So it looks like the USDA's come out with yet another revision to the food pyramid.
This time, it's called MyPlate:
What do you guys think of this incredibly innovative new way of thinking about food? (sense some dripping sarcasm there?)
What ways of eating might this visual perpetuate, in terms of what proper food is? How is it different than the food pyramid that many of us grew up with? What is the USDA (and Michelle Obama, who helped back this) saying about what we should and shouldn't eat, and how much of it?
I'd love to have some discussion about this, and the way that government shapes assumptions about a healthy diet.
