If you’re trying to lose weight, your plate should be made up of:

  • ½  vegetables, preferably green leafy varieties
  • Out of the other half, ⅔ should be protein and ⅓ carbohydrates or starchy vegetables
    If you’re not trying to lose weight, this can be changed to ¼ protein and ¼ carbohydrates

I’ve put together 4 meals to give you a visual representation of this. The idea is that these are meals you can serve to the whole family, with the right proportions for you.

  • Chicken curry with onions and red peppers and brown rice
  • Roasted chicken breast with mixed roasted vegetables and a small jacket potato
  • Salmon fillet with roasted leeks and romanesco cauliflower and basmati rice
  • Fillet steak with sautéed peas, onions and mushrooms with oven fries
