A diet of high-quality protein from meat, poultry, eggs and fish, as well as healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocado and olive oil, in combination with loads of low-starch vegetables and some low-GI whole grains such as legumes and sweet potato, with minimal processed foods, is an example of a healthy diet.
Having the right balance of nutrients plays a vital role in a person’s overall health, including supporting immunity, preventing diseases and providing the body with adequate energy for daily tasks. Remember to listen to your body and choose foods that make you feel good on the inside and out!
Example Day on a Plate:
Breakfast: Oats, made with milk
