    My wife and I were discussing nutrition earlier today. We are trying to eat healthier and are basing our diet on the food pyramid. I am trying to eat better. We eat cereals and grains. I have reduced my meat intake and have switched more towards fish. My wife brought up my dislike of vegetables. She said I really need to increase my fruit and vegetable intake. I argued, but she says I am wrong. What do you think?

    This is my thinking

    Red = Raspberry
    Pink = Strawberries
    Yellow = Corn
    Green = Broccoli
    Blue = Blueberries
    Orange = Oranges
    Purple = Blackberries

    So if I eat 11 servings of Lucky Charms I will get 11 servings of grains and should put a huge dent in the number of servings of fruits and vegetables I need to eat.

    She says the color of the marshmallows do not mean they are the equivalent to a fruit or vegetable.

    Which of us is right? Me saying I get my daily requirements by eating different colored marshmallows or Her saying I need to eat real fruits and vegetables.

    I have $5 on this need your input.
