Sorry, kale. President Obama says his favorite food is broccoli


Broccoli just became the presidential green. That should help the powerhouse veggie regain some of the nutritional cache it's recently lost to kale.

President Obama told a student reporter at a “Kids’ State Dinner” today that his favorite food is…broccoli.

The statement was a far cry from George Bush, Sr.’s famous “I’m not going to eat any more broccoli!” proclamation made while he was president in 1990.

While Obama admitted to hating lots of vegetables as a kid, he said the distaste was largely due to the way the veggies were cooked.

“My family, when they cooked vegetables, they would just boil them and they’d get all soft and mushy,” Obama explained in the Washington Post. We can relate. What was with all of that boiling? (We’ll attribute it to pre-Food Network cooking ignorance.)

Either way, broccoli is a pretty commendable choice as far as favorite foods go, even if the President may be slightly stretching the truth to set a good example.

And maybe it will help the cruciferous nutrition powerhouse regain some of the cache it’s recently lost to its much trendier cousin, kale? —Lisa Elaine Held
