Hi folks, I’m Kevin, Tango’s friend. I’ll be dropping by from time to time to post things about food and maybe some other neat stuff too. Pleased to make your acquaintance.
I’m by no means a fan of the “food pyramid“, as designed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but it does it get some things right. American’s as a whole should eat more fruits and vegetables. But how much is enough? Food blog CHOW‘s visual guide illustrates the varied forms a cup of fruits or vegetables can take. Be sure to take this chart with a grain of salt, though (literally, if you’d like). A cup of celery isn’t nutritionally the same as a cup of grapes, even if they occupy the same space in your stomach.
