    Definitely protein!  I get lots of fruit, veggies, grains and dairy for breakfast and lunch, but usually not protein, so if I don’t have it at dinner I usually don’t have it at all.

    Vegetables. I really only like carrots and celery and I get sick of them pretty quickly.

    @Sea_Ashley:  Veggies.  I do great with everything else.  I just need to figure out how to get more in.

    I honestly just don’t normally eat that much food in general in a normal day. But I definitely get in dairy!

    Right now…veggies (I’m pregnant, do. not. want.). I will put them in or on top of things (spinach-cheese stuffed shells, mushrooms on my burger, etc) but I still don’t want them in my smoothies (something I normally did all the time) or on their own.  I’m doing better but not great.

    Normally…dairy. Definitely not the case at the moment though, I get lots. 

    I don’t normally eat that much meat but I tend to eat some fish, eggs on the weekend, and tons and tons of beans so I think I’m ok on protein.

    funny to think of it broken down like this.

    I see potential food items as more like proteins, carbs and sugars, fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and chemicals/misc. contaminants (non-food fillers, heavy metals, radioactivity, etc) and what processing the food item has undergone and what this has done to change it (oxidated it, etc.)

    I never, ever ever worry, for example, about getting a “minimum amount of dairy” in my diet… I am not a baby cow…and anyway, my dairy is all pasturized, so it’s not even something a baby cow would eat. I’m guilty of eating plenty of cheese, but it’s NOT because I’m trying to get my “daily dairy intake” lol

    Anyway, if I don’t watch myself, I’ll overdo it on carbs/simple sugars. And feel like crap the next day. I usually can prevent this by making a concerted effort to eat more protein and fat.

    @joya_aspera:  I agree somewhat.  I think OP is going off of the food pyramid, in which case it should actually be GRAINS and not carbs listed.  Carbs are in other things besides breads, pastas, grains, etc.  Like FRUIT!

    I also think about how much fiber I am getting, sugar, processed vs. whole foods.  I tend to be concerned with making sure I get enough vitamins from a variety of whole foods and don’t pay attention to the food pyramid.  I never have been concerned with not getting enough dairy!  Calcium sure, dairy no.

    Dairy. I take calcium pills to try and make up for it.

    Usually I go too light on protein, or over-do it. No happy medium!

    And I WORK to make sure I get all my veggies.

    @Sea_Ashley:  What’s the reference?  Canada’s food guide is different.

    I actually find the categories to be a bit odd.  Milk, fruit, veggies, etc. have carbs and protein.  How do you separate the fruits and vegetables?  Is it by what is commonly thought of a fruit, or a fruit based on the botany definition?

    @Sea_Ashley:  anything that doesn’t fall under the “funyuns, beer & candy” group. :/
