Analyze the meal for numbers of servings of fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products, protein foods, and liquid vegetable oils.
1. Your friend is on a weight loss diet. She consumes 1600 calories/day and to date has lost 10 pounds (over the past two months). You invite her to your place for a home cooked dinner. She typically consumes 600 calories for dinner. Prepare a 600-calorie healthy meal for her using the calorie from Calories.info (see the URL below; use the calorie charts on the left side of the page). Also, note that because of a family history of heart disease, your friend is watching her saturated fat intake.
After you have prepared a menu for a 600-calorie meal, analyze the meal for numbers of servings of fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products, protein foods, and liquid vegetable oils.
Is the meal you prepared healthy? Please describe.
