This year, the USDA shifted its food guide pyramid (MyPyramid) to a plate (MyPlate) in order to make the information more accessible and easy to digest for people. Although they made some major positive changes in their recommendations, the research regarding animal products is not reflected in this plate.

Thus, the plant-based version is what I recommend as optimal guidelines. If your overall day's worth of servings comes from fruits and vegetables, always some leafy greens, and you fill in the gaps with whole grains, legumes, some nuts, seeds, and fortified plant-based milk, you are covering your bases and most likely consuming all the nutrients you need for optimal health.
