A Michelle Obama Favorite

This week marks the second anniversary of USDA’s MyPlate, the food icon that reminds us to build a healthy plate with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean proteins, and fat-free or low-fat dairy at every meal. MyPlate and its partners have been celebrating My Plate’s Birthday all week and today, First Lady Michelle Obama joined in the fun, pulling together some of her favorite MyPlate-inspired dishes to be featured on the My Plate Recipes Pinterest board.

First Lady Michelle Obama choose dishes that are tasty, easy to make, and nutritious. Dishes include dinner entrees to salads to refreshing desserts. Check them out and tell us what you like best with the hashtag #MyPlateBirthday.

The MyPlate Recipes Pinterest board is a collaboration among the Partnership for a Healthier America, Let’s Move!, MyPlate and the nation’s top recipe creators, which makes thousands of tasty recipes available to anyone looking for healthier meals.
