The Perfect Meal
By Dr. Nick Curry


Each meal should consist of fresh, minimally processed foods. This includes protein, vegetables, smart carbohydrates and healthy fats. This is good information to know, but how do you turn these foods into a delicious meal? Flavors, seasonings and cooking methods are they key to making your meal perfect.


When choosing your ingredients, there are a couple of things to consider. First, what are you in the mood for? You’ll be more likely to enjoy your meal if it consists of foods you actually wantto eat. Second, what is available? FIFO. First in, first out. If you purchased broccoli over the weekend and green beans last night, the broccoli should probably be eaten first so it doesn’t go bad!
