule, but bottled water shipped from halfway around the planet seems like a double eco no-no. Today, I will be snacking for our new president with a couple of tangerines, my favorite citrus fruit, and some yummy pistachios. What about you?

If you're still trying to figure out a menu for your own inaugural ball, my pal Yum has some ideas for you.

Maybe he should snag one of those new Nalgene BPA-free bottles that they're giving away at the inaugural ball tonight. That and a Brita filter for his tap and he should be all set.

They keep talking about all the fashion trends, et al., this family will set. I hope the one trend they actually set - is following his workouts and healthy eating plan.
