  •  Brown and green are the two food groups (3+ / 0-)

    According to a friend of my wife, food can be divided into a green group composed of broccoli, celery, lima beans, Brussels sprouts and so on, versus a brown food group including toast, coffee, steak, and chocolate.

    •  Compost, too. (0+ / 0-)

      Browns are carbon-rich things, like paper and cardboard and wood and stuff like that.

      Greens are nitrogen-rich things, like grass clippings and pulled weeds and whatnot.

      Both are required to make a good, non-smelly compost pile, about 20 units of brown to 1 of green.

    •  So beer and oreos would be brown ? (0+ / 0-)

      Sorry, my ex was into that combination. I never got into it (blecch) but the kids eventually got into 'Dad's food groups'.
