Think you’re eating healthy? There might be room for improvement. According to A Daily Dose of Fit, here are the essential elements for a perfectly balanced meal:
Eat your greens. Fill half of your plate with leafy greens and vegetables.
Go for grains. A quarter of your plate should be filled with whole grains, like brown rice or quinoa.
Pack your plate with protein. Fill up the rest of your plate with a cut of lean protein (like fish or white meat chicken).
Toss in some ‘good fats’ for good measure. Add some “good fat” (aka monounsaturated fat) by cooking your food in olive oil, sprinkling in some chopped nuts, or topping your plate with sliced avocado.
Now that you’re on a healthy kick, head to theworkoutgirl.com for workouts you can do anywhere.
