In the divided plate model, grains should make up…

In the divided plate model (a guide for balanced eating), grains or a starch-based side should comprise a quarter of your plate. Go for healthy whole grains, such as brown rice, whole-wheat pasta or a slice of whole-grain bread. Cover half of your plate with vegetables and split the other half into two quarters, one for grains or starch and the other for a lean protein, such as fish, skinless poultry, beans or tofu. Try using a smaller plate to keep portions in check.

Be sure to talk to your doctor about the right diet for you.
