Healthiest Meal on Earth – Verdict Is In!

 

Healthiest Meal On Earth worth eating or not?  Is it satisfying?  Does it taste good?  Would we eat it again?  Verdict, please!

It’s been in the news the last few weeks, online and in the magazines.  I was intrigued when I read the headline Healthiest Meal on Earth and then thought, ‘it must not taste very good.’  I started to read through the ingredients; there was salmon, which I could eat everyday if I really wanted to, and lentil, yogurt, walnuts, chicken, and caramel.  Really, caramel?   Don’t judge too fast, this meal might have possibilities!  We could be onto something here.

Could my taste buds accept something so healthy?  I usually assume healthy is less flavorful and boring, so healthiest in the world must mean, zero flavor!  I think?  However, I was intrigued by the title and it didn’t seem too terrible to try.  Would my husband get excited over lentil, veggies, and then yogurt for dessert, a good guess is no, but decided to give it a shot!

Here it is, the almost healthiest meal in the world!  I included everything except for the chicken, which was suppose to be in the lentil, so our healthiest meal in the world lacked a little protein.  I just didn’t get a chance to make the chicken, no other reason why.  I had gone to the grocery store late, Maddie was getting restless in the stroller, my basket was getting very heavy, I needed to get home, and the chicken was at the other end of the store!  It might not seem far, but when you have a hungry restless toddler, the end of the isle seems far!

The meal is actually very quick to make, especially since salmon cooks in just a few minutes (click here for recipe).  I added a squeeze of lemon for flavor to the salmon and used olive oil as salad dressing.  Looking at my finished product, I probably could have dressed-up the plate and dessert bowl a little with a few garnishes.  I’ll have to remember that for next time!  I always think presentation of a meal and table setting can make mealtime fun and inviting and adds conversation.  I really like table settings with lots of color (you know how I like color! ) from placemats, napkins, candles and flowers, and don’t forget, the food and drinks add color as well!  In the picture above, I used colored placemats and napkins, and I quickly put a couple purple flowers in a small vase, and wallah, done!

The verdict is in!!  Dean and I really enjoyed the meal.  There was a nice variety of food and a tasty dessert!  At first, I didn’t think I would be able to eat so much food, however at the end of the meal (I ate everything!) our taste buds and stomachs felt satisfied, not stuffed!  There was a nice amount of flavor from the salmon with lemon, the vegetables with mixed greens felt light and fresh, and I’m sure a squirt of lemon on the salad would have been palate pleasing as well.  I really like lentil, but I think Dean could have done without it.  The yogurt dessert with caramel was d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!  Overall, we both enjoyed the meal and would have it again!

Have you tried the healthiest meal in the world?  If so, I would love to hear your thoughts!

Until next ride,

Amy
