Don't you hate it when you hear something is so good for you, but the information stops there?
The good folks at Leatherhead Food Research group recently tracked down all the good nutritional research -- thousands of nutritional studies -- to find those that were scientifically convincing. Instead of another report, they published a recommended menu. THE healthiest meal -- except this very specific list of ingredients doesn't come with recipes.
What about sharing the recipes with the rest of us so we can apply it to our meal planning?
And, to be extra helpful, here's a recommended menu with actual recipes -- a menu you can keep and try out for yourself at home.
In a (small) nutshell, here's what the ingredients are doing for your body:
Salmon terrine: Salmon is packed with high levels of omega 3 and is low in mercury.
Mixed greens: High in key vitamins that encourage skin cell growth and may protect against sun damage.
High-fiber rolls: Fiber can help you control your appetite and blood sugar to maintain a healthy weight.
Chicken with lentils & vegetables: Protein combined with low-glycemic lentils and vegetables.
Yogurt: Loaded with bone-healthy calcium and it's active culture can fortify your immune system.
Walnuts: Packed with omega-3s and contain antioxidants which may suppress the growth of cancers.
Go ahead and try these out: you'll feel healthier.
