Nutri-plate

Tip #2 – Portion Control

I love this plate! It is a great visual to think upon as you fill a plate for lunch or dinner. Remember that your proteins should be lean (fish, chicken breast, turkey breast, organic lean beef), your grains are to be whole (brown rice, quinoa, farro, beans/legumes, or whole wheat items), and your veggies are to be lightly dressed in healthy, seasoned oils. If you are wanting to add fruit to this plate, I would replace or decrease the whole grains since these two groups (grains and fruit) are both good sources of carbohydrates.
