I agree.

I understand your point. I also know that each of us have different dietary needs, depending on age, activity level, availability of foods, likes and dislikes, etc. This isn't supposed to be a discussion to nail down the one, healthiest meal, ever. Instead it was an exercise in thinking about what to you is the healthiest meal. I've seen some great examples in this thread so far.

The goal of this thread is to get as many great and healthy recipes as possible, and maybe in the process, inspire others with less cooking experience, to try new, healthier meals.

Maybe we should post recipes with our entries.

If people want to post recipes, I think they should go in the appropriate forum and put a link here.

Not to mention any recipe labeled as "healthy" will have critics. My recipe for a "healthy" Pasta Carbonara would send Vegetarians, Vegans and those set against white flour over the edge.

+2. The question was "what do you consider a healthy meal" not 'what recipe do you go to for a healthy meal.'

White flour? Do you mean in the pasta? That's easily remedied by any of us who don't want white flour. I just use Italian, whole grain pasta.

Yes, it can be, but that never seems to be a given - it always has to be pointed out, which kinda spoils the spirit of a post.

Going on about what ingredients you think will be attacked also breaks the spirit of a thread.

How about rewinding back and just talking about our healthiest meal? With the knowledge that some people cannot eat it without adapting it to their particular diet needs. Also knowing that if someone asks about an adaptation/substitute they are not attacking your recipe, they are trying to fit it to their dietary needs/preferences.

Ahh, but then it would be your recipe, not mine.
