Thought you might find this interesting.

Today Health Canada released it's new Food Guide and the first thing that jumps out at me is there are no servings or portions mentioned. Rather the concentration seems to be earting healthy period.

"The new ideal healthy meal is now shown pictorially as a single plate with half of its space taken by "plenty of vegetables and fruits"; a quarter for "protein foods" such as meat, nuts, and beans; and a quarter for "whole grain foods."

There's an emphasis on eating more plant-based proteins".



See the government web site at: food-guide.canada.ca/en/

A few good articles are:
