What does a completely balanced plate of food actually look like? According to A Daily Dose of Fit, here is how the perfect dinner plate should be composed:
Step 1: Fill up half of your plate with leafy greens or veggies.
Step 2: Fill one quarter of your plate with whole grains and/or beans, such as brown rice, quinoa, or lentils.
Step 3: Fill one quarter of your plate with a lean protein, like fish, white meat chicken or turkey, or tempeh.
Step 4: Accent your plate with “good fat” foods, which are foods that have monounsaturated fats. These include avocados, extra virgin olive oil, or nuts.
Now that you’ve replenished your body with a perfectly balanced meal, head to The Workout Girl to continue to treat your body right with a great workout.
