™ Remember the Food Pyramid ? Now it is  MyPlate. It is much easier to understand, but the problem is implementation. Fruits and vegetables take up half of the plate, with the vegetable portion being a little larger than the fruit portion. It really is the healthiest way to eat, but I could never find time to eat enough fresh fruit and vegetables. Prepackaged instant food is so easy to grab off the grocery store shelf, and there are at least ten fast food restaurants that are within a couple of miles from my home. That kind of eating leaves me tired, sick, cranky and even depressed.
