But how can we make our dinners look like that?
Go for simplicity. Which vegetable can your family agree on, which protein, and which grain? Compromise and have one thing everyone can agree on at each meal.
And remember to plan your menu, plan your ingredients, and plan to shop. Planning is essential to creating a healthy, well-balanced meal.
Here's an example of a plate:
1 cup steamed broccoli, topped with a pinch of parmesan or cheddar cheese
1 small chicken breast half, sautéed in 1 tsp. olive oil and seasoned with garlic lemon and herbs
1/2 cup cooked brown rice, cooked in low-sodium chicken broth
Make fresh fruit a part of your dessert to satisfy some sweet cravings!
