While it is true that HumanaNatura advocates great care with carbohydrate-rich foods – and even the elimination of grains, beans and significant starches from our diet – this does not mean we are indifferent to fat consumption. In fact, since fats and oils will typically constitute about 50 percent of our daily calories when making meals the HumanaNatura way and following HumanaNatura’s OurPlate healthy eating guidelines, care with fats is especially important.
Our guidelines for fats can be quickly, if roughly, summarized as a three-step process: 1) avoid all dangerous fats, such as trans fats and fats in foods containing nitrates, 2) reduce less desirable fats, especially ones from red meats and eggs, and by favoring lean fish and poultry (as well as leaner and more eco-friendly red meats from grass-fed animals), and 3) ensuring that the majority of our fat (and thus a significant part of our protein) comes from vegetable sources, such as olive oil, avocados, nuts, and seeds
Today’s HumanaNatura salad meal shows that attention to our fat levels and types needn’t be a chore, and in fact can be quite easy and delicious. The meal was made in less than 10 minutes, and features a sautéed salmon kabob with mixed greens, diced cucumbers, grape tomatoes, and sliced avocado. It is dressed simply with olive oil and white wine vinegar, and garnished almost as simply with lemon-pepper, a dash or two of Cajun powder, and parsley. Fast, delicious, and rich in healthy fats and oils…as always, when we prepare our meals the HumanaNatura way.
