Use of meat in a diet


Meat is the most important source of useful proteins because it is high in fat, and mineral salts, and low in vitamins. Most vitamins and minerals are found in the intestines. It is filling and well digested, and the body makes excellent use of all its nutritional values.

Meat quality generally depends on the type of animal, age, sex, feeding method, handling of the animal before and after its killed, and the method of preparation.

According to digestibility, age and color distinguish between white and dark meat.

 White meat includes veal, poultry, fish, the meat of young domestic rabbits, lamb, goat, and frog legs, and other types of meat are dark.

Meat can be prepared in different ways and offers us numerous changes to the menu.

For example, poultry meat can be cooked, fried, and baked. 

If we decide to cook it, it would be good to use a larger pot where we can put more water and vegetables, in order to take advantage of all the benefits of meat. When cooking, a part of the fat comes out of meat that gives a special taste to the soup or foundation in the preparation for other dishes.

Here is a simple meat menu where from one chicken breast, we can make three different dishes.

First is a simple chicken soup, then we have cooked meat in horseradish sauce and Rice cooked in chicken stock.

In a larger pot, put chicken parts of your choosing with vegetables (carrots, celery, leeks, parsley …), salt, and water. let it cook for an hour on low heat. Meanwhile, prepare two smaller pots. Then when the meat is cooked, take it out of the pot, set it aside, and divide the soup into two smaller pots. 

In the first pot, season soup a little more with spices and put in noodles, and in the other chicken stock cook rice.

To prepare horseradish sauce we need cooking cream, grated horseradish, some salt, and pepper. Stir it well, add lemon juice and water, and cook for about 5 minutes.

And there you have it!
