What are macro and micronutrients?

How does your plate stack up? Ideally our meals should be a blend of macronutrients and micronutrients. What does that mean? Macronutrients are protein, fats, and carbohydrates. They balance your blood sugar, help boost your mood and energy, and aid with your digestion. Micronutrients are vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which regulate the cell function for your ENTIRE body. You can get them from a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. For example, blueberries are high in antioxidants, bell peppers are high in vitamin C, and avocados are high in magnesium. Always try to eat a wide variety of plants. More is more!
