Your Guide To Your Healthy Eating

Harvard School of Public Health Nutrition Source is to provide a timely information on diet and nutrition for health professionals and the public so that we can learn more the benefit of eating healthy in our daily life.
Healthy Eating Plate was created by nutrition experts at Harvard School of Public Health to educate us how to have a blue print for planning our well-balanced meals.

In your Healthy Eating Plate, first, you have to fill half of your plate with vegetables and fruits. Go for more color and variety in this portion of plate. Second, A quarter of your plate is for full grains such as whole wheat, brown rice, whole-wheat pasta because they are less processed.

Next is put a healthy source of protein in the last quarter of your plate such as fish, chicken, beans or nuts. You can have an egg a day but limit your red meat and processed meats.

Followed by good plant based vegetable oils like olive, canola, soy, corn, sunflower, peanut, etc. The glass bottle signifies the healthy oil you need.
 
Then completing your healthy plate in your meal in a glass of water or a cup of coffee or tea with a little or no sugar is best. Limit your milk and other dairy products to one or two servings per day and also limit your juice or soda to a small glass per day.

Lastly, stay active is one of the secrets to control weight gain.
You can use this Harvard Healthy Eating Plate guide side by side together with the Healthy Eating Phyramid for you to be guided in your healthy diet.
