How did you get on with hitting your rainbow food target yesterday?
A recent survey stated that in the UK most of us have about 7 meals that we rotate, no wonder we get bored and turn to sweet, fatty treats!
Think about the proteins you usually buy, could you change things up a bit? I think you could.
I promised that today we’d look at a different way to select your ingredients….. Well, how about their nutritional value?
Proteins can be ranked by their value – for example Aquatic protein trumps terrestrial!
I hinted earlier that you can choose your proteins to ensure you get the best nutritional value and variety from them, so here’s a simple rule of thumb.
Swimming beats flying, Flying beats running, Running beats growing out of the ground.
So, go for shellfish, then fish, then poultry, then free range pork, lamb or beef, then vegetable sources, you won’t go far wrong.
So, think prawns and pear stir fry with some vegetables,
maybe a few gluten free noodles and you have fantastic, quick meal. Eat with chop sticks and if you’re like me that will slow you down a bit, a stop you eating too much!
