Tonight I had my favourite, smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and avocado.
- 2 slices of smoked salmon
- 1 avodcado
- 2 eggs scrambled (only one egg yolk)
This meal equates to
- 37g of protein
- 12g of carbs
- 40g of fat (good fats)
- 36% of daily vitamin C
This is quite honestly the quickest, simplest, and most satisfying dinner I can recommend. Prep time is about 5 minutes and then dinner is served.
I used https://www.myfitnesspal.com to calculate this. I used to use this website daily to calculate my macros and make sure I’m on track for the day / week. I now pretty much know what I should and shouldn’t be eating the quantities to consume so I use the app a little less often now. I highly recommend it if you are just starting your healthy journey.
You’re probably thinking, that is a lot of fat, shouldn’t we stay away from fat? That is completely wrong, especially if you are on a low carb diet. I would recommend learning about your fats before you start meal planning as I am not suggesting you go away and enjoy cheese fondue every night. The types of fat we should be consuming is UNSATURATED fat and they come in two categories – polyunsaturated and monounsaturated. This is because the body can break down these fats easily and they don’t sit there and contribute to our waist lines. I won’t go on and bore you as to how and why (being the Biology graduate that I am) but instead here is a list of fatty foods that we should be consuming within moderation:
- Nut butters
- Olives oil
- Dark chocolate
- Chia seeds
- Lean grass feed beef and pork
The trick is to educate yourself on food and then you can’t be mislead by the advertising campaigns. The truth is too much of anything is unhealthy, just as nothing of something isn’t very healthy (with most things).
