Chicken is a great source of lean protein and I can safely say that it is my family’s favorite way of getting it in. However, with all the tainting of the livestock that is rampant nowadays, make sure you check to see the source of your poultry. We like to buy Crescent Foods chicken when we can. It is available at most Walmart stores.

Broccoli

Broccoli has so many health benefits due to its nutritional profile that I am planning to have it as a regular part of our diet. Broccoli is high in nutrients such as vitamins K and C, chromium and folate. It is also a great source of Omega 3. Omega 3 helps the body fight inflammation and so makes Broccoli of special interest in cancer research. Read more about the amazing health benefits  of  this cruciferous veggie here.

I used cauliflower, broccoli and carrots but you can use almost any other vegetables you want, like bell peppers, asparagus and sweet potatoes.
