Use the new plate method from the United States Department of Agriculture for easy meal planning. Fill half the plate with vegetables and fruit, and the rest with one lean protein source such as beans, fish, lean meat, poultry or soy, and one grain serving, aiming for whole-grain options at least half the time. Instead of sugary drinks, wash the meal down with water or fat-free or low-fat milk. Choosing these foods helps your body get the nutrients it needs to thrive.
