Designing The ‘Perfect Meal’ With Your Hands
We're celebrating Healthy Eating at Foodathon this week and to start with, let's talk about how to make the perfect meal.
The Perfect Meal takes the complexity out of creating healthy, and goal orientated, meals. It follows a simple system of portion sizes (using your hands) that will help ensure that you consume all of the nutrients required to keep your body happy, healthy, and lean.
So how does it work?
Well, it works on the simple premise that every meal must have a few components, and each of these has a serving size that’s determined by your hands. These components are –
- 2 palms of protein – the building blocks of muscle
- 2 fists of veggies – for vitamins, minerals, and fibre
- 2 thumbs of healthy fat – to improve testosterone levels
- A big glass of water – because you’re probably dehydrated, and as Dan John would say ‘water is the most anabolic thing on this planet’.
That’s a pretty simple way of setting things out, right?
