I learned two really amazing nutrition lessons from my mom:
1) Eat the rainbow
2) Enjoy anything in moderation
Also, never scrimp on toilet paper, but that is a side bar :)
These are lessons that I learned years ago that have really stuck and continue to influence my current eating habits. Do you follow those guidelines or is your plate all brown?
