How to Create a Healthy Plate

How to Create a Healthy Plate


What can you make your family for dinner. That's healthy and tastes good. You can follow the plate method. This healthy eating plan works for everybody including people with diabetes. Indeed making nutritious healthy meals will be a snap. 
What's a healthy plate. It's a way to control your serving sizes where you don't have to count. Simply use a seven inch plate for children and a nine inch plate for adults. First divide the plate in half and fill one of them with vegetables. There are two types of vegetables starchy like potatoes corn peas or plantains and non starchy like zucchini Hickam cucumbers carrots or salad. If you have diabetes fill half your plate with non starchy vegetables then fill one quarter with whole grains or starches like brown rice corn beans or whole wheat pasta in the other quarter. Add some lean protein like tofu grilled fish or chicken. 

What about adding a side of tortilla or bread that's hard to resist. I know that the trick is serve yourself a smaller portion of the other starches on your plate instead to complete your meal. I had a drink like unsweetened coffee tea or a glass of milk. But remember that drinking eight ounces of milk affects your blood sugar just as it would if you eat another tortilla or a slice of bread or you can also choose water with a squeeze of lemon or lime. How you create your plate is up to you. 

You have many options. As long as you remember to follow these healthy guidelines and. You're all set. You might be thinking How can you use the plate method to make vegetable beef soup or other meals. Simply follow the same idea fill your pot with low sodium broth and lots of healthy vegetables like corn cabbage zucchini carrots and onions and some lean beef but not too much just like you'd put on a quarter of your plate for each person your serving. If you want add your favorite type of bread on the side and you've got the right amount for a healthy meal. Enjoy.
