Dear Living Fuel Family,

Eating with foresight and mindfulness can yield great benefits to your health.  The simple concept of considering the nutritional value of the foods you and your family enjoy actually sets your table apart from many of your friends and neighbors!

In my recent book, The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need!, I present Smart Meals, that is, well-balanced nutritionally powerful meals that also taste great.  Imagine enjoying both the taste of your meal and the pleasure of knowing you’re fueling your body with nutrition that helps you perform better in every area of life.

Today on LivingFuelTV, we walk you through how to craft your Smart Meal in your own kitchen.  Discover the key macronutrient that should be the basis of every Smart Meal.  Click on the graphic below to watch and learn.

KC: Welcome to Living Fuel TV. I’m KC Craichy. This is my wife, Monica. Is there such a thing as dumb meals? Of course, there is. A lot of people are eating dumb meals. Today, we’re here to talk to you about smart meals.

Monica: Well, let’s tell them first. What’s your definition of a dumb meal?

KC: A dumb meal is a meal that just fills, satisfies the moment. It fills the stomach, but oftentimes it causes the body to have to detox, like French fries and fried chicken and all these things that people eat that are just fillers that don’t bring nutrition to the party.

Monica: So, nutrition is key.

KC: Nutrition is key.

Monica: All right. Well, smart meal, you covered that in your new book, and for those of you who have KC’s new book, it’s on page 303. He describes the smart meal as it includes a clean source of protein and a wide variety of broad spectrum organic vegetables and some organic fruit in moderation, nuts and seeds. And you actually have on page 316 some smart meal examples.

KC: Recipes, yes. So the key is, now in chapter 11, we talk about protein and the dynamic role of protein and amino acids in weight optimization and in anti-aging and so on. The key really is to incorporate, build your meal around your clean protein source. I have a list of a lot of clean protein sources that could be vegetarian or it could be meat. But clean protein source and getting enough protein to fuel your body. Now, we talked about protein requirements being in, at least 50% to 75% of your weight in grams of protein a day and sometimes more. If you want to understand that better, read chapter 11. But the trick is building your meal around this protein source. Decide what your protein source is going to be, and then put a lot of clean vegetables, some fruits around it.

Monica: I find, too, when I eat like that, I’ll load up on the protein because I know that my body needs the protein. That’s the building blocks of all of our body functions. But when I load up on the protein and then I add a large serving of salad and maybe a large serving of my fresh vegetables, I’m really not that tempted to go for the breads or the pastas and the rice and even the desserts. I also don’t drink sweet drinks and such because if I am going to go for something sweet, I want it to count and I’ll have a piece of cheesecake or something like that.

KC: Terrific. This is the meals that you should incorporate in each meal. You should consider, is my meal a smart meal or is it a dumb meal? We sure hope this is helpful to you. We’re going to put some more recipes up for you. Enjoy. God bless you, and have a great day.
