Nutrition talk ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ
.
A really simple but valuable nutrition tip that dietitians will often talk to their clients and patients about is the plate model ๐Ÿฝ
.
This model recommends filling 1/4 of your plate with carbohydrates, 1/4 with a source of protein and 1/2 your plate with your fave veggies ๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿฅ•๐ŸŒฝ๐Ÿฅ‘
.
It can be used as a really simple strategy to see whether your meals are balanced and having half a plate of veggies at meal times will give you a push toward your 5 a day ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
.
Here I have:
1/4 carbs = quinoa
1/4 protein = a mix of lentils and black beans 
1/2 vegetables = roasted pumpkin, zucchini, cherry tomatoes and fresh kale
.
This type of plate can be achieved in so many ways it doesn't just have to be meat/legumes + plain veg. You can still keep this in mind when making mixed meals like pasta, stir fry, curry etc ๐Ÿค—
