    I call bullshit on the fruits & veggies...unless they are lumping in corn, corn-related products (HFCS), and vegetable oils into the vegetable category.

    The graph makes allowances for corn (56 pounds) and corn syrup (42 pounds, located in the pink "caloric sweeteners" category).
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

    As for the veggies, plenty of processed frozen meals have veggies in them...So, not all veggies listed are necessarily from the best sources. It also seems they added in that french fry value to the veggies. Maybe even ketchup? haha.
