Seriously, who wants to look at 50 greasy White Castle burgers oozing all over a dirty skillet? Apparently, we do.
It’s called a taco dog. A ballpark-sized sausage wrapped in a tortilla with some American cheese. Easy to hold and dip in ketchup. Strange? Yes. Healthy? That’s up for debate.
In an effort to revamp the food pyramid, the USDA create the color coded my plate focusing on four major food groups and detailing the amounts a person should have of each.
