Eating healthy doesn't mean eating boring! Check out this recipe for a colorful, nutritionally balanced and delicious white fish with mango salsa, prepared using the basics of MyPlate.

In June 2011, the U.S. Department of Agriculture introduced the MyPlate icon as a guide to making healthy food choices. MyPlate is divided into sections showing the five basic food groups -- fruits, vegetables, grains, protein and dairy. Think of it as a map for planning your healthy meals!

Here's how RENEW LA County Project Director and Registered Dietician Suzanne Bogert prepared this delectable white fish dinner:

1) Steam a handful of broccoli (vegetables).

2) Boil ½ cup of quinoa (grains). Quinoa is a whole grain that comes from South America and can probably be found in your local market. It also cooks faster than rice.

3) Grill or pan sear 3 oz. of Mahi Mahi (protein) or your favorite white fish and top it with mango salsa. You can make your own simple mango salsa by combining diced mango, chopped onions and jalapenos, lime juice and pepper.

4) For dessert, top a ½ cup of low-fat yogurt (dairy) with about ½ cup of mixed berries (fruit) for a sweet and healthy treat.
