We all know that a healthy diet is important for maintaining high energy, a stable weight, and a radiant physical appearance. But do you know what aspects are key to proper nutrition?
Most people don’t– and if you’re one of them, that’s okay. Consider this step one in the learning process. A nutritionally balanced meal is composed of a healthy ratio of macronutrients. The macronutrients we need are carbohydrates (like grains and potatoes), fats (like oils and nuts) and proteins (like meat and beans). If your diet relies too heavily on any one of these categories, problems can arise. But when you learn how to eat each in appropriate amounts, you will find yourself looking and feeling better than ever.
So what does this have to do with us? Well, we specialise in kebabs, which are a perfect combination of carbs, fats and proteins. Regardless of whether you eat red meat, white meat or vegetarian, there is a kebab option that will be nutritionally ideal for you.
At BBQ Villa, we encourage our customers to pick and choose the ingredients that they want for a customised meal option. Here are a few items to choose from that fit each macronutrient group:
Carbs: the pita wrap! (Or tabouli, if you prefer a bread-free option.) And if you’re feeling cheeky, a serve of chips can stand in as your carbohydrate ration! Believe it or not, potatoes are actually an incredibly healthy source of minerals and fibre– not quite as unhealthy as you may have thought.
Fat: Tahini, one of our favourite condiments, is a sesame seed paste that delivers a dose of crucial fats that can help fight cancer, lower cholesterol, and reduce excess body fat! Our yoghurt sauces also have a balanced combination of fat and protein that help curb your appetite and keep metabolism running efficiently.
Protein: Of course, any meat you choose for your kebab will be rich in satiating, muscle-building complete proteins. But if you choose to lose the meat, don’t think that you’ll miss out on your protein requirements. Our vegetarian kebabs are stuffed full of fresh falafels, which have heaps of plant-based proteins to keep you strong. Add a bit of hummus on top and you’ll have an optimal vegetarian protein option!
Other perks: Loading up your kebab with our assortment of fresh veggies will boost your diet with essential vitamins and minerals. Our yoghurt and cheese options provide prebiotics and probiotics to keep your digestion functioning, and our herbs/spices are a great source of antioxidants that increase immunity to keep you well.
So now that you have a basic understanding of your macro and micro nutrient needs, you can incorporate these elements into your diet to stay fit, healthy and energetic.
