Food Groups

Yesterday I was covering for the receptionist and so got the chance to spend an hour beside the candy drawer. While I was able to resist having any myself, I was witness to the fall from dietary grace of many others. One fella even said, with his hand in the chocolate bag, “Ooh. Lunch!”

Which got me thinking.

Actually, when you really think about it, we have the major food groups represented in that drawer. Here’s the breakdown:

Protein: Mr. Goodbar, Snickers, peanut M&Ms;

Dairy: MILK Chocolate

Grains: Krackle

Veg: Peppermint Patties (Hey, Mint is a plant!)

Fruit- Jolly Ranchers

See? It’s not so bad. At least they’re eating balanced meals.
