Thoughts :

When I googled “4” food group charts , one of the links was” whatever happened to the 4 food groups”  ,  I had to laugh .

No, there’s not 3 , 5 or 7 food groups but “4”  .  Keep it simple, as Einstein said .

It’s funny , when was the last time you heard the old saying ” to ensure you get all 6 essential nutrients eat from all “4 “food groups” . Well ,  one of the points made on the food group site was ,” to ensure you get all 6 essential nutrient’s eat from all” 4″ food groups”. That goes against what you hear today .  Being told whole dairy and even whole grains are bad for one’s health , as well as any kind of meats whether animal , sea creatures , or fowl  [ vegan]  .

                                                   [ Basic Vitamins in each group ]

1] Grains –  Mostly B and E
2] Whole Dairy – A, B, D
3] Fruit/ veg –  A and C
4] Meats [ which includes nuts, poultry ] – A, B, some E.

Key point :

Just listen to your body always keeping these 4 food groups in mind which group is your body more or less craving .  When you are deficient in a vitamin your body will crave foods that contain that vitamin. Think about it .
