OurPlate Score: 10
Salad meal eating the HumanaNatura way and using HumanaNatura’s OurPlate guidelines helps to optimize our daily portions of veggies, proteins, and fruits for lifelong health and fitness. In practice, once we adjust to having half our food volume come from raw veggies, our main focus becomes right-sizing our protein and fruit intake – to meet but not exceed our macro-nutrient and calorie needs, respectively. But right-sizing our daily protein foods does not have to mean less interesting meals, as our many example meals show. One way to optimize proteins and make sure our meals stay interesting over time is a change-up where we mix more than one protein in a meal, and this very tasty meal does just that.
Today’s quick and easy-to-prepare salad meal uses two proteins for extra taste and variety, and was made in about ten minutes. It begins with a stir-fry of sliced ginger chicken, shrimp, red onion, chopped broccoli, and diced tomato. This protein and veggie mix is served with our usual half-plate of mixed greens, along with coarsely slivered cucumber, tomato, and orange. It’s all finished with a few pistachios, parsley, coriander, a little lemon, and black pepper. Super healthy and a super satisfying mix of tastes!
