Are you eating a balanced meal?

Are you eating a balanced meal?

Do you know what a balanced meal should consist of?  The 6 things that constitute a balanced meal are:

Protein, Vit B12, a whole grain, a digestive aidleafy greens and a vegetable.  A sample meal could be:  A piece of chicken, which would be your protein and vit B12; a spinach salad with a fresh lemon dressing, which would be your leafy green and a digestive aid; broccoli, which would be your vegetable; and quinoa, which would be your whole grain.   Very simple!  You could even put all of it together and toss it all in a bowl instead of eating everything separately.  It’s so simple to eat clean!  And you can start having fun with it by adding different herbs of your liking and playing around with different flavors you never knew existed!  Stay tuned for recipes and more ideas on how to eat to nourish your body!


  1. This sounds great! Do you have a recipe you could share for the lemon salad dressing? ;’)

    • Hi Annabelle! I do have a recipe for the lemon salad dressing and will post it tomorrow for you! Let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by~

  2. I love the balanced meal approach. I like others am a creature of habit. I have a hard time breaking routine. My routine that I so enjoy. I really enjoy LOL is my morning cup of Java. I discovered an organic coffee that has the equivalent level of antioxidants as a pint of blueberries in every cup. 6 times more than other coffee.

    Coffee is a great source of antioxidants and coffee is the number one source of antioxidants in the American diet. What is not known is that until recently coffee roasted using traditional methods only contained 1/6 of the antioxidants of the raw coffee bean. That is due to the high heat in the roasting process which destroys the antioxidants. There is a new Patented Roasting method that preserves the antioxidants right to the finished cup of coffee. In fact it does not alter the flavor or the taste. You can learn more about this breakthrough roasting method at There you will find scientific research about this break through roasting process. Super antioxidant coffee is made with organic coffee beans.

    So by using a balanced approach and adding this coffee to my diet I feel better but I also lost 52 pounds. The weight loss came from combining the things you talked about and finding foods that delivered higher levels of nutrients and antioxidants.
