When I was a kid I'd only eat my meat well done, properly well done, I had this fear about blood in the meat, I found it all a bit disgusting.
These days, I like it as rare as I can get it, maybe it's a kick back from being a raw foodie! Raw meat would be one step too far even for me, although, I doubt my friends would be suprised.
I'm trying to up my protein levels a bit, so here's a simple steak salad for a friday............
245g Organic (preferably grass fed) steak - fat 4.9g, carbs - 0.00 - protein 56.35g
20g Mixed salad greens, for me, the darker the green the better, if it's purple it's a bonus! - fat 0.05g, carbs 0.64g, protein 0.30g
5 Cherry Tomatoes - fat 0.15g, carbs 3.35g, protein 0.75g
0.5 oz Pistachio nuts - (around 25 nuts) fat 6.30g, carbs 3.96g, protein 2.92g
0.5 oz dried Goji berry - fat 0.5g, carbs 12.5g, protein 2.00g
0.25 oz flaked almonds - fat 3.59g, carbs 1.4g, protein 1.51g
Just fry the steak up nice in coconut oil and whack it all together in a big bowl.
0.5 tbsp Organic coconut oil - fat 7g. 0.00 carb/protein.
Overall balance - fat 21%, carb 20%, protein 59%.
Overall Calories 524.
WINNER OF A DINNER.
If you'd prefer to up your fat intake, make exactly the same salad but replace the steak with 150g of bio bacon (the streaky fatty kind).
Overall balance of bacon version - fat 57%, carbs 17%, protein 26%.
This seems a bit calorific, but is totally ok. Higher fat meals have higher calories, but they're not the calories that stick to your backside, I promise.
