TIP - How do you plan your meals?

Many of us learned to plan meals from our mothers or home economics teachers by listing the main course, and then the side dishes. However, there is a better way.

Since vegetables and fruits should form the majority of a healthy diet and take up half of your My Plate dinner, start your plan by deciding which vegetables and fruits to serve. Then follow up by thinking of a complementary protein (not necessarily meat) and other meal elements.
