Tomatoes and onions

A great idea would be to fry onions in virgin olive oil, once they are ready add tomatoes and season with salt. This meal when served hot can be taken alongside brown bread or rice.


Chicken breasts


Chicken is generally healthy when compared to red meat. However not all parts of a chicken are ideal for someone watching out on weight and health. It also depends on the cooking method used. Chicken breasts are considered great as they are low in fat, and contain no carbohydrates. Instead chicken breasts are enriched with sodium and proteins. Consuming a meal rich in proteins helps you stay full for long. Proteins also require more energy to digest, this therefore speeds up metabolism and the amount of calories consumed.A delicious chicken recipe can include roasted kale as well. Roasted kale is crispy and adding lemon juice will spice up the dish.

Leafy greens


Never exclude green vegetables in the list of healthy and delicious foods. Spinach for instance can be thawed and dipped into pasta sauces, omelets and soups. Spinach has several vitamins which include K, A and C. Broccoli is also a super vegetable loaded with vitamins and minerals like K, C and A, E, fiber and chromium and is an excellent Cancer fighter. Broccoli can be steamed for no longer than 5 minutes and sprinkled with a little salt or butter paired with tasty lean chicken breasts for a satisfying and flavorful meal. You can also try collard greens and dip it in sandwiches or salads. The good thing with vegetables is that you can be creative with them. For instance you can derive salads, soups and sandwiches out of ordinary green vegetables.


Legumes


Most legumes are very tasty and loaded with important nutrients as well. Lentils for instance are very sweet, cooks in less than 20 minutes and are nutritious. Lentils are specifically good for the heart. Other legumes include black beans, and peas. They are delicious and can be consumed alongside, bread, rice, or vegetables.
