    New Food Plate nutritional advice

    Primal Fuel
    What do you all think of this new recommendation? A little less lame as the food pyramid or equally catastrophic?

    There is minor mention of essential oils in the text. You get the idea that whoever wrote it was holding their nose and making a bad face. I bet that was painful.

    Overall, the message totally sux.

    We talk about macronutrients, fat, carbs, protein....They talk about groups, and pretend that fat does not or should not exist.

    They just did a story about it on the news. Still heavy on the grains and light on Satan Meat.

    Whatever.

    It's not like anyone actually eats according to the food pyramid, no matter what it looks like.

    Heard about it on NPR today, and my partner and I looked at each other and said "Inflammation!" when we heard about all the healthy whole grains we are supposed to be eating.

    Maybe if we stopped feeding our masses so much grain, we wouldn't need to constantly dumb everything down...
