Buh-bye Food Pyramid, Hello Healthy Plate

Apr 10, 2015 By One Medical

Remember the food pyramid? Earlier this year, the USDA announced its official demise and replaced it with a more intuitive model: the healthy plate. At One Medical, we have been using the healthy plate model for years, so we thought we’d share our version.

Besides ample amounts of vegetables, the foundation for a healthy meal consists of lean protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates, or PFC. If you build your plate like this one, you’ll feel full and satisfied after every meal.

Try it and let us know how you feel! And if you like it, use the embed code below to share it on your web site or blog.
