Healthiest Meal On The Planet

Healthiest Meal On The Planet

Delicious three-course meal of super-foods is the world’s healthiest…

With all the ingredients in the world, deciphering the world’s healthiest meal could be seen as an impossible task. But that’s exactly what the Leatherhead Food Research Group has accomplished.

After sifting through thousands of nutritional studies, and picking the most 222 most significantly convincing, they managed to build a three-course meal of delicious super-foods, which they claim to be the healthiest on the planet.

Here’s the three course meal breakdown, with the inclusion of a homemade fruit drink:

  • Fresh and smoked salmon terrine; high-fiber multi-grain bread roll.
  • Chicken casserole with lentils and mixed vegetables; olive oil dressed mixed leaf salad.
  • Live yogurt blancmange topped with walnuts and sugar-free caramel sauce.
  • A homemade sports drink made from cranberry, raspberry, and elderflower.

Salmon contains omega 3 fish oils, which are good for cholesterol, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which is good for the arteries, heart and brain.

Multigrain bread is high in fiber and contains folates, which boost the brain and developing babies in the womb.

Chicken casserole with lentils and mixed vegetables provides protein which ‘contributes to a growth in muscle mass’. The lentils contain pantothenic acid, which can help reduce tiredness and ‘improve mental performance’.

The mixed leaf salad with a dressing of extra virgin olive oil is great for regulating blood cholesterol levels.

The live yogurt-based desert with sugar-free caramel-flavored sauce is good for digestion. The desert also contains guar gum, which is said to help in the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol, and lactulose, which ‘contributes to an acceleration of intestinal transit’. And walnuts, perhaps the most beneficial of all the super foods, have been proven to ‘contribute to the improvement of the elasticity of blood vessels’.
