Leafy Greens



Fill �_ your plate with leafy greens and crunchy vegetables. Veggies provide maximum nutritional value with minimal caloric impact.

Our suggestions include: Swiss chard, bok choy, arugula, broccoli, French beans, Brussels sprouts, kale, spinach.

Fill no more than �_ of you plate with whole grains and/or legumes. Fiber-rich whole grains help you feel full and satisfied.

Our suggestions include: brown rice, quinoa, kidney beans, 100% whole wheat breads, navy beans, black beans, lentils.

We recommend that you incorporate healthy fats as accents to your meal or as part as your protein. Think olive oil, avocado, nuts & seeds, and their respective oils and butters.

For the last �_, choose a palm-sized portion of healthy protein. These foods provide protein and healthy fats, which can help prevent sharp rises in blood sugar.

To get the freshest, tastiest, most nutrient-rich food, buy organic food that�۪s in-season and locally-grown.
