Food Pyramid

I am so happy to see all of the cupcake shops that have opened their doors in Atlanta. It seems like all of the sudden there is a Gigi's Cupcakes or a Camicake store on every corner. And, believe me, I'm not complaining. I'm just observant. And, when I see the American Express commercial and the lady is talking about how she opened her store to sell nothing less than wine and cupcakes, I have one of those why-didn't-I-think-of-that moments.

Since I'm just now learning that cow's milk isn't all that it's cracked up to be and actually isn't even all that healthy for you, I'm re-thinking my own, personal food pyramid. The Food Pyramid is sponsored by the Dairy Association so I am going to go out on a limb here and suggest that a group like that might have some personal interest in getting you and me to drink more cow's milk. It's something to think about. That's why they have dairy (or milk) as one of the food groups. Duhhh.

I'm not suggesting that everyone lives and breathes the details of this Egyptian food guide but I am suggesting that there might be a place for cupcakes on the pyramid. I mean, seriously. I need to find a way to start the Cupcake Coalition. And then we would come up with our own food pyramid and go head to head - or utter to utter - with this group to earn our place. Instead of a pyramid we could make it in the shape of a cupcake. Pyramids are so 20th century. we're talking...
