And this is generally how my plate looks for lunch most days 🌱🌿🍀🌵🍒🌽 As a rough guide, divide your plate into quarters fill 2/4 or half your plate with non starchy vegetables - think greens 💚💚💚 steamed broccoli, sautéed kale or cabbage, crispy lettuce, spinach, peas, green beans, spiralised courgette. Add some colour into that half too think reds, purples, yellows and white ❤💛💜 mixed peppers, red onion, sautéed mushrooms, garlic, cauliflower, radishes, aubergines or even some berries.
Fill the next 1/4 with some carbohydrates like sweet potato, baby potatoes, parsnips, carrots, rice, quinoa or pasta.
Fill your final 1/4 with a source of protein like meat, poultry, fish, eggs or some vegan/vegetarian options like beans, legumes, quinoa or organic tofu or tempeh.
Finally add a source of healthy fats (think 👍 sized) like a sprinkle of nuts and seeds, hummus, avocado or olives 👌
