How to Balance Your Bowl

The bowl trend has evolved from breakfast to lunch and dinner. There are endless possibilities for every taste and flavor, and the skill level needed ranges from novice to gourmet cook. In other words, anyone can create a nutritious bowl. To get your nutrients in the right portions, start by visually dividing your bowl like this:

  • 1/2 Fruits and/or vegetables
  • 1/4 Quality carbohydrate, such as unprocessed grains (brown rice, barley, or quinoa), starchy vegetables (squash, sweet potato), or whole grain pasta
  • 1/4 Lean protein—fatty fish (salmon, trout, or tuna), beans and legumes, or chicken breast
  • + A source of healthy fat included in the mix (avocado, olive oil, or nuts and seeds)
