Have you seen the new MyPlate visual? It was released last year. As a broad community based message, I like it. It emphasizes that most of our plate should come from fruits and vegetables. These should be the focus of our meal, not the afterthought. A quarter of the plate should come from whole grains, and the other quarter from lean proteins, as well as a group on the side that emphasizes a serving of dairy.
Regardless, I think most of us could take some advice from MyPlate. Maybe you need more fruits and veggies on your plate, or maybe you’ve been skimping on some calcium-rich dairy. The MyPlate website also has some great tips and tools that I’ve found useful, and I bet you will too.
So share with me today – what’s on your plate? Comment on our blog post, post pictures to our facebook page, or share with Inspired Wellness on Twitter!
