Gone are the days of the food pyramid just because it was designed to suite the economic preference.
So, say NO to it!
These days it's called 'My Plate' whereby there is an even distribution on all basic types of food.
Dairy is considered separate so you're more than welcome to have an ice cream after a meal! Haha, or perhaps milk and cookie :P
If you need or keen to know recipe ideas, or want to cook on a budget, head on to myplate for more info.
By the way, this is just a guideline and it works for me. Give it a shot to see if it satisfies the cravings as our body tends to know what is missed out but our brains just can't process it some times.
