Nutritional Tips for Meat and Fish

Sometimes it seems to us that the healthiest, most proper, simple and easy thing to do is to take a ready-made shnitzel out of the freezer, heat this for our child, serve it together with some baked pasta flakes, spaghetti or rice, and make a check-mark next to the word ‘lunch’. However, this is an illusion. It’s certainly not the healthiest, and not necessarily the simplest. For some reason we seem to think that bringing fish or beef into the menu is complicated and requires resources of both knowledge and time. The message we want to bring you is: it is simple and easy, important, essential and healthy to bring fish and beef into our diets and also into our children’s diets.

The World Health Organization recommends that we should eat fish twice a week.

The easiest and fastest way to put fish into the menus is with frozen fish fillets. Frozen fish fillets - whether these are Salmon, Nile perch or St. Peter’s fish - are clean, boneless, ready to prepare - easy, fast and healthy.
The quickest preparation time. Low fat, nourishing, healthy and, most important - delicious. Since fish are easy, and also quick to make, it’s no problem to -prepare fish in a variety of different ways, all of which have one distinct advantage the brief cooking time, which makes them convenient and, equally important, preserves the nutritional value!!

Bringing beef into the weekly menu

It is best to eat meat once or twice a week. Customarily, meat is normally eaten at the weekend, since it is considered to be a festive food. What is simpler than a shoulder of roast sliced thinly? One portion provides a small number of calories as this is a low-fat cut of meat. Removing the visible fat after roasting makes it even healthier, without affecting the quality or the taste. Casseroles and stews are suitable for the weekend, also for Sabbath observers, as these can be cooked slowly over a low heat even during the Sabbath.
To eat a good quality steak you don’t have to wait for the weekend or go out to eat. A heavy skillet, a small amount of oil, sea salt and some black pepper - these do the job.
Entrecote steak is always good - the fat that is marbled within the fiber of the meat stops the steak from drying out.
An unhealthy meal? Not necessarily. A beef steak once a week, even if it’s not low in fat, can be part of a varied diet. Perhaps it’s not advisable for someone with high cholesterol but for everyone else - you can enjoy it without having to worry about it.

Fast and easy-to-make - Fish and Meat
Cold meat or slices of raw or stir-fried fish in a salad - a wonderful way to get a healthy meal that is low in calories, yet provides all of the essential nutrients.
Slices of roast beef or strips of salmon that were left in the refrigerator after Shabbat, or made especially, are available and ready to be quickly mixed in with a salad - and you’ve got a meal that is quick, nourishing, refreshing, nutritional and satisfying. “Sandwich” is not a dirty word - it’s an opportunity to have a healthy, quick and nourishing meal.
Place a slice of roast beef leftover from the Sabbath meal between two slices of whole wheat bread, together with paste and vegetables. The right type of bread together with a proper filling is a wonderful meal. Easy and quick to prepare, tasty and satisfying.

Meals that include a slice of lean meat or low calorie fish, together with vegetables, carbohydrates and a diet beverage, are also suitable to be eaten on a weight-loss or weight-maintenance diet.
