At every meal, you should strike a healthy balance of foods by planning your plate into these sections:

  • 1/2 vegetables and/or fruits
  • 1/4 protein
  • 1/4 whole grains
  • A small amount of healthy fats
  • Plenty of water

Protein is necessary for the growth and repair of all the cells in your body, including red blood cells, white blood cells, muscles, and hormones. Protein is made up of amino acids, some of which cannot be made by your body. When selecting a protein, choose lean, high-quality sources.
