food pyramid is food plate

The Food Pyramid is Now a Plate

Do you remember the Food Pyramid? Are you aware of the new guidelines? Instead of a pyramid, the US government has adopted the plate. The food pyramid is now a plate. What a practical way of displaying how we should eat!

A medical doctor, who happens to be vegan, developed this idea years before the government decided to update their stance on food and nutrition. You have probably noticed that may restaurants have been asking you what kind of “protein” choice you would like with your salad or other meals. Years ago, protein used to always mean meat. But now that definition has expanded to include vegetable- and grain-based protein options.

One great leader in the world of nutrition is Dr. Barnard. A very well spoken man with great research, I truly appreciate his contribution to the world of nutrition. I recommend following his thinking on his blog. While attending a recent cruise called the Holistic Holiday at Sea, I was lucky enough to attend some of Dr. Barnard’s lectures. I find that each individual’s nutrient needs are very distinct in regards to their genetic makeup, lifestyle, and drive to optimize their mind and body.
