Rabbit Food Pyramid

I just thought I'd share this site: Rabbit Food For My Bunny Teeth. It's a health/fitness/food blog, and the girl who runs it has what she calls a "rabbit food pyramid" aimed at vegetarians but adaptable to any eating style.
She post recipes and fitness inspiration and tips and suchlike.

The pyramid is really helpful, although none of my meals so far have had all the parts. I resist complicated meals, although the components of the meal might take me two hours to prepare. Lentil loaf, for instance, has produce, protein, and plant-based fat (almonds), but no whole grains. And I'm oddly resistant to the idea of eating grains with it. I guess it could be made with whole grain breadcrumbs. Still.
However, in spite of my vague resistance to the pyramid, it makes me think about what I'm eating. Is there plant-based fat in this? How many servings of produce have I had today? Ooh, whole grains sound good; how can I incorporate them into my day?
On that note, here's a site that has the US Department of Agriculture guidelines for serving sizes.

I propose that we all try to think about what we eat. That is all.
