Is wine considered to be a member of a food group–you know, fruit?
Are fries more than just a greasy, salty starch? Could they be viewed as, say, a vegetable?
If both of the above constitute the bulk of one’s daily intake, and on Tuesday one gorges out on heaping bowls of salad, can that salad count toward the rest of the week’s vegetable allotment?
And will the answers to these questions allow me to answer this daily question from guests: “How do you stay so thin working in a restaurant like this?”
To which I can reply, “I stick to fruits and veggies.”
