Food pyramid

The USDA recently revised their food pyramid. The good news: you're supposed to have plant oils at most meals. So now I can fry to my heart's content and use olive oil indiscriminately.

The bad news: white rice (and white bread and pasta) have been bumped to the top, meaning "use sparingly." Instead, you're supposed to eat lots of whole grains. This is going to be really hard. Goodbye Calrose and french bread, hello brown rice and wheat bread and oatmeal! Bleah.
