Healthy Eating Plate – Harvard Health Publications


A note from Donna Hargrove, D.O., FACOG, – Nutritional Editor and Chef Bren Anrkum – Culinary Editor

Dr. Hargrove and I subscribe to the idea that nutritionally sound food choices create a solid foundation for improved overall health. We believe that whole foods are key to successful health improvement and maintenance. In particular, we believe, based on current cutting edge research, in using the model often referred to as the Mediterranean diet which has morphed into the new “plate” model pioneered by the Harvard School of Public health which emphasizes a high intake of vegetables, a somewhat smaller proportion of whole grains, healthy protein and fruits. Add to this healthy oils and water in our daily intake of foods and you have a complete nutrition package.
