An advantage of reducing red meats, and emphasizing potentially healthier fish and eggs for protein, is that when we do have meat, it can be an extra-special treat. This is especially true when we eat the HumanaNatura way and follow HumanaNatura’s OurPlate healthy eating guidelines, and today’s showcase meal, brimming with healthy foods and nutrients, is a delicious case in point.

Please note that today’s HumanaNatura meal iis proportioned for both ketogenic (very low carb) and OMAD (one meal a day) eating – with about 2000 calories and over 70 percent of them from fats. However, options are included in case you eat non-ketogenically and/or more frequently than once a day.

Our meal begins by gently sautéing several cubes of grass-fed lamb on medium-high heat with a tablespoon of butter, a bit of minced garlic, and a dash of black pepper. When the lamb is nearly done, a generous handful of shredded cruciferous vegetables (available as a prepared mix at our local market) is tossed in and allowed to cook for a couple of minutes, and then the cooked portion of the meal is allowed to cool slightly. As the lamb and veggies cook, a generous raw salad is prepared to one side of a plate with fresh arugula, a large cubed avocado, coarsely diced cucumber, and sliced red and green bell pepper. When ready, the cooked foods are plated to the side of the salad, and the whole meal is topped with olive oil and white wine vinegar, raw sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, raw pecan halves, an optional shake of nutritional yeast, black pepper, and parsley flakes. This naturally rich, abundant, and compelling meal is then served promptly.

Options: For a non-ketogenic version of the meal, eliminate the butter, reduce the avocado and/or seeds and nuts by half, and replace them with with berries and/or a bit of cooked sweet potato. If you eat more than once a day, the meal of course easily can be scaled down for fewer total calories. And if you require more calories, the meal can be made larger by adding more vegetables, and more calorie-rch by adding extra avocado or lamb, or some grass-fed cheese. In all cases, we hope you enjoy this beautiful, healthy, and inspiring meal!
