College Food Pyramid 

click to enlarge ff29_cover-18433.gif

The USDA's food pyramid always has haunted school cafeterias: a triangle of boring but healthy food choices that means well, but isn't always feasible. C'mon, where's the nacho block?

Mom's not always going to be there, cooking for your ass (in theory). So college students are left to their own devices, which usually include a microwave or a take-out number. To help, the Indy's crack team of dietitians (read: smartypants editors, intern and art designers) came up with a new food pyramid. It's much more realistic, entirely USDA-unapproved and satisfies all your cravings. Eat up!
