How To Have A Well Rounded Diet.

In order to complete a well rounded and complete diet everyday, a person should eat a wide variety of foods. You don't have to stick with all vegetables or bland tasting foods. For example, whole grains should be eaten with just about every meal. These foods may include pasta, cereal, breads, potatoes, or rice.

Take a look at the food pyramid.

These foods should all be consumed throughout the day and are all necessary for a complete and well rounded diet.
