    A healthy Plate is Vital

Vegetables and Fruits: half your plate should be made up of vegetables and use fruits as your snacks. Get creative with your choices, try to use fresh or frozen when possible; and try to limit salt.

Whole Grains: use about a quarter of the plate for section. Food sources like: barley, brown rice, whole grain pasta, and whole grain breads are good choices.

Protein: one quarter should be used. Depending on your activity level and goals, these portions may require you to increase the protein and reduce carbs from vegetables and grains. But the key is balance. Good sources are lean proteins——such as chicken, fish, beans, and low fat dairy. 

For Seasoning: limit salt, butter, and sugar. Use a sweetener instead, this will lower your sugar pike in your system, you can also use spices and herbs to add some flavor to your meal.

Lastly, if you are short on time and have to miss a meal, don't eat twice to attempt to make up for a missed meal. Only eat the require amount that the activity that you are doing will require.
