Health Tip: Eat Healthy
Use your plate as a blueprint
(HealthDay News) -- Using your meal plate as a blueprint of what to eat, you can make sure you're getting the right amount of nutritious foods.
The Harvard Medical School offers these guidelines for healthy eating:
- Make sure half of your plate is filled with fruits and vegetables.
- Designate one-fourth of your plate to include healthy whole grains, such as brown rice or whole wheat pasta.
- Fill the remaining one-fourth of your plate with a healthy protein, such as lean meat, skinless poultry, fish or beans.
