(CNN) — Michelle Obama may be the first first lady who can kick your butt.

In comments as part of a “Twitter Town Hall” she hosted Monday morning, the first lady said kickboxing is her favorite stress reliever. Of course, she also said children should be exercising 60 minutes a day and that they should steer clear of processed foods whenever possible.

Questions ranged from how to encourage healthy eating habits among children to what steps can be taken to combat negative body image among young adults.

The first lady emphasized serving fruits and vegetables at a young age is key to developing health eating habits and said it is important to “Focus on how kids feel, not how they look.”

And what about Mrs. Obama’s favorite winter recipe?

“I love turkey & veggie chili,” she said.
