Perfect plate

Consider the plate method when preparing meals

Choose a medium-sized plate (about the size of a Frisbee) to help you keep your portions healthy. If you have a large plate, fill only the middle of the plate. Divide your plate into three sections. Make half of your plate vegetables. The other half of your plate can be split into two sections: one quarter for grain products such as rice or whole wheat pasta: and the other quarter for meat and alternatives such as fish, chicken, beans or lentils. Top off the meal with a glass of low-fat milk (2% or less) and a piece of fruit. Include more than one vegetable to increase your intake of vitamins and minerals.
