The term balanced meals is becoming more and more popular, but what does it mean?
What it is:
- Non – restrictive
- Diversified; include ALL the food groups
- Provide the macro and micro nutrient your body needs via food
..and that’s it!
What it is not:
- A diet
- A complicated way to tell you to only eat certain foods
- Eating only fruits and vegetables
When someone talks about a balanced meal they generally mean to incorporate fats, proteins, carbohydrates and fruits/vegetable on your plate. It’s that simple, don’t restrict yourself.
