i am in love with the brilliant, intuitive new food pyramid. The plate interface allows families to build their meals together instead of building servings and trying to figure out how that fits with whatever menu or refrigerator options might be in front of them.
this is wonderful - i'm a planner, and my meals are no different. when i sit down to write out my week's menu, this plate is much easier to decipher than a triangle. it's per meal, rather than per day, so very simple. hopefully it goes into sizes - for example, a protein should typically be the size of a deck of cards. but at least this gets us all thinking in the right direction.
what do you think?
