Michelle Obama Challenges Refinery29, We Respond

Yes, it happened. First Lady Michelle Obama issued Refinery29 a challenge as part of her #GimmeFive initiative to celebrate healthy living and lifestyle choices. She asked us to name five ingredients that a millennial woman (or anyone) can keep on hand to make delicious, healthy, simple meals. Challenge. Accepted. Our Executive Food Editor Elettra Wiedemann consulted with nutritionists and experts to come up with our five ingredients: broccoli, feta cheese, pasta, avocados, and oil. Then, we got celeb chef Roblé Ali, all-around-cool-person Tia Mowry, and major bloggers like Impatient Foodie, My Name Is Yeh, Eye-Swoon, Emily Sundberg (of SheLovesFood), and Inspiralized to create recipes using our ingredients so you are set to go. Check out the videos and the links below and start eating better today. And here's our challenge to you: Head to Twitter and Instagram to tell us your healthy moves with hashtag #GimmeFive and be sure to tag @Refinery29 as well.
