Michelle Obama Unveils Food Pyramid (And It Has A New Shape!)

That food pyramid you grew up with and thought of as the bible to healthy eating? Gone. Because today Michelle Obama introduced the government’s new food icon: a plate.

Instead of the pyramid broken up into sections we now have a plate divided into four sections: fruits, veggies, grains, and proteins, with a cup of dairy on the side.

“When a mom or dad comes home from a long day of work, we’re already asked to be a chef, a referee, a cleaning crew,” the first lady stated. “So it’s tough to be a nutritionist, too. But we do have time to look at our kids’ plates.”

The revamped nutrition outline reflects the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which promotes portion control, switching from low-fat or no-fat dairy choices (we’d argue soy is even better!), and increasing water instead of sugary options.

What do you think of this new plate icon? Let us know below!

CCTV Makes Killing Okay – Who Would’ve Guessed It?

A bill was passed in France on January 12th, making video cameras in slaughterhouses mandatory from 2018. Call me crazy but, the idea that animals somehow benefit from having their unjustifiable deaths caught on camera seems so stupid as to…
