Piggy's Visit to the Nutritionist

WOW. No WONDER I am always hungry. Apparently stocking up on vegetables and carbs isn't worthwhile if you're not getting the protein and healthy fat needed to hold onto the nutrients.

See the pic of the "Healthy Plate" I posted. Since Friday, I've had to make sure my plate looks like this at each meal.

1/2 full with vegetables, 1/4 full with starches, 1/4 full with protein (hard to get when you're a vegan), and there should be healthy fat somewhere on the plate (olive oil on the veggies, nuts, etc).

Try it with me?
