I read a tip today from the Laptop Lunches booklet that suggested a way to lower amount of proteins (especially meat based proteins) you get per meal, since most Americans tend to get much more protein than we need (and far less veggies, fruits, and grains). Basically this is a trick for better portion control.

Here's what you do.

Base you meals around grains and veggies. View one (or both) of those as the main item and the protein (esp. meat) as a side dish. This would immediately make the portions more appropriate to what nutritionalists recommend.

What tips do you have that you use to maintain a healthy, balanced diet?
