A prime factor in maintaining a healthy lifestyle is learning to prepare meals that are good for you; however, this doesn’t mean that you have to be a superior chef to do so. When I am preparing healthy meals for myself, I tend to focus on portion control and including plenty of colorful fruits or vegetables. One of the most recent meals I prepared was so delicious that I had to share the recipe(s) with you!
|The complete dish: Chicken breast in a Sauvignon Blanc sauce | Sweet potato mash in a bell pepper cup, honey-glazed pistachios and Brie cheese on top | Zucchini cups filled with asparagus spears and shredded carrots | Apricot relish|
|1) For the chicken breast, I sauteed garlic and onions in chicken broth with a splash of Sauvignon Blanc wine. To thicken up the sauce slightly, I added a dash of cornstarch as well.|
|2) The apricot relish was quite simple to prepare, as I chopped up some cherry tomatoes and mixed it with diced zucchini along with a splash of lime juice and apricot preserves.|
|3) To make the zucchini cups, I hollowed out blocks of zucchini with a melon-baller and threw in some cooked asparagus spears. I shredded up some carrots and placed the zucchini cups on top.|
