I'm not about making New Year's Resolutions unless they can apply for every day life.
Q: What belongs on my plate for it to be a "well balanced" meal EVERY TIME? Let's break down what that means.
A: Re-solution: Finding another solution to your problem.
To have a "well balanced" meal EVERY TIME, here's my tip for breaking down what your plate should have in the new year. Look at a typical place setting in terms of "pie pieces."
1/2 your plate should be Veggies
1/4 plate of Protein (meat or plant)
1/4 plate of seeds, nuts and/or grains
1 Tablespoon of a healthy fat (I chose olives)
1-2 oz of low fat dairy or calcium rich food
