iReporters take on 'MyPlate'

 

Last week, the U.S. Department of Agriculture replaced the food pyramid with a more user-friendly plate icon – nicknamed MyPlate – to help Americans make healthy food choices. Thanks to some inspiration from CNN’s Eatocracy, we invited you to design your ideal MyPlate.

 

The responses were creative, hilarious, mouth-watering and, well, not necessarily the healthiest. Peter Mazurczyk designated chocolate cake as his main dish; Mike Czarnopys offered up the “average American plate,” complete with McDonalds, soda and nachos; and Hannah Rogers ditched her plate entirely, opting for an IV bag filled with coffee instead.

 

Thankfully, iReporters also proposed some well-balanced meals, including Patrick Mahan, who suggested a vegetarian alternative to the USDA's recommendation. You can check out some of the best responses over on Eatocracy.
