Healthy Plate

In 2012 I created a visual aid for putting together a well-balanced diet. Healthy Plate is a new variant on the outdated Nutritional Pyramid, which is unfortunately still used in a number of EU countries. The composition of the plate reflects modern scientific findings; shows the best way to maintain a healthy body and a healthy weight; creates a solid foundation for overall health; and supports the prevention of illnesses, as well as more effective ways to recover from them.
