According to Canada's Food Guide, meals are healthiest when half of the plate is fruit and vegetables, a quarter is meat or equivalent, and the remaining quarter, grain product.
A typical Asha meal is often half pasta, a quarter meat and vegetable, and the remaining quarter, cheese. Not exactly Canada's Food Guide-approved.
However, I am confident the authors would have been proud of me for cooking this recent meal: three quarters potatoes, tomatoes, onions and broccoli, and the remaining quarter a yummy roasted chicken thigh. Oh, and did I mention that broccoli was parmesan-encrusted? (I can always find ways to have my cheese and eat it too ;)
Recipes to come later this week.
