How to create a healthy plate: Step-by-Step
What’s a healthy plate? It’s a way to control your serving sizes where you don’t have to count. Just use a 7-inch plate for children and a 9-inch plate for adults. First, divide the plate in half and fill one of them with vegetables.
There are two types of vegetables, starchy like potatoes, corn, pea,s or plantains and non starchy like zucchini, jicama, cucumbers, carrots, or salad.
If you have diabetes, fill half of your plate with starchy vegetables, then 1/4 with whole grains or starch such as brown rice, corn, beans or whole wheat pasta.

In the other quarter add some lean protein like tofu, grilled fish, or chicken. What about adding a side of tortilla or bread?
It’s hard to resist, I know! The trick is, serve yourself instead of a small portion of the other starch on your plate.

To complete your meal, add a drink like unsweetened coffee, tea, or a glass of milk, but remember that drinking 8 ounces of milk affects your blood sugar just as it would if you ate another tortilla or a slice of bread.
