National Nutrition Month: Tip #3

I’ve said it once, I will say it again. Make 1/2 your plate fruits and vegetables, 1/4 whole grain and 1/4 lean protein. I can’t say it enough. Make sure to balance your meals and eat consistently. You will feel so much more satisfied!

So if your plate should look this way, then your shopping cart should as well! Make sure half of your cart is filled with fruits and vegetables, while whole grains and lean proteins make up the rest. Make your environment work for you!
