Loved this article. Helped me in a time of serious re-commitment to my daily food requirements.
Great article, lots of info.
Interesting... in Canada the food guide was changed so that the biggest section is fruits and vegetables and grains come after.
fiber is very important in our daily diets. we need to take in 14 mgs of fiber for every 1000 calories we consume. remember this
How about the fruit and vegetable smoothies with additives available?
As JACK LALANNE who is 93 yo says: If a man makes it, I don't eat it. We need to eat natural food to stay healthy. Food companies get rich from selling processed food at high cost, which has made Americans fat.
