2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein

2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein.
.
2 organic Duchy of Cornwall skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs roasted in extra virgin olive oil and salt on the skin so it becomes crispy.
.
4 M&S outdoor bred,  nitrate-free unsmoked, streaky bacon rashers fried in olive oil until crispy.
.
(Free from) Sacla tomato pesto, wheat free, gluten free, dairy free. 
Cauliflower, French beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, sweet potato and squash cubes.
.
.
It looks a lot on the plate, but once the bone is out of a chicken thigh there isn't much meat. 
Vegetables have very few calories.
I am not suggesting counting calories but I am suggesting that filling up on lots of vegetables is the healthy way to eat. 
The chicken protein with some healthy fats (olive oil and chicken skin) will help you fill fuller longer. .
