Want to eat healthy? Turn to Harvard for help

We all want to learn how to eat more healthy foods. To help you achieve this goal, the folks at Harvard has come up with something called the Healthy Eating Plate.

According to Harvard “Use The Healthy Eating Plate as a guide for creating healthy, balanced meals—whether served on a plate or packed in a lunch box.”

The site also recommends you put a copy on your refrigerator as well.

In a nutshell, the plate gives you a visual idea of what portion of the plate should make up things like veggies, fruits, grains, and protein. Not surprisingly, 1/2 of your plate should contain fruits or vegetables.

There’s not much in the Healthy Plate that’s new. Think of it more as an easy guideline to follow for anyone who has trouble figuring out proper proportions for their meals.
