Within a balanced meal you should have all 3. Make sure that the protein part is large enough.

Protein for a full meal, is equivalent to the palm of your hand

Lunch - The Important Midday Meal Provides kilo joules and energy for the rest of the day!

Digestive functions are at their best ....


The basic recipe: Proteins & Vegetables


Proteins - Fish, Poultry, Lean Meat, Tofu,Tempeh, Eggs, Cottage Cheese, Ricotta, Low Fat Cheese.

Vegetables - as in salad, but don't restrict yourself to salad vegetables, include crisp steamed, cooked or blanched vegetables - warm or cold - into your salad.

Eat protein, vegetable combination as a salad or serve separated. It is an ideal meal to prepare at breakfast and take to work. To keep cool, place meal into a cool-seal-bag with a cool pak.

Add: Nuts, Seeds, Tahini or Oil for your fat requirements.

For taste add: herbs, spices, apple cider vinegar, tahini, tamari, miso, lemon juice, or homemade sauces, dressings, dips, soy-mayonnaise, tofu-sour cream or any combination you fancy.

General measurements are:

For Fish about 125grams for a meal - about the size of your palm

If this serve is too small for a large or very active person, add more protein, but also more carbohydrate and fat to keep t e balance.
