Posted January 22, 2013 by Astrid in MatriPuntos

After President Barack Obama gave his inaugural speech on the steps of the Capitol building , he and some 200 guests, including his wife and daughters, celebrated with a quick, but quietly elegant, midday meal.

Prepared under the watch of the White House’s security team, the three-course meal was devised by executive chef Shannon Shaffer of Design Cuisine, the Arlington, Va., catering company that’s prepared and served the past five inaugural lunches.


One full serving is more than 3,000 calories! Lobster in clam chowder sauce, grilled bison and a finish of rich apple pie with homemade ice cream take no time to zip past a single day’s calorie reserve.CalorieCount.com‘s Rachel Berman, RD, CSR, CDN – who compiled this year’s Inaugural Luncheon nutritional statistics – was a little shocked by the numbers, too, and felt that although it’s fine and even healthy to treat ourselves once in a while, the figures were a bit too to justify.
