Say Goodbye to My Pyramid!
The USDA has just announced that the Food Guide Pyramid that we have known for so long is history! They introduced the new icon, MyPlate, to remind us to choose healthy foods at each meal. MyPlate shows us that half our plate should be covered with fruits and vegetables. How many of us actually do that?? A much needed reminder!
Check it out at choosemyplate.gov. The website has some great resources including how to plan a menu, tips for grocery shopping, and a food tracker to analyze your food intake.
