Plate composition

What is plate composition, you ask? Well, all macronutrients: fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, are important to your overall health and although you may find yourself on a “low carb” diet, that doesn't mean that you should be completely cutting out carbs for good – unless of course you have a food allergy or disease, of course. And this is often overlooked.

People on a “low fat” diet will take one look at essentially fatty acids and run the other way, and this is why we formulated a plan that speaks on a deeper level to our “diet” plans and what your plate should be composed of every meal. (We use the word “diet” loosely because we feel that it has negative, restrictive connotations attached to it and that we prefer to speak to you on about an eating plan that is targeted to what your body needs)

Focus on complex carbs like whole-wheat breads and pastas, brown rice, and sweet potato. It should also be noted that although fruit and vegetables are also carbohydrates, they should be included in every healthy diet due to how many nutrients they hold.


Great benefits of fats are that they provide us with energy and do not result in fat. Eat eggs, avocados, nuts and seeds, and milk to get the full benefit of fats.
