Progressive Life At The Equinox

Visit HumanaNatura          Follow Us on Facebook and Twitter

Greetings from HumanaNatura at the equinox! In the natural year, we are now halfway between the extremes of light and darkness of the summer and winter solstices. Everywhere on earth, there is equal day and night, and a natural balance or centering that touches many aspects of life, and can aid and inform us all.

Natural Year Graphic

A Moment in the Everchanging Light and Rhythm of the Natural Year

In the HumanaNatura natural health system, and as explained in our Mastering The Natural Year graphic and post, we encourage review and renewal of our Natural Life Plans during the twice-yearly times of natural balance that are the equinoxes. This includes making changes to our existing plans as needed, and reconsidering what progressive natural life and health mean for us – as we look back, around, and ahead in our lives.

If you have not yet created a Natural Life Plan to guide your use and expression of the third HumanaNatura technique, Natural Living, our links will take you to our planning worksheets and seven-step planning process. Together, these resources will help you to begin more intentionally health-centered and naturally progressive life in the days and weeks ahead.

From all of us in HumanaNatura’s worldwide natural health community, we wish you new health and happiness, at this and every equinox.

Eggs & Oysters Salad Meal

OurPlate Score: 10/10          Follow Us on Facebook and Twitter

We might not think of combining eggs and fish in the same meal, but they can be delicious together and one of the healthiest food combinations, especially when we eat the HumanaNatura way and follow HumanaNatura’s OurPlate healthy eating guidelines. Fish is of course high in protein and healthy omega-3 fats, while eggs from naturally-raised hens are packed with fat-soluble vitamins and other micronutrients. Today’s meal shows one way of having your eggs and getting your fish too, in this case using shelled and pre-cooked oysters packed in olive oil. Check out the meal photo and instructions below, and be sure to subscribe to follow our healthy eating and other natural health posts!

Please note that today’s HumanaNatura meal includes shellfish and is proportioned for both ketogenic (very low carb) and OMAD (one meal a day) eating – with about 1800 calories and 70 percent of them from fats. However, options are included in case you are vegetarian, eat non-ketogenically, or have meals more frequently than once a day.

Our sample meal begins by wilting two cups of mixed and shredded cruciferous veggies on medium-low heat in a saute pan, on top of a standard tin’s worth of smoked oysters in olive oil, along with a bit of black pepper and minced or chopped garlic. Once the ingredients are lightly cooked and combined, they are used as the filling for an omelette made with four eggs from pasture-raised hens. As the omelette cooks on medium-high heat and then is allowed to cool in the pan for a minute or two, a generous raw salad is prepared with fresh arugula or another lettuce, a coarsely-diced large avocado, diced cucumber and red bell pepper, and a small scattering of pumpkin and sunflower seeds. When the omelette is done, it is plated as shown, and the whole meal is topped with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, an optional shake or two of nutritional yeast, and black pepper and parsley flakes. This delicious and extra-healthy meal is of course then served promptly.

Options: If you are vegetarian – HumanaNatura supports lacto-ovo but not vegan diets – or have a shellfish allergy, the oysters can be omitted or replaced with cheese. For a non-ketogenic version of the meal, use a small avocado instead and add berries and/or a bit of cooked potato. If you eat more than once a day, the meal easily can be scaled down for fewer total calories. And if you require more calories and nutrients, the meal can be made larger by adding more of the above foods, or by supplementing it with nuts and celery. In all cases, we hope you try and enjoy this healthy and moth-watering meal!
