For the vast majority of people a healthy meal will be comprised of the following:
- A quality protein source such as fish, chicken, beef or eggs
- A colourful array of above ground vegetables, such as spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, capsicum, zucchini, carrot, mushrooms.
- Natural fats to achieve desired taste and satiety. For example, avocado, olive/macadamia/coconut oil, butter and/or nuts and seeds.
- Depending on your degree of carbohydrate tolerance, quality carbohydrates such as sweet potato, legumes or brown rice.
Check out this example I posted on the Sante Medical Instagram account, which made a delicious meal using random ingredients I had lurking in my fridge… While you’re over on IG, follow me there 🙂
