The minister released a tentative outline of this new guide via Twitter this morning, before it was promptly taken down by the provincial government. Premier Brian Gallant issued an explanatory tweet stating that “Moosehead’s check [sic] hasn’t cleared yet.”
The Manatee’s team of tech-experts were able to retrieve the retracted information, along with Boudreau’s own illustrated “Food Pyramid,” which he meticulously hand-painted on the back of some governmental stationery. The full list of the Four New Brunswick Food Groups (with illustration), also known as the New Brunswick Food Guide, are here reproduced for your consideration.
1.Essentials Group: Jesus of Nazareth once said that “Man shall not live on bread alone” (Matthew 4:4). It is in this spirit that we encourage New Brunswickers to expand their diets beyond simple “food” items to include items such as smokes, cheap alcohol-based mouthwash, bottle-tokes and Lotto 649 tickets (because how else are you going to pay for all that stuff?).
2.The Tims Group: It is highly recommended that the average New Brunswicker consume at least two (2) items off of the Tim Hortons regular menu per day. In fact, it is more or less enforced by law.
3.Covered Bridge Storm Chips Group: The popular Covered Bridge brand “Storm Chips” ensure that you receive all four (4) essential flavours of potato.
4.The Bottle of Alpine Group [sponsored]: It was my father who taught me that this was the most vital of all the local food groups. He explained that it was to be ingested nightly, or else he swore to God he was going shoot the whole damn lot of us.
