MTM - Food Pyramid & Nutrition (plus a GIVEAWAY!!)

For this week's Muffin Tin Monday the appointed theme from the Muffin Tin Mom was "food pyramid/nutrition".

I thought it was an interesting theme choice since the regular old food pyramid so many of us grew up with seems to have undergone so many face-lifts and transformations over recent years. The question of whether the pyramid should even continue to be used as a guide for healthy eating is an oft debated one. Still, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to craft my own actual food pyramid. Just for old times sake.

MTM - food pyramid

My muffin tin meal contains:
- orange slices and grapes
- food pyramid
- turkey bologna roll-up (cut in half) and a light Babybel cheese round
- peas
- strawberries
- carrots

The food pyramid was fun to make! :)
Wheat Thin pyramid

It's made of Wheat Thin crackers and cream cheese, constructed just like a little house of cards. I scored a lot of "cool mom points" with Ethan on this one! ;-)  "It's kind of like a gingerbread house, but without the candy. And it's cooler."  That is some fantastic praise from the mouth of an architect-wannabe 8 year old!

And now for the GIVEAWAY!!!
Are you curious what it could possibly be? It's very related to the theme of this MTM!

See ya there! :)

I love this, especially the wheat thin pyramid! Great job. I'm headed to the store now so may need to make up one of our own today! I am hit or miss on participating but this one is totally doable.

So, I thought of you...this site has a link to another site that has Goodbyn's for sale - $15 - unless what she says is true - that you get a $25 credit for signing up, then they are free. No this is not spam - I really do read your blog and love your posts. Anyway, check it out.
