It’s easy to balance great taste and solid nutrition with the food wheel. The four elements of eating are represented on the pie chart, with fruits, veggies, grains, and protein all included.
One-quarter of the typical plate should come from grains, and whole grains are the best type of grains. Consider whole-wheat pasta, whole grain bread, and brown rice to fill an important spot on the plate alongside the colorful vegetables.
Many restaurants now cater directly to plant-based eaters. From excellent dining in Las Vegas to healthy fast food options, food businesses are discovering the benefits of serving plant-strong menus. Abundant scientific studies show the health benefits of cutting meat from the diet. Options available today range from meatless main dishes to cheeses made from nut milks that bring the savory flavor of cheese to a veggie diet without the fat and cholesterol.
Vegetables are a natural part of a healthy diet. Not only do they add color, crunch, flavor and visual appeal to a plate, but they are also packed with nutrients like vitamin D, calcium, potassium, fiber, minerals, and all the stuff a body needs to thrive. Get simple servings of fruit from 100 percent juice or enjoy the crunch of fresh apple or pear slices and benefit from the natural sweetness that is as good for you as it is great tasting.
