Food Guide Pyramid

When I was in school--elementary, middle, high, and even college--there was always some lesson about the food pyramid. It was supposed to be a guide for how much of what things to eat. This is what it looked like for me in elementary and middle school.

Of course, by the time I reached high school the food pyramid was changed to include exercise as part of a healthy diet.

Here's a food guide pyramid that makes more sense to me now that I've leanred a few things about food and what our bodies need and want.

Kind of interesting to see different versions. One thing I love about bodies is that each one is unique. Each is its own story. And the best part is that even if we tell the same story over and over (like the pyramid) every single one is different.

Write on!
