How many fruit servings should you eat per day? 2? 3? 5? Let’s consult the food pyramid.
But do we still use the pyramid? I thought we were using a circle because it looks like a plate. What if all my plates are triangle shaped? Does that mean I’m a nonconformist or behind-the-times because I’m using plates that look like pyramids?
Anyways, I think I eat enough fruit.
- Fruit-filled Pop-Tarts
- Blueberry muffins
- Peanut butter and jelly (strawberry or raspberry) sandwiches
- Strawberry Frosted MiniWheats
- Orange or cherry popsicles
- Oatmeal raisin granola bars
- Fruit By the Foot.*
Recently, I found a new way to incorporate even more fruit into my diet.
Milk chocolate with cherries, dark chocolate with blueberries and lavendar,** dark chocolate and blueberries, and white chocolate and strawberries.***
Chocolate and fruit. Together. Living in harmony. And living in my tummy.
Also, you’ll notice that I don’t discriminate against chocolate. White, milk, and dark—I love it all.
*For those of you going into shock, every day I eat at least 3 real fruits.
**I’m worried that the dark chocolate, blueberry, and lavendar bar may be a horrible, horrible mistake. But does lavendar count as a vegetable serving?
***This weekend I made a smore with the white chocolate and strawberries. Let’s just say I’ll definitely be having smore.
