It’s Memorial Day weekend — time for sunshine, swimming, grilling and camping. It’s important at mealtime that you consume a variety of foods from all the food groups. Using the MyPlate method makes sure that one-fourth of your plate is a lean protein, one-fourth is a grain and at least half your plate is made up of vegetables and fruit.
