March is National Nutrition Month and USDA partners have announced that today is "What's on my Plate?" Day.
For those of you who don't know, there is no more food pyramid. The USDA came out with a plate called, "MyPlate."
Learn more at: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/
Changing the food pyramid to a plate is a fantastic idea. Now people are able to get a good visual of what exactly their plate should look like.
Today, people are encouraged to take a picture of their healthy plate and post it on the USDA's Flikr photo page: http://www.flickr.com/groups/choosemyplate
I'm going to post a picture of my plate on here....carbohydrate count included.
Here's a picture of my dinner plate!
A chicken and vegetable stir fry served over brown rice!
I bolused for about 25g carbohydrates.
What does your plate look like....and how many carbohydrates were in it?
