In brief: Variety in diet
Include 1/4 as protein, 1/4 as carbohydrates, 1/4 as fruits, and 1/4 of the plate as vegetables.
Eat. from each of the food groups, include whole grains, legumes, beans, chicken, meat, fish, dairy, eggs, etc. Try to stay away from fried foods, fatty foods, Try to avoid sugar drinks, and highly processed foods as they are lower in nutrients than fresh fruits and vegetables
