Whether you’re living with diabetes or just looking to modify your diet, the Diabetes Plate Method is a simple way to create perfectly portioned meals using only a plate.
- Half of your plate should be filled with non-starchy vegetables like asparagus, broccoli, and cucumber.
- One quarter of the plate should include lean protein foods like chicken, cottage cheese or plant-based meat substitutes
- One quarter of the plate should include carbohydrate foods like whole grains, beans, or green peas.
