Are you still going off the old food guide pyramid from 1992 you learned in elementary school?
Here is the new guide based off the most current scientific research and not food politics.
Notice what's different?
-The grain section is hugely decreased and refined grains is replaced with whole grains.
-Where did dairy go? Did you know it was an optional food item and not essential for your health?
-Potatoes and french fries don't count as a vegetable this time!
-Red meat and processed meats are to me limited.
-Healthy oils and fats are not discouraged.
-Did you notice there's no category for dessert/juice/pop/fancy lattes? But water is essential!
-And remember that sunshine and activity is an important part of keeping well.
If you find food guides confusing, here's how you can't go wrong: only buy and eat whole food - nothing that has been processed or refined or made into something else.
