Food pyramid for moms


I only wish I could have taken the credit for coming up with this little gem. It is so true. It has been pasted on the inside of my pantry door for years now ... one of those things that your eyes just glaze over because it has always been there. Its point has been well taken, so it may just have to come down now. Things aren't quite as intense in the food pyramid department as they once were as my toddler is now a preschooler, but some aspects are still relevant.

Caffeine/Analgesics still seem to take priority over all.

Leftovers for breakfast and lunch still take precedent ... cold pizza for breakfast is fantastic!

Grains. We no longer honor the 5-second or even 1-second rule in our house for every dry foods like goldfish crackers ... topic for another post.

And yes, fantasy foods are rare and far between unless I concoct them.

Give-aways. I'm not sure about giving away that last spoonful of my Ben and Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch ice cream to someone else. Gotta draw the line somewhere!
