One of the biggest challenges of staying healthy while working a demanding job is maintaining a good diet. It is so easy to whip up a box of macaroni and cheese or to stop by your favorite fast food joint, but your health is dependent on your activity and diet. Taking charge and making chances, such as standing at work at your height-adjustable desk or eating healthy, will benefit you in all areas of your life.
Many people would love to have a healthy diet that showcases delicious and nutritious food, but do not feel that the culinary lifestyle is compatible with their limited grocery budget. There is good news, however—there are many great recipes available that are cheap to create and healthy. Do not sacrifice your nutrition; try these meals and start eating healthy during your work week.
Mediterranean Lemon-Pepper Chicken
This delicious chicken dish will take you to paradise without having to purchase a plane ticket. Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees. Next, sprinkle boneless, skinless chicken thighs with an adequate amount of salt and pepper. Place these with the most meaty side down in a preheated skillet that has been coated with olive oil. Let them cook for five minutes on that side, then two minutes more on the other. Drain the fat from the pan, then return your dish to the lit burner. Stir in a quarter cup of white wine and a quarter cup of chicken broth. Scatter a generous amount of garlic, thyme and olives onto your chicken, then lay a lemon slice on each piece.
Then place into the oven, and let your chicken bake for five minutes. You can prepare any sides that you would like. Enjoy!
Place a pound of frozen shrimp (cleaned, tails on) into a bag with the juice of a half lemon, salt, pepper and a tablespoon plus one teaspoon of olive oil. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Bring three and a half cups of chicken broth and two cups of water to a boil in a medium pot. Let this boil for six minutes with turmeric and orzo. Drain, but save a cup of the liquid for later. Place one cup of frozen peas into this broth and let them sit. Sauté an onion in an oven-proof pan, then add your shrimp mixture that you prepared first. Cook for just three minutes, flipping halfway. Add an adequate amount of chicken thighs to feed your household, cooking through. Add the orzo and reserved peas, then strips of red bell pepper to taste last.
Place this in the oven to bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
