A simple technique to improve your diet is to follow the half plate vegetable (non starchy) rule. If you can’t get a half plate of veggies, then at least include some fruit on half of the plate.
This is my number one recommendation to all of my patients. It’s easy to remember and easy to do once you start implementing it!
This plate rule helps to keep you full and satisfied with fiber and meal balance. It helps to make sure you get the vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that you need. And keeps the calories in check!
Easy side dish: Add asparagus and mushrooms to saute pan with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add seasonings, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Then, add a splash of white wine. Reduce the liquids, and you are done!
