DayTwo Plate Guide


When logging meals in the DayTwo app, do you have a hard time figuring out how to make a meal that is tasty, nutritious, and filling? Look no further - we've created a guide for you! Follow these steps to help you reach your meal planning goals!

Build Your Plate

1. Start with a 9-inch plate. This will set you up for good portion control.

2. Fill one half of your plate with non-starchy vegetables like salad greens, green beans, broccoli, etc. 

3. Fill one quarter of your plate with a lean protein source such as chicken, fish, or tofu.

4. Fill the remaining quarter of your plate with a whole grain or starch like brown rice, whole wheat bread, corn, etc. Or include a fruit or yogurt.

5. Add a healthy fat to any of the above items - like olive oil, avocado, nuts, etc.

6. You may add a fruit and/or a dairy product if you are able to keep your calories within range.

Get Creative

Not every meal has to be separated out like this. Here are some ideas:

  • Half of a pita topped with tomato sauce, cheese, and turkey pepperoni with a side salad
  • Shrimp with sautéed zucchini, green beans, onions, and garlic on top of quinoa
  • A fried egg on top of half of a sweet potato with sautéed garlic, spinach, and onions
