What is it that they are teaching the kids these days about diet and nutrition? Some sort of food pyramid? It sounds so complicated to me. How the heck are you supposed to eat six servings of something in a day? Are we supposed to have second breakfasts, like hobbits? And how many servings are there in a foot long Subway, anyway? I was taught the four basic food groups. That is simple, balanced and so elegant. It’s been many years since I was in public school. Let me see, if I can remember them all:
- fast food
- frozen food
- junk food
Yes, my memory is foggy, but I think those were the four food groups. To this day, I’m very careful to eat a well balanced diet based upon these four food groups.
