My healthy food plate is designed by PCRM, the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine. You can adopt it easily in your diet to succeed in your health journey. Discover the four healthiest food groups to transform your health:
Do you eat fruit daily? If you do, congratulations! We need more people to get inspired by you.
Fruit should be on your lunch and dinner plates, not just a snack you eat once or twice a week. It is one of the healthiest food groups for you.
We recommend you eat fruit everyday, at every meal. That's why all meal plans on the NutritionScience.in Plant-based Diet Masterclass start with a cup of fruit.
'Eat your veggies' sounds super boring. We get it.
But then it's either that, or end up in the hospital or worse - literally!
Vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables and cruciferous vegetables, have tremendous health benefits, from weight loss to cancer prevention to even heart disease reversal!
Don't let them sit on the side of your plate, as a small spoonful. Make vegetables the stars of the show!
Lentils, dals, pulses, legumes, are all an integral part of traditional Indian cuisine.
A meal without any dal is not a meal at all.
- Usli or Usal
All these traditional recipes contain pulses and legumes. Add any of them into your daily meals if they aren't there already!
4. Whole grains
