Don’t forget the healthy fats
This means using cooking oils made from plants or seeds.
For instance, canola, olive, peanut, soybean, rice bran, sesame and sunflower oil are all considered healthy fats.
These three food types – lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats – can be combined in such different ways to keep your main meals interesting, healthy and tasty.
Even avocado is considered a healthy fat – great with scrambled eggs on toast for a lunchtime snack.
