Food Is Not Your Enemy

Out With the Pyramid, In With the Plate

At long last, the USDA has ditched the confusing pyramid and has unveiled instead, ta da, the plate! It all became official today.

The plate is a real improvement over the pyramid–easier to understand, clearer about portions. But I still don’t love that the USDA is sticking with its “make half your grains whole” recommendation and continuing with its big push to drink lots and lots of milk. But hey, I wasn’t really expecting perfection from an agency that still must answer to the food industry.
