My Rice Serving☺️ VS. An Actual Serving🤨
Do you stick to “The recommended serving size” on the back of the packs?! Why is it, that whenever I actually measure out the recommended serving, is it always smaller than I imagine a serving is🤪 Do you find that too?!
It’s SO easy to fill up our plates too much with starchy carbs that but they don’t keep us full for very long! As you can see here sticking with 1/2 cup of brown rice, which still takes up a lot of the plate can still make a complete, filling meal.
Although it’s so easy to pile on the rice or pasta or carbs, if you are creating a healthy plate with proteins, lots of veggies, and healthy fats, plus your “recommended carb serving” even though at the start of my meal the carb portion may seem small, I find that by the end of the meal, I am more than satisfied and full.
✅Dividing your plate ✅
The American Diabetes Association recommends, at main meals, dividing your plate into quarters as follows:
2 quarters made up of vegetables
1 quarter of starchy carb foods
1 quarter of protein based foods.
The most important thing is to make sure you are having all the other food groups within your meal too!
Would you agree with this?! Francesca x
