Hi, my name is Stella Metsovas, and I'm a gloabally recognized food and nutrition expert. And today, I'm going to talk about healthy, high protein, low carbohydrate food items. Now, beginning with protein, you're definitely going to want to try and aim for an organic protein based beef, chicken, turkey. If you're doing anything fish-wise, always go for the wild fish, if you can. If you can't, try purchasing from a reputable country, like Norway has amazing salmon. That is the only non, I'm sorry, the only farmed salmon that I use. I also recommend, if you're doing canned tuna, to get that high protein in there, try not to overdo it, it does contain high mercury. I love using sardines as a protein source, they're super high in omega three fatty acids. One of my favorite brands that I use and they do third party testing as well, is California Planet Wild Sardines. Now, getting down to the vegetables. Any and all vegetables are really going to be considered healthy. But you want to mix up your vegetable sources. So, I like to use lot of root vegetables, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, zucchini, I love, especially if I'm craving something with a little more carbohydrates. Zucchinis have higher carbohydrate content than the rest of the vegetables. I love tomatoes when they're in season. The key to eating healthy, low carbohydrate, high protein foods, is always to make sure when you're selecting your vegetables. Try and buy in season vegetables. You're ensuring a higher quality, also make sure to try and purchase our vegetables from a farmer's market. I find that not only are the deals best there, the nutrient composition is greater, because they were harvested pretty close to the date of the farmer's market. Now, the way you're going to want to combine a lot of these ingredient suggestions, is to really make your protein. So, say, you're making a roasted leg of lamb or turkey. That's going to take you the longest cooking time. So, always make sure you have a protein source on hand. If you can't find organic pasture-raised proteins at your market. You an also order them online, you can buy frozen varieties that also saves on the cost. I know, sometimes organic can be a little pricey. But the frozen variety becomes less pricey and you're more inclined to have organic, which is far superior to conventionally raised animals. Now that you have your protein, you're going to want to always pair it with a vegetable dish. And really, all vegetables are pretty much healthy. Just be mindful of them being seasonal and you also want to try and get organic in there, when you can. In the case of fruit, I definitely recommend fruit, if you have a sweet tooth, but no more than two servings a day. Because fruit does contain sugar, making it higher in carbohydrate, if you overdo it. So, the key component to low carbohydrate, high protein foods, is making sure you create a healthy balance with your proteins to the vegetables. So, really that's high protein, healthy, low carbohydrate meals. My name is Stella Metsovas, thank you so much.
