HOW TO BALANCE YOUR PLATE FOR HEALTH

A healthy balanced plate should look something like this

1/4 plate – protein source, the best quality you can afford – ideally organic chicken, wild-caught fish, grass-fed meats. If you are vegetarian lentils, beans and pulses

1/2 plate – non-starchy vegetables – including green leafy vegetables šŸ„¬ or salads.

1/8 plate – starchy veg, fruits or whole grains – sweet potato, quinoa, rice, beetroot

1/8 plate – healthy fats avocado, nuts, seeds, olives, cheese. Or this can be the oils that you cook with such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, organic ghee or grass-fed butter

Keep it colourful and varied to get all your essential nutrients

Eat as many whole foods rather than packaged foods and foods with long lists of ingredients, that you can manage. That’s homecooked meals with plenty of veggies

Choose organic foods wherever possible
