The nutritionally perfect meal
 
I once read that, dollar-for-dollar, the perfect-but-cheap meal is a baked sweet potato with a glass of buttermilk (I read a lot, so have no idea where I read it and how valid it is). In fact, I do buy those microwave-easy sweet potatoes, and make a ranch-style dressing with either buttermilk or yogurt, and can see that being a good meal.

So, what do you know of as a meal that has everything, nutrition-wise, is still tasty, but doesn't break the bank?

Thinking hard about this, hmmm. Ok, So here goes my attempt at the perfect, nutritionally sound meal.

4 oz. wild King salmon steak, dressed with olive oil, minced fresh basil, dill, and a touch of salt, with a healthy sprinkling of pepper, broiled to perfection.

!/2 cup baked sweet potato, with the skin, and a little "You Can't Believe It's Not Butter", and a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg.

1/2 cup dried black beans cooked until soft and seasoned with black pepper, cumin, coriander, salt, and cilantro

8 oz. glass of milk

Desert: Fruit Smoothie made from chilled blueberries, strawberries, sliced kiwi, and raspberries, with a light sprinkling of sugar, or Splenda, and a little vanilla, with one brick of silken tofu and 1/2 cup milk to add liquid. Add a tsp each of ground flax seed and wheat germ, and for extra flavor, a tbs. of malt. Blend until smooth.

I've heard that a sweet potato is a nearly perfect food - and also heard that about a banana, so I suppose a baked sweet potato with butter would be good for dinner and a banana for dessert. I'd rather have them both with something else.

My meal for tonight:
grill fish fillet + pasta(mixed with salted butter and cheese) + fresh veggie salad ( green pepper/carrot/onion ).

All cooking need 20 minutes. easy & fast!:smile:
