The Magical Plate: A Guide to Balanced Meals

The Magical Plate: A Guide to Balanced Meals

“What’s for dinner tonight?” can become a question you dread to answer each night when you first start trying to eat healthy and you’re not quite sure what to put on your plate.

I created this simple guide to eating a balanced meal that will make you excited to create your “Magical Plate” for each meal.

The Magical Plate consists of ⅓ green vegetables, ⅓ high quality protein, ⅓ nutrient dense starchy vegetable or grain, and 1-3 tbsp of high quality fat. This gives you an easy frame work to develop healthy, balanced meals each day that will give you energy and help stabilize your blood sugar. 

 

Important tips to remember when creating your magical plate:

Be Flexible: Allow the template to shift and change according to your body wisdom.

Animal Protein: If you choose animal protein, measure it with the palm of your hand.

Eat Until Satisfied: Take your time while eating and only eat until you are 80% full.
