Healthy & Simple Meal

Monday, November 3, 2008

When it comes to recipes, the words healthy and simple don't always seem to go together. But preparing a nutritious meal doesn't have to be hard.

The first step is to pick a lean protein. Dieticians and nutritionists recommend getting lean protein from natural, lean sources such as skinless poultry, fish, beef or pork loins and beans. Protein is essential to keep the body fueled.

Lean chicken breasts are an excellent source of protein, and their versatility lets them match up with just about any side dish.

Tuna, and seafood in general, are also good protein sources, and they have the added benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. Research shows that omega-3s can improve heart health and reduce the risk of some kinds of cancers. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least two times a week as part of a healthy diet.

To make healthy cooking easier, don't be shy about using products that do part of the work for you. Using fully cooked and seasoned chicken breasts or ready to serve tuna medleys, means that the family gets a healthy and delicious meal in no time. They can be paired with your favorite simple sides, or turned into tasty wraps, salads and skillets for something the whole family will enjoy.
