A healthy plate has color, nutrient concentration and seasonal food items.
Experts recommend filling half of the plate with seasonal vegetables and fruits; One-fourth of the plate with whole grains and one-fourth of the protein-rich plate.
Although seasonal fruits do not grow vigorously and retain basic nutrients, whole grains such as whole wheat, barley, wheat berries, quinoa, oats, and brown rice have a mild effect on blood sugar and insulin. Proteins like meat, fish, beans, nuts increase metabolism, increase fat burning and help in weight loss.
