      Meats & Protein
      Grains
      Fruits
      Vegetables
      Dairy
      Fats & Oils
    • Meat & Protein
      Proteins are the building blocks of almost every part of your body. Protein can be provided by meat, poultry, fish, legumes and nuts.
    • Examples
    • Grains
      Whole grains are cereal grains that contain bran and germ as well as the endosperm, in contrast to refine grains, which retain only the endosperm. Whole grains can generally be sprouted while processed grains generally will not sprout. Wholemeal products are made from wholegrain flour.
    • Examples
    • Fruit
      In broad terms, a fruit is a structure of a plant that contains its seeds.
      In non-technical usage, such as food preparation, fruit normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures of certain plants that are sweet and edible in the raw state. Examples are apples, oranges, grapes, strawberries, juniper berries and bananas, lemons and olives.
    • Examples
    • Vegetables
      The noun vegetable usually means an edible plant or part of a plant other than a sweet fruit or seed.
      Some vegetables can be consumed raw, and some may (or must) be cooked in various ways, most often in non-sweet (savoury or salty) dishes. However, a few vegetables are often used in desserts and other sweet dishes, such as rhubarb pies and carrot cakes.
    • Examples
    • Dairy
      Dairy products are generally defined as foods produced from Cow's or Domestic Buffalo's milk. They are usually high-energy-yielding food products.
    • Examples
    • Fats and Oils
      Fats and oils are a source of energy. They also aid in making both natural and prepared foods more palatable by improving the texture and providing a more desirable flavour.
