VEGANS - Have Your Say at the USDA 2010 FOOD PYRAMID

The USDA CENTER FOR NUTRITION POLICY AND PROMOTION is in the process of gathering information and opinions from individuals and those in the health care profession in efforts to revise and improve the 2010 DIETARY GUIDELINE PYRAMID. http://www.cnpp.usda.gov/dietaryguidelines.htm Comments are open to the public. PCRM, The McDougall Program, and The American Vegan Society have left their recommendations. You do not have to log in to post a comment - spell check is provided... Vegans are concerned that food policies in the U.S. don't reflect sound judgement or promote healthy eating habits. Parents wish they had more input on what is served in school lunches. Well here's our chance to have our say. Who would not like to see this as the new USDA food pyramid in 2010? More about the Vegan Food Pyramid

Hi Klem... I was gonna ask how the veggie thing was going - but didn't want to put you on the spot... Sounds like it's working for you! Cool!

And how's the juggling going? Need to drop in and see some of your recent photos!

Happy to you too! :)

Yeh it's been about 6 or so weeks meet free now. I think I started on the last day of November? It really has opened up a whole new world of foods and taste to me. And more importantly I feel a lot healthier too. I probably couldn't have done it without your imput, your blog posts and all those handy links on the right --->

Thanks for the comments on my blog too! :)

Hi Klem! Yes, you might as well say "almost" 2 months! And now that your pretty convinced you can eat well and be healthy... the rest just gets easier.

You're quite the guy - juggler, photographer, comedian/wit and veggie too!

Ever so glad our paths crossed. :)
