The Food Plate

The new proposal from the USDA is not bad. Of course, they can’t say “don’t eat processed food because it’s not really good for you” because the food industry is so heavily processed food. Plus, Americans are not used to eating real food any more.

Still, they could have simply done what Michael Pollan has proposed with his statement of “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” This requires, of course, that Americans understand the definition of food.

My cousin John posted this as a better version of the plate.

So I suggest this instead.
