Deciding what to put on your plate at meal time can be hard. You want to eat healthy, but you also want to feel satisfied. The good news is that you don’t have to figure out nutritional value versus calories on your own.
Forget the old Food Pyramid. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has a new online tool called MyPlate. It can help you and your family make smarter choices in a fun, engaging way. Check out how MyPlate can make mealtime easier at myplate.gov.
Be sure when filling your plate, you are choosing from organic and preferably local produce and proteins to get the best nutritional support for your body. Whole foods as close as they come from the source are always your best bet!
