Lane 8 Food Pyramid

Eat More Cheesecake?
Eat More Cheesecake?

Anyone out there disagree that diet and exercise are a good way to control and maintain decent health?

Anyone not heard of the Food Pyramid?

Okay, so these things are well-known common knowledge, right?

What’s at the base, the foundation, of the the food pyramid?

Then explain to me please, why is it that people will pick apart a sandwich and eat the meat and discard the bread?

Not trying to make anyone feel bad, I’m seriously trying to understand this. It confusing and bewildering.

Do these people know something that the rest of the scientific nutritional world is clueless to?

  1. Your bread question – there are big issues with wheat. Bread can be a highly problematic and addictive food. Wheat is one of the most sprayed crops, and can have high pesticide residues. Then there’s the yeast, and all the preservatives in the finished supermarket-ready product.

    Personally – I feel awful when I eat bread. When I don’t – I feel great!. I’d suggest you check out plus there are plenty of other resources.

  2. Sue, thank you for your comment. Love the diversity of your thinking compared to traditional thinking. Thank you for speaking up. It’s great to get a conversation going.

    When I lived in eastern Washington State (the Palouse), where they historically grow more wheat per acre than anywhere else in the world (volcanic-rich soil), I never saw a crop-duster plane as you have described.

    Anyway, we should all make eating decisions that combine our body’s tolerance with old fashioned sound judgement.

    All the best to you and your health. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

  3. Good to hear there’s at least one place on earth that’s not sprayed! Organic is a great option of course. The thing that annoys me about people who pick the contents out of their sarnies, isn’t that they aren’t eating the bread – it’s that they weren’t offered a bread-free alternative in the first place! Such a waste. ;o)
