Dividing your plate into sections to make sure you choose healthy foods and use proper portions is the key to managing your diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure, and your diet.
Dividing Your Plate
According to the American Diabetes Association, a good way to plan your meals is by dividing your plate into 3 sections.
Use an imaginary line and cut your plate in half. Divide one of the halves into two to create the three different zones.
- The large section is for fruit, fresh if possible.
- Whole grain cereals or whole grain toast go into one of the smaller sections.
- Eggs, Greek yogurt, or lean breakfast meats go into the other small section.
For Lunch and Dinner
- The large section is for non-starchy vegetables like carrots, spinach, broccoli, and green beans.
- Starchy foods such as whole-grain bread, rice, or potatoes go into one of the smaller sections.
- Lean meat or meat substitutes go into the other small section.
Keeping portions in mind when managing your diet can have a significant effect on your health.
