The First Lady recently sat down with People magazine and said that family life in the White House is better than ever:

She and the President wake up early — she rises at 5:30 a.m. — and they exercise in the White House gym and enjoy breakfast together nearly every morning.

The White House chefs cook them “mean waffles and grits,” she said.

“We have dinner as a family together every night, and Barack, when he’s not traveling, tucks the girls in,” she said. “We haven’t had that time together for (years), so that explains a lot why we all feel so good in this space.”

Michelle said the secret to the First Couple’s well-being is exercise, humor and an extraordinary mellowness.

Those grits and waffles are definitely not hurting Michelle’s body!!!
