Who knew Michelle Obama had such a green thumb? In addition to promoting her Let’s Move campaign to get kids active, she just released her first book today titled American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America ($19.20 at Amazon.com).

It’s part memoir, part coffee table photos, part cookbook, and all about going green. The First Lady dishes on the White House Garden, depicts gorgeous pictures of greenery across the country, and teaches you how to grow your own and compost.

The best part? The book is divided into the four seasons, and at the end of each section there are healthy recipes that use the foods grown during that time of year.

We can’t wait to get started serving up summertime’s seasonal offerings. Strawberries, blueberries, corn, basil, and cucumbers sound good right about now, right?
