- Soaking grains (I don’t get this. I haven’t had time to research it.)
- Grain/gluten free
- Remove the food I’m allergic/sensitive food form your diet because it could potentially kill me (for reals) so it’s bad for you too (maybe not)
- Eating/avoiding particular food for cultural/ethical/religious reasons
- Lactose/dairy free (That’s me. Whimper. I hate it)
- Meat and potatoes, stick to your ribs type of food in farm hand size portions (our young couple lives in farm country where farmers need and work off this type of diet.)
We're supposed to scrap the four basic food groups for the new new food pyramid.
A little better but I’m not sure how something like my Asparagus and Tomato Sautee compares to eat by the plateness portions. The plate doesn't list exactly what kind of food they put in each category either. The dairy portion implies a glass of milk which is great unless you are lactose intolerant like I am.
Are these portions per day or per meal? Not listing what type of food fits into each category could be confusing to the growing number of people who aren't familiar with what basic fruit and vegetables look like or those of us with special diets. I doubt a vegan is going to follow this dairy recommendation. I can't follow it if it contains lactose. However our bodies need the nutrients commonly found in dairy so what do those people do according to this diagram?

In the interest of full disclosure, I side with number four because that tidbit comes from Husband and I. You may disagree or it could be wrong for you but it works for us.
