Balanced fish mealAs a Health practitioner I several times get asked how to plan a healthy balanced diet, well my answer is simple - do what your ancestors did before all the supermarket foods were not yet available... simple. But no, it ain't that simle either, here is a sample menu to help you understand what balanced menu is all about...

 

       Breakfast:

 

 one cup strawberries, one-half cup low fat cottage cheese with one tablespoon of sunflower seeds. One slice of whole grain toast.  

 

    Midmorning:

 

one small apple, eight walnuts, two ounces lean sliced chicken breast.   

 

    Lunch:

three cups salad consisting of dark green lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower and tomatoes with two teaspoons of walnut oil, two ounce organic beef patty served on a whole grain roll.  

 

   Mid afternoon:

 

six ounces of tofu, one and one-half cups carrot sticks, one tablespoon of pumpkin seeds.  

 

 Dinner:

 

one-half cup whole wheat spaghetti with one-forth cup organic marinara sauce and two ounces ground turkey. Two cups cooked green vegetables such as asparagus, spinach or broccoli drizzled with two teaspoons flax oil.  

 

      Evening Snack:

 

six whole grain crackers with one ounce sliced cheese and one small apple.

 

 

Special Tips:

                           1. Drink at least six to eight glasses of water per day.

 

2                          2.Choose whole grain breads and cereals.
