Back to the basics for smart eating
It isn’t always easy to know what you should eat. The vast array of dietary and nutritional advice out there, coupled with an endless number of food choices, can be overwhelming.
To simplify things, it might it might be helpful to remember that all whole, unprocessed foods are comprised of only three macronutrients and that our bodies need all three to be properly nourished. Those macronutrients are protein, carbohydrates and fat. We need about an equal numbers of calories from proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. Most foods also contain micronutrients: vitamins and minerals that are also essential for good health.
How do you translate this into what goes on your plate? A good place to start is by applying what we learned as children about food groups and choosing the right number of servings from each group.
