We’ve all seen that picture of someone’s plate during the Thanksgiving Holiday; you know, the over flowing serving with crumbs on the side keeping it all together. We don’t normally eat like this the rest of the year, so why do we think it’s ok to do it in November? The truth is your body doesn’t need ALL that food. In fact, your body needs only a portion of it.
The ideal plate, according to the American Diabetes Association, should be 50% non-starchy vegetables, 25% protein, 25% grains.
