White Foods

Catchy, blanket diet recommendations may be easy to remember, but miss  the mark on nutrition wisdom. “Don’t eat white foods” would mean you exclude foods such as cauliflower, onions, turnips, garlic, bananas, popcorn, chicken . . .

It also brings up the question: does that mean white inside or white outside?  Dinner rolls, cereal flakes?

If you are prone to using generalizations to run your life, make sure you take mental note of all the exceptions.
