Everything about the Mixed Meal Meal (MKM).
For the optimal structure of a mixed food meal, fill half of your plate with vegetables, salad or fruit. This gives the colorful base.
Then add a protein side dish, (1/4 of the plate) consisting of fish, lean meat, tofu, eggs, milk or dairy products (e.g. yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese) and complete your meal with a carbohydrate side dish consisting of potatoes, unsweetened cereal, whole grain bread, whole grain pasta or brown rice (1/4 of the plate).
For the best mixed meal construction (MKM), fill half of your plate with vegetables, salad, or fruit, add a protein side dish (¼ of the plate), and complete your meal with a satiating carbohydrate side dish (¼ of the plate).
