I wasn’t really thinking about the new “My Plate” icon when it was unveiled last week by the United States Department of Agriculture. I was driving through the plains of Colorado and Wyoming on my way to visit family in western Nebraska.

Corn makes whiskey. Whiskey makes my baby frisky …”

“MyPlate is an uncomplicated symbol to help remind people to think about their food choices in order to lead healthier lifestyles,” Secretary Vilsack urged the nation. It shows a dinner plate half full of fruit and vegetables paired with lean protein foods, whole grains and low fat dairy foods.
