“‘The Food 20/20 Plan’ uses colors, shapes, and line types to describe the relationships among elements of the plan. The dashed lines present non-food aspects of eating. Appreciation is emphasized with two dashed lines because of its important effects on health.
The food groups decrease in size to indicate the amounts to be eaten. The foods in the green group–vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes–are meant to be eaten as the main elements of a healthful diet. The other food groups are meant to be eaten in smaller amounts…The foods in the yellow group–eggs, meat, dairy, and seafood–appear with a dashed gray line because of ethical and sustainability concerns.”
This diagram replaces food pyramids and other graphic nutrition guides. It focuses on the foods to be eaten and the atmosphere in which to eat them. Tangible and intangible aspects of eating are important for good health and well-being.
The Food 20/20 Plan helps us see food and the eating process with 20/20 vision. The 20/20 vision can help us see clearly and with focus. It is now available in Kindle and paperback versions. Click here to order.
