Food pyramids are boring.

Eat to beat the devil


I’ve never eaten to a food pyramid. Not even for a day. I don’t see the point when they seem to change with every generation. Someone somewhere decides a specific eating pattern is a good fit for the population and it gets broadcast.

I don’t like margarine. But I buy it because it’s supposedly be better for you than butter, but these days, some kinds of margarine are linked to heart attacks. Margarine and butter contain the same amount of fat. With the rules changing every 5 minutes and dependent on who you talk to, who and what can we trust?

I don’t eat KFC every day because I don’t feel good after 2 days of consecutive junk food. If I felt good, I would consider it.

We should eat food that tastes good and makes us feel good. If I didn’t enjoy what I ate and did it purely for the health benefits, when the rules change, I would be pissed off. I would be if I had been suffering through margarine all those years. Every time a food myth gets busted (or rewritten) a bunch of followers look like fools. Don’t be a fool!

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. I think a good rule of food is just to… Eat Food (per Michael Pollan). If you look at the ingredients at home, and you could make if yourself (but don’t necessarily have to), then it’s food. Do you have a jar of high fructose corn syrup sitting at home? A bottle of Red Dye #40? If not, then it’s probably not food. Because those were made in a lab. Margarine has become a big no-no here in the US. I don’t think there’s one real ingredient in it.

      That’s a good way to put it Cristina. I guess that’s one of the reasons why a home cooked is so satisfying. Not only do you know what goes into it, you know what stays out.
