According to the University of Michigan half of your plate should be filled with non- starch veggies. It's much easier to snack on fruit, but that is not always the case with veggies. How many servings of vegetables do you really get in your breakfast, lunch and snacks? Yeah, that was our problem, too! We now put a focus on having more servings of vegetables in our meals to help make up for what was missed earlier in the day.
We also cut down the "extras" that aren't so good for us, such as high-fat ingredients and cooking techniques, extra sodium, prepackaged/processed foods, and additives. Our recipes are made up of ingredients that balance convenience with nutrition and can be found at a basic grocery store.
You don't have to be intimidated by the thought of cooking from scratch - all of our recipes are selected because they are easy to make. We all want good tasting, healthy food, but that has to balance with the cost and ease of obtaining the ingredients and the time we have available to put the meal together. If any of these things is out of balance, it will cause us stress.
