Everything you eat and drink matters. The right mix can help you be healthier now and into the future. The USDA developed MyPlate to illustrate the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet—fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and dairy.
Macaroni/ˌmækəˈroʊni/ is a variety of dry pasta in the shape of narrow tubes originating from Italy and made with durum wheat, usually without egg. It is normally cut in short lengths; if cut in lengths with a curve it is sometimes called elbow macaroni. Some home machines can make macaroni shapes but, like most pasta, macaroni is usually made commercially by large-scale extrusion. The curved shape is caused by different speeds on opposite sides of the pasta tube as it comes out of the machine.
