It's a meal that contains quality protein, healthy carbohydrates and healthy fat.  A healthy diet will help you avoid that  "crash" feeling shortly after eating a meal. How? Well, the right amounts of protein, slow-absorbing forms of carbohydrates, and healthy fats can keep your blood sugar stable for 4-5 hours after eating.  Your body feels energetic -- and craving free -- for a good long time after consuming a healthy meal.
