Several times I have been told that an individual wants to improve their nutrition but don’t know where to begin. What should you be eating? How much of each food group is recommended? The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has a great site called Choosemyplate.gov. Here is the link:http://www.choosemyplate.gov/food-groups/. They review all of the food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and dairy as well as information on oils and empty calories. If you want to improve your nutrition, this is a great place to start. Click on each of the food groups for detailed information.
