All the fresh produce that comes with Spring affords a great opportunity to fill your plate with new types or varieties of vegetables and fruit while reducing that portion of meat. Remember AICR's rule of thumb: 2/3 (or more) vegetables, fruit, whole grains and beans and 1/3 (or less) animal protein. This month's newsletter gives you more reasons to start reshaping the meals you eat.
