USDA Dumps the Triangle for Choose My Plate

I truly believe the USDA is headed in the right direction!

I would make the Vegetable part of the plate 1/2 fresh vegetables, but that’s me.  I would make the suggestion for all grains be whole grains.  I see the value of making 1/2 the grains whole grains.  Since so many Americans do not eat enough whole food or whole grain, beginning by eating at least half of our grains that are whole is a great place to start.  Somethings I like about this plate concept is that it is easier to use when you are filling your plate, and there is a suggestion to add more vegetables.  For people with health issues like Celiac disease, there is a need to make sure the grains are gluten-free. (But that’s another post. Smile).  So pick up your copy of the Ten Tips and I think you will be a little close to making healthier food choices.

I will continue to share the focus of each section of the plate and make my suggestions as well.
