Although we don’t always have the time to measure out exactly the amount of chicken nor to look up how much rice or broccoli is in a serving, we can still focus on healthy food consumption. And as long as we’re consuming proper portions of fruits and vegetables alongside lean proteins, whole grains and low-fat dairy, then we’re good.
A balanced nutrition should consist of a higher ratio of vegetables (40 percent) to fruits ( 10 percent ), of approximately 30 percent grains, and 20 percent protein, accompanied by a smaller circle representing dairy, such as water, a glass of milk or a yogurt cup, as well as exercize.
Your Haelthy Plate should be supplemented with additional recommendations, such as switching to 1% or skim milk, making at least half your grains whole, diversifying your protein food choices, and focusing on portion control as well as reducing your sodium and sugar intakes, while still enjoying great food.
