Here is the food pyramid picture:
For knowing the products we consume, and the appropriate amount of each of them, one must consider the food pyramid. The healthiest (most often to eat) foods are at the bottom of the pyramid, and those which should consumed the least often are found at the top of the pyramid. Ideally, each meal should contain one food of the three main food groups. Fats are important, but should be consumed with moderation.
Cereals and tubers: That group consists of cereals, bread, pasta, cookies and many other products such as vegetables. Cereals and their derivatives are a healthy source of calories and also provide complex carbohydrates, fibers, proteins, vitamins and minerals. Depending on the number of calories consumed, you can add 6 to 11 servings of grains and vegetables every day.
Fruits and vegetables: A variety of foods are included in this group: potatoes, lettuce, carrots, chards, tomatoes, eggplants, etc., and fruits like mandarins, pears, bananas, grapes, kiwis, grapefruits, and oranges. These foods are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibers. They are excellent sources of carbohydrates, iron and potassium. It is recommended to consume necessarily between 3-5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, including a vitamin C-rich fruit (orange, lemon).
Food of animal origin: Red and white meat, viscera, cold cuts and sausages, eggs, vegetables, seeds and dried fruits and all dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt) are included in this group. Dairy products provide protein, calcium, phosphorus and vitamins. Viscera, liver and kidneys contain a lot of cholesterol. Cold cuts and sausages contain a large amount of salt and fat. Fish and seafood provide a type of fat that helps to lower the cholesterol in the blood. Seeds and dried fruits provide a health benefit as well as fiber, vitamins, magnesium, potassium and fat. The egg is a food that provides many proteins, phosphorus, iron and vitamins A and D. It is recommended to eat at least 3 servings of dairy products per day, from 1 to 2 servings of meat, and no more than 2 eggs a week.
Fats and sugars: Fats and oils provide the calories the body needs, and serve as a means of transport for certain vitamins to help maintain the body temperature. It's recommended to reduce the consumption of butter, margarine, cream sauces and seasonings fat and opt for vegetable oils. Some industrially manufactured products contain a high percentage of fat, such as cakes and pies. Refined sugars provide "empty" calories, that is to say, they provide energy without essential nutrients for the body. Therefore, it is recommended to reduce the consumption of very energetic and less nutritious foods, such as sugar, honey, jams, sweets and soft drinks.
