Dear Body Buds,
Last night I made a low-carb delicious dinner for my friend and her husband. I decided to use one of the amazing products that came in my Keto Delivered box that shows up on my doorstep each month!
Being an evening meal, I focused on replacing the carbs with healthy meals in what’s known here at Body Buddies and the Power Foods Lifestyle as a PVF meal (protein-veggie-fat).
Ingredients (I picked these up in 5 minutes flat at my local grocery store!):
- 1 bunch asparagus
- 1 pound 90% organic turkey breast
- 1 summer squash
- 1 zucchini
- ‘Ndjuda Spreadable (salami)
First I washed my asparagus, zucchini, and summer squash.
Next, I diced them
all up (make sure not to forget to chop off the woody, starchy ends of the asparagus). After drizzling some 100% extra virgin olive oil in a medium-sized stir-fry pan, I put all the veggies in there, covered with a lid, then let them sit on
medium heat while I started the meat.
In a separate stir-fry pan, I placed the ground turkey breast as well as the spreadable salami. It took about 10 minute to saute those up together on medium heat. I went back and forth stirring the veggies as well as the meat to keep them from burning on the bottom.
When the veggies and meat were nearly done, I seasoned the veggies with Lawry’s Garlic Salt, then used these four seasonings in the meat–no measurements, just use some intuition with some sprinkles and taste testing. That’s the best way to learn to cook well!
- Lawry’s Garlic Salt
- McCormick Parsley Flakes (lighter sprinkling)
- McCormick Cajun Seasoning (lighter–this will give the meat some kick and spice!)
- McCormick Italian Seasoning (a little more than the parsley)
Last but not least, I cut the avocado in half, pitted it, then sliced them into halves (a little more than 2 oz. per half is an F [peak range for Fat = 8-12 g fat]).
Then it was time to eat this delicious PVF meal! We had protein in the meat (a little in the salami though that meat is more fats based), veggies of course are the asparagus, zucchini, and summer squash, and we get plenty of both our healthier fats as well as saturated fat with the olive oil, salami, and avocado.
If we were shooting for perfection in peak ranges, I would have cut the avocado down to half the size that we ate them in and used a little bit less oil in cooking the veggies. To learn more about proper peak ranges, please read my book, The Power Foods Lifetyle. This method of eating helps us reach optimal macronutrient balance in the body as well as change our body composition as we learn how to strategize our meals!
