Correct Portion Size: What’s on Your Plate!

“I’ll have the Ribeye with Baked Potato and salad please.”

 

Personally I don’t eat meat very often. I’m what you call a flexatarian. I will eat meat once in awhile, like if you are having a cookout or something and I’m there I will have a hamburg, brat, hotdog, or whatever. That’s the “flexible” part of the word flexatarian. For the most part I stay away from meat. I will eat fish like salmon but it has to be wild caught, not farm raised. The idea here is that I’m trying to minimize all the stuff that goes into mass producing beef, poultry, and farmed raised fish like steroids and antibiotics that is necessary to get the cost and numbers affordable for the consumer. Another reason is people, including myself, tend to overeat their recommended portion size of meat, especially steak. Its not hard because it does taste pretty darn good.

Correct Portion Size: Much healthier portion size.

 


 

 

An easy way to begin eating healthier starts with what you pile on your plate. To reduce portions, first choose a smaller-sized plate. Then section it off so you can get the most nutrition out of every meal.

• Fill half your plate with vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, green beans, or a mixed green salad.

• Fill one-quarter of your plate with lean meats, poultry, or fish.

• Fill the other quarter of your plate with good carbs like brown rice, whole-grain pasta, or sweet potatoes.

• Add a small piece of fruit or 8 ounces of low-fat yogurt.

• Limit fat to 1 or 2 teaspoons of butter or olive oil. Use nonstick cooking spray and you can limit calories even more.
