They include carbohydrates, fats, proteins, fibre and water. These substances are needed for the supply of energy and growth, for metabolism and other body functions. Metabolism means the process involved in the generation of energy aand all the ‘building blocks’ required to maintain the body and its functions.
Here are certain foods that you should include in your diet for a balance nutrition :
- Meat – Breakfast sausage, pancetta, chorizo – rich, fat speckled cuts are the perfect starting point. If you are a vegetarian then you have chanterelle mushroom.
- Fat – Fat is flavour. Olive oil, ghee, and butter are classics. Consider the meat you’re using, since something like sausage will render plenty of its own yummy fat.
- Aromatics – It’s all about alliums, garlic, onions, leeks, shallots or a combo of them for that heavenly smell.
- Veggies – Keep it simple or add the entire crisper. Squash and kale are two of our seasonal favourites.
- Herbs – Add zest and brightness with a handful or two of thyme, rosemary, and oregano.
- Starch – Stale bread is traditional, but rice is the perfect gluten free alternative.
- Liquid – Choose something with a little umami, you can’t go wrong with poultry or veggie stock.
