In the age of weight loss and meal plans it can be easy to get swept up in ridiculous, and expensive dieting plans. One thing that holds true through all the bullsh*t is that, if you eat good you feel good. If you don’t like to eat good because it doesn’t taste good there’s two things you can do.
For one thing, you can train your taste buds to prefer healthier foods over McDonald’s and brownies. Yes it’s true, if you expose yourself over and over again to carrots you will eventually reach for the carrots not the cookies. Over time, your body will guide you in a healthier direction, you just need to give it the option.
Another thing you can do is, try my stuffed chicken recipe. It tastes good, and it’s a healthy option for dinner. The ingredients are pretty basic, and it’s fairly easy to make.
- Chicken breast
- Feta Cheese/spinach/roasted red peppers
- Eggs (2 or 3) and breadcrumbs
- Coconut oil
- Clear off your kitchen counter top (I know its covered in junk mail and coupons like mine) and lay out your ingredients.
- Prepare two bowls, one with bread crumbs and another with two eggs mixed with a bit of milk. (use your judgment, but not the kind you use on Facebook)
- Cut off the fat of the chicken, while doing this have your spinach steaming.
- Mix three equal parts of spinach, feta cheese, and roasted red peppers in a bowl.
- Cut down the center of your chicken to make a pocket, and stuff with the mixture.
- Put tooth picks through your chicken to hold the mixture in. (kind of how you hold in your work frustration)
- Cover the chicken in your egg and milk mixture, then breadcrumbs.
- Put the chicken in a pan with a thin layer of coconut oil to fry. Fry each chicken until it begins browning. (like right before you get sunburnt at the beach)
- After the chicken has browned put it in the oven for a half hour at 375 degrees. Check, with a thermometer, that the temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees before serving.
This is my all time favorite thing to both eat, and make! Worth the tooth pick hassle.
