Healthy Recipes

When choosing a healthy meal, we look to see how a recipe compares to MyPlate. MyPlate is the current nutrition guide published by the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, a food circle depicting a place setting with a plate and glass divided into five food groups; fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy. 


MyPlate encourages us to make half our plate fruits and vegetables, at least half of our grains whole grains, choose leaner proteins, and low-fat dairy. When making a snack, aim for at least two food groups. When preparing a meal, try to include at least three of the food groups. Foods from different groups not only provide a variety of nutrients that our bodies need to stay healthy, but help keep us full and satisfied longer, reducing the need to snack throughout the day.
