A deadly efficient combination.....
- 6 to 8 ounces chicken breast (spicy sweet sauce here, but be careful with sodium and added sugar)
- 1/3 cup cooked Jasmine rice
- Asparagus (cook and eat as much as you like honestly!)
This meal is protein heavy and will keep you running for hours. Be sparing with the rice and always choose long grain. Asparagus is one of the top 10 super foods nature provides....high in protein and has good fats. Get full on this if you need to!
There are several ways to cook this meal. I am a fan of the stovetop and quickness. Steam, sear, blanche, flash saute, add a little garlic and pepper. choose your fancy.
KEY FITNESS NOTE: Do not cut out carbs and fat too much. Just choose them wisely and strive for balance. Your brain cannot function properly without carbs and sugar....and your skin and hair will hate you (amongst other parts of your body) if you do not have fat. I am still a fan of the Zone diet. You have to eat a certain amount of fat to lose fat. Balance is everything. Everything.
Food is the most powerful drug if you use it right!
