Associations of fats and carbohydrate intake with cardiovascular disease and mortality in 18 countries from five continents (PURE): a prospective cohort study

Low-fat diet increases the risk of obesity.

Hmmm.

What will happen to those low-fat, zero fat items on the shelves of retailers?

Lots of studies show that eating protein heavy meals is healthier.

And that fat is not unhealthy.

I read in an article, that when prehistoric people swapped to protein rich diet from picking plants and seeds, they saved a lot of time to think and use their imagination.

That’s why I live on my 50-30-20 rule.

I chose this because of my weight.

If I were lighter I could use the 40-40-20 or 40-30-30 rule.

That’s why I prepare sweets, desserts from rather fatty ingredients, like egg yolks when i make custard.

I make custard from egg yolks, rather than from corn flour.

Spinach and minced chicken breast

This is a healthy, Indian inspired dish for fitness people, who live on protein rich food.

The minced chicken breast gives the protein, the spinach gives iron and vitamins.

Ingredients

400 g minced chicken breast

200 g spinach paste

2 tbsp chopped onion

1-2 tbsp chopped garlic

1-2 tbsp tomato paste

Salt

Red chilli powder

Indian spices like garam masala

Method

I usually cook the minced chicken well in advance. I keep it in the freezer in smaller boxes.

I can make chicken jalfrezi if I want.

To prepare the dish. On a little oil fry the chopped onion until translucent.

Add garlic and thyme, then the minced chicken. Fry dry for a little while.

Add the spinach, and season with the spices and cook until the spices get cooked.

Add 2-3 tbsp tomato paste, cook for a minute or so and it’s ready.
