Balanced plate of healthy food

What’s a balanced plate?

Do you know what a balanced plate looks like? My general rule of thumb is:

  • 1/2 plate – a variety of vegetables (cooked or raw)
  • 1/4 plate – quality protein, e.g. fish, kangaroo, grass fed beef or lamb, chicken, beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, eggs, nuts, seeds
  • 1/4 plate – quality wholefood carbohydrates, e.g. brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, whole grain cous cous, millet, sweet potato, pumpkin, squash, oats

Eating in this way helps ensure you are giving your body enough vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, as well as a good balance of protein / fat / carbs.
