Splitting your plate in half and filling one half with vegetables and dividing the other half into protein and carbs is a great way to make sure you are eating healthy portions.
Carbohydrate choices include: whole-grain bread, pasta,rice, potatoes, beans, baked chips, pretzels
Protein choices include: skinless chicken or turkey, pork loin, beef sirloin, fish and other seafood, tofu, eggs, low-fat cheese
