Ellyn Satter’s Reaction to My Plate

While many health professionals consider the new MyPlate the best invention since sliced bread, I disagree. A few weeks ago I voiced my concerns with MyPlate: it discounts mindful eating as a health promoting tool and backhandedly shames the vital satisfaction component of normal healthy eating.


This evening I received an email newsletter from Ellyn Satter in which outlined her official stance on MyPlate. And, now I have found someone who enjoys eating her meals (with butter even!) and has permission to eat as much as she needs.


Oh, Ellyn Satter, I would love to dish on this with you over a meal!
