We have added a new section under “Dieting and General Health” entitled “Nutrition”. Since we do not have a dietitian on staff yet we figured we could start sharing some healthy meal ideas with you so you can see how we eat to stay fit. So here is the first one…Enjoy.
Meal Includes: Chicken, Steamed Broccoli, Black Beans, Banana Peppers
Chicken – High in protein, low in fat.
Broccoli – A “Super vegetable” – Benefits here.
Black Beans – High in dietary fiber.
How to Prepare:
I defrosted the chicken and then marinated it in some hot sauce, banana peppers (with a little bit of the juice included), and a small amount of chicken rub and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Then I grilled the chicken over the stove with the banana peppers. Remember, spicy foods are good for your metabolism so having a bit of hot sauce and the peppers definitely gives the chicken a spicy flavor/taste.
(NOTE: Seasoning with banana peppers is great because they contain 0 calories and <1g of fat)
Then I steamed the broccoli and did not add anything to it. You don’t want to ruin the health benefits by adding butter, salt, etc. Broccoli is good enough with a bite of the chicken so don’t waste the benefits by adding unhealthy taste enhancers to it.
Lastly, just open up your can of black beans and let them cook as directed. Now you have a healthy, hearty meal with many benefits that is actually quite delicious. Save your leftovers for lunch tomorrow or another day. Then enjoy. Remember to eat slow so that you can accurately know when you get full.
