The U.S. Department of Agriculture has replaced the food pyramid with a more user-friendly plate icon to help Americans make healthy food choices.
We want to know what your ideal plate looks like. Our editor, Kat, created her version, which consists of some not-so-healthy helpings of fried okra, cherry pie, cheese grits, pulled pork, and a glass of scotch.
So, health repercussions aside, show us what your ‘MyPlate’ would look like. Turn your plate into a piece of art and send it to CNN iReport by Sunday at 5 p.m. EST. Your plate may be featured on Eatocracy, so let’s get creative!
hmmm...a blank template ya....:)
Laugh it up people, I wonder if you'll be laughing when you're in the hospital after a heart attack and your health care provider denies you coverage for all or part of your care. It sure will seem hilarious then, won't it? Yee haw!!
WOW...fried okra, cherry pie, cheese grits, pulled pork, and a glass of scotch? Kat... MARRY ME!!!
tequila. Damn keyboard!
Pulled pork = meat, slaw = veg, tortillas = starch, tomatillo-avocado salsa = fruit, tequilla = dairy. MMMMMMM!
And so begins the spiral into Idiocracy.
i'd like to know how much $ the gov't is wasting on this.
They spent $2 million to adjust it into a plate and create necessary pamphlets and such for training and re-education...
my plate will look like a pyramid, a great heap of seared meat and rice. Vegetables are for bunnies, fruit is for parrots and monkeys. Milk is for babies. I don't drink water, fish poop in it.
add in an ice cream sundae and im there.
Love this as we can visualize a "plate" and what to put on it. And also the related "fist of food" concept when eating meat so we don't overdo it on portions! Portions and right balance of Protein/Carbs/Vegetables/Fat is key but gotta keep it practical and easy to follow which the "Plate" concept does!
Does someone have a blank template?
I can post one for us if you like.
