A Healthy & Delicious Meal

June 18, 2012

Looking for a healthy meal for your family?  How about a heart healthy meal that tastes good too! Despite what you may think, you can prepare a healthy supper that is also delicious. 

Lets start with the meat.  Making the meat portion of your meal healthy is actually quite simple when following a few rules.  When buying meat, always look for a lean cut.  Lean cuts of beef and poultry are lower in fat.  Lean cuts of beef include round, chuck, sirloin and tenderloin.  With all meat, it is essential to cut off any visible fat and skin (poultry) before cooking.  When working with ground beef or other ground meat, purchase those that are at least 90% lean meat.  This ensures there isn’t any skin, fat, or other undesirable parts mixed in.

When cooking, it is ok to marinate poultry, but try to use low-fat marinades, preferably homemade using wine, citrus, and other spices.  Meats should also be cooked in areas that allow additional fat to melt away.  Men will love this fact because the grill is the perfect place to cook a healthy, delicious piece of meat.

Healthy side items are even simpler.  Glory Foods offers several low-sodium veggies that are recognized by the American Heart Association®.  With low sodium collard greens, corn and tomatoes and okra to choose from, you can essentially plan out your whole dinner to be nutritious and also taste great.  Glory Foods also offers a selection of low sodium beans.  Offering red, black, and pinto beans, Glory Foods has you covered when it comes to side items for any meal.

Moving on to dessert, there are several options to continue the healthy streak from dinner.  One example of a healthy dessert is a cup of fresh berries.  Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, and Blueberries all have enormous amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to cap off the any great meal.  If you like chocolate, you are in luck.  Dark chocolate is an extremely healthy option for desert that tastes great.  Dark chocolate actually contains roughly 8 times the amount of antioxidants found in strawberries.  Antioxidants are great for anyone who suffers from high blood pressure and/or diabetes. 

So, this weekend, try something new.  You can prepare a healthy meal that everyone will love without sacrificing taste.  Glory Foods provides the perfect solution for low sodium side items.  They also have several low sodium recipes on their web site for those who are looking for great alternative healthy and delicious meal ideas.
