End of the Pyramid

By Jeffrey the Barak

Following a recent failed revamp of the original infamous fattening American Food Pyramid, the USDA has introduced The Food Plate.

It really is quite simple, and easy to see that half of our food should be fruits and vegetables. It should be noted that a typical American meal may contain as little as zero fruits and vegetables, but sometimes there is a lettuce leaf and a tomato slice between the cheeseburger and the bun.

Anyway, this diagram is really quite easy to remember, unlike either of the preceding triangles. Good eating!


  1. This is so much easier to remember. I remember when we were in India, and I visited my friends homes, the food they ate rice, lentils, veggies and yoghurt in roughly the same proportions as indicated in the plate above!
