Two important elements of any healthy eating plan include vegetables and protein. Therefore, I love marinating and baking chicken and making healthy salads, as these are staples you can build into any lunch or dinner meal and are easy to make when you’re busy trying to balance work and home life. And if you’re vegetarian or have any other dietary restrictions, you can always substitute any of the foods you see here with alternatives that fit your preferences.
The recipe for this meal includes a low-sugar, Hawaiian BBQ marinade, paired with organic, boneless, skinless chicken. After applying the marinade to each piece, you bake the chicken in the oven for 20-25 minutes on each side at 425 degrees.
The salad includes organic spinach and mixed greens, sliced cherry tomatoes, avocado and low-fat shredded cheese. And I usually like to top my salads with a low-fat balsamic vinaigrette or avocado dressing.
I hope this idea is helpful and you’re able to incorporate healthy proteins and vegetables into your meals as well!
