Nutrition for dummies

It seems like every day there is another report, another recommendation about nutrition, another fad diet. I've long said that you are better off following what they told you in grade school about the 4 food groups. Well, Jae has been doing a lot of work planning menus, and here is what she has come up. For a meal, take your plate, divide it in half, and then divide one of those halves into 4ths. Fill the half with vegetables, one 4th with protein (meat or beans), one 4th with grain. Repeat consistently. I'm sure its not the perfect diet, but I wager it is considerably more balanced than the majority of Americans achieve.
