…to one-up the US as far as food and nutrition guidelines go. High five Canada, you guys really take the cake on this one.
When I was trying to figure out what on earth I was supposed to be eating last week, I first looked to the government, remembering the infamous Food Pyramid of my childhood. Since that’s now extinct, I checked out the “new and improved” version: MyPlate, which in my opinion is essentially useless. Unless you really dig around and click through a bunch of links, all it really tells you is to fill half your plate with fruits & veggies, a quarter with grains, and the other quarter with protein. Um, and then what? Thanks for providing me with next to nothing, United States Department of Agriculture.
It was great. It took less than five minutes, and it spit out a personalized food servings guide, complete with examples on how much a serving actually is—get this—based on some of my favorite foods that I selected from their food lists.
Amazing. I’ve been singing Oh, Canada all afternoon.
