Planning a Healthy Plate

Here is a simple image I like to give to clients to teach them how to plan a healthy meal.

The foods here are only examples, not meant to show how much of each to eat at one time. [1]

The basic rules are:

  1. Have at least 1/2 your meal filled with Vegetables
  2. Divide the remaining half as:
    • 1/4 for protein-rich foods
    • 1/4 for energy-dense foods

Simple eh? Eat like this and you’ll sure to turn pink (of health) and lose any spare tires 😉

In future posts, I will go into detail about food choices to fill these plate portions.

Love, Peace & Healing
