Cheat sheet for breakfast, lunch and dinner

By | January 11, 2021

Good health, friends! I will not scatter for a long time about the benefits of weekly planning, because this is a key topic in all fashionable books on time management and self-improvement. One thing I can say for sure – it works. Therefore, for quite a long time, I have been haunted by the desire to create an ideal balanced menu for every day of the week in advance. Over the course of my life, I have accumulated various habits, tastes and preferences for filling the refrigerator. 

But you can’t run away from reality. In addition to the fact that food can be tasty, it can be healthy and useless. And here, of course, it is difficult to say that modern dietetics has gone far ahead. No. There are still doubts about the obligatory presence of certain mineral salts in the daily diet and the participation of certain substances in the vital activity of the body. I will not go into details, since I do not know much, and I do not want to give advice. But I want to share one of my observations. Whoever finds this interesting, please, under the cut! To simplify the task of planning meals, I decided to make a table of products containing certain substances necessary for a healthy and without pathologies person during the day. 

What, in fact, I want to share with everyone who wants to expand my experience. Using the contents of this table, it is easy to choose the optimal set of foods and understand which foods should be constantly present in the diet, and which ones should not be there at all. I did not set myself the goal of conducting scientific research, and I do not have the appropriate competence. It’s just a life-making sign that you can print and hang on your refrigerator door. 

Therefore, I am happy to invite people with great knowledge to this post to discuss my table. Hive mind works wonders! Let me make one more small comment: when compiling the table, I started from my own views on food culture, therefore it does not contain meat products, but contains milk and chicken eggs, which I personally consider the basis of a healthy diet. Also, I did not divide it by age and gender and put the average value in the consumption rate column, but it is more focused on an adult – significant adjustments are required for children and retirement age. And also do not forget that the heat treatment of products changes their contents greatly, but this, perhaps, is worth a separate study.
