1. Toss together 5 quartered precooked baby beetroot (150g), a handful of cherry tomatoes, a handful of baby mushrooms and 1 peeled and cubed pear.

2. Top with 2 T (Tablespoon) shredded lean biltong.

3. Crumble ¼ (OK so maybe half!) of a round of feta cheese on top.

4. Drizzle with 1 T (Tablespoon) prepared blue cheese salad dressing.

Assembling tip  Bottled baby beetroot is a reasonable substitute for fresh precooked beetroot.

Food facts  For a vegetarian meal, leave out the biltong and use half a round of feet cheese. 

Lean biltong provides a good source of protein for meals. Ostrich and venison biltong are the leaner choices, although lean beef biltong is also acceptable. 

The fibre content of meals can easily be increase by adding a piece of fresh fruit to the meal, incorporated into the meal or added as a “dessert”.
