This is what we should have been following all of our lives. As children we should have learned to follow this pyramid rather than the disease-promoting food pyramid we were deceived into following by the USDA. This pyramid suggest that we eat abundant amounts of leafy greens and fruits. We should moderate our intake of protein-dominant foods, and they should be sourced only from live food choices like dark greens and also sprouts, seeds, and nuts. We should understand that all fruits, and all vegetables contain the amino acids our bodies use to build protein, and that there is no need to consume problematic animal protein that induces disease. All of the medicinal foods such as wheat grass and seaweed should be eaten sparingly when needed.
By observing this pyramid, you will see that the unnecessary grains and animal products are not included. By following this chart, we can be assured we will ingest the nutrients our bodies need for experiencing optimal levels of health.
The food pyramid that was created by the USDA (from usda.gov) which we have been manipulated into following since elementary school, is misleading and can infuse our bodies with common degenerative and chronic diseases. If you compare the two charts, you will notice that the real food pyramid advises the consumption of healthful, lively foods and the USDA food pyramid is full of dead foods. By following this “dead food” pyramid, we are basically inviting sickness, diseases, and premature death. You notice that it suggests breads, starches, and cereals in the most abundant amount without clarifying which of the grains and other starches are healthful, and which, like gluten grains and bleached grains, are unhealthful. Making your diet consist so abundantly of these food choices is bad advice, and can trigger health problems. The chart also suggest that meats, dairy, and eggs, which are the leading inducers of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, and certain types of cancer, including colon and breast cancer, to be heavily present in the diet.
