  • Cool - Though it seems like common sense...but it IS nice to have it in a simple list.

    Some of these things are novel to me so I can give them a try to see if I like them.

    although this is mostly a no-brainer I appreciate having the list for shopping Way to go sparks! - 11/13/2010 7:25:32 PM
  • I ate asparagus last month for the first time since I was a little girl and loved it. I will try it on Tuesday in my spaghetti and wait for my son to eat it. I will spring it on him when he gets to the bottom of the bowl. If you didn't like certain vegetables as a kid, I would encourage you to try it again because like most things even our taste buds mature. - 11/13/2010 5:02:35 PM

    When I printed the "list" I got the article too. So I have a two page mismatched mess to hang on my fridge! Way to go. - 11/13/2010 11:35:48 AM
  • This is great. All that information in one place.I have printed the list and it's going into my purse! - 11/13/2010 11:22:18 AM
  • A GREAT "cheat sheet" to place on the fridge! Very reassuring to see that these items are on my Spark Nutrition Meal Planner. - 11/13/2010 8:53:52 AM
  • Runnermamma1...... Not everyone knows what foods belong to what groups. Not everyone has "the slightest clue about healthy eating". Some children are reared not knowing what a fruit is let alone what healthy eating is. The nearest some get to a strawberry is the flavour in the chewy sweet they are eating. You are lucky, you obviously have more than an idea of what is healthy eating, but, the disparaging remarks you make about the author, I felt were less than charitable.
    The list is there for the benefit of those who are in need of help. And, surely that is us all to some degree.
    Don't know about where you live, but usually, if you buy food that is locally sourced and in season, it is much less expensive than buying food out of season and therefore imported from all around the world. It is also much better for the body because the body takes nutrients best from from foods that are whole and grown nearest to where the body is physically living.
    Personally, I think the list is excellent, clear cut, and for anyone at all unsure about the varying groups of foods and what foods are in what groups, this list is spot on. As a result of it, hopefully, it will help many hundreds along the way, especially young mothers against the onslaught of marketing madness in every aisle in the supermarket Well done the author, I say. And thank you very much. xxx - 11/13/2010 8:35:42 AM
  • This list is great! I use it as a shopping list because I have a tendency to eat the same foods over and over again. This list reminds me that there is variety out there so you eat right but not get bored doing it. I am 17 lbs. away from my goal weight. When I'm done and in maintainance, I will have lost 112 lbs!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!! - 11/13/2010 8:05:46 AM

    While this is common sense - I'm putting this on my fridge as a reminder to try and get as many of these in as I can throughout each week. - 11/13/2010 8:02:07 AM
  • When I go shopping I really try hard to go with the list and look carefully at labels...I don't necessarily deny myself the sweets but I really limit it. - 11/13/2010 7:45:23 AM
  • Just another confirmation to eat healthy. . . try new fruits and veggies to get all the nutrients possible. - 11/13/2010 7:06:16 AM
  • This list is ridiculous. You could have just written- eat all fruits, vegetables and lean meats and seed/nut sources of protein. Iím glad it helped some, but, honestly, if you have the slightest clue about healthy eating, this list is a declaration from the master of the obvious filesÖ And affordable?? How are good fresh fruits and vegetables affordable when not in season or donít ever grow in your area? - 11/13/2010 6:53:32 AM
  • Printed it off to keep handy for a reference chart. - 10/30/2010 12:08:51 PM
  • This could be more helpful by having more categories; for example, which foods rank highest by nutrient, etc. This huge list is just a bit difficult to digest. - 10/15/2010 1:05:43 AM
  • Terrific list...full of good things! I'm going to continue to try new foods and work more of these into our diets. Yesterday I fooled husband and teens with whole-grain pancakes...they didn't even notice the difference! - 10/14/2010 3:02:13 PM
