170: Food Pyzzamid

June 23, 2013

Remember the Food Pyramid?
Since the bottom edge of the pyramid is bread and grains, an interesting idea occurred to me recently.

A triangle with bread at the bottom is basically just a slice of pizza. So, I made a few slight modifications to the layout, and came up with this:


The base is bread and grains. That’s easy. Pizza crust.

The next level is fruits and vegetables, and since everybody likes to argue about the tomato, I figured it could be considered both a fruit and a vegetable for our purposes. Tomato Sauce.

What’s a pizza without cheese? Crap; that’s what. Cheese is dairy.
I moved the meat category above the dairy, so I could just put a ring of pepperonis down and not have to worry about putting them on the left or right of each slice.

Everybody knows that the best part of the pizza slice is the tip, and this model does not disappoint. Candy at the tip.

So, there you go. When properly made, the shape of the pizza slice ensures correct serving proportions. Never worry about food again.

See you next week.

    This just proves the point I have been making for years that pizza is a healthy breakfast choice! Grains, dairy, protein, fruit and vegetables. The same also applies for pavlova (a good old aussie breakfast staple) – its a sweet egg white omelette with dairy and fruit!
