Food/Supplement Idea of The Week

Boneless, Skinless, Chicken Breast, Asparagus, and Ricotta Noodles


So, I decided that I needed to go all out so you guys could see something yummy and good for you!  I went to the store and started searching for fresh foods.  Non-fat foods, low sodium foods, etc.  So in my trip I came up with a concoction.  As you can see above, I cheated a little by putting cheese on my noodles, but it's non-fat cheese! lol.

*Disclaimer* I did not measure the caloric intake of this, but did an estimate on my phone application.  I also spent a very low amount on these items, so that you can see that it is easy and cheap to make healthy food! :)

Here's how I cooked my food:

  • Chicken Breast: 
    • Rinsed it off and placed it in a baking sheet.  Added fresh basil, balsamic vinegar, and pepper.  Baked it in the oven for 20 minutes. (or until cooked)
  • Asparagus:
    • First I boiled it for about 5 minutes.  Then I placed olive oil and minced garlic into a pan and sauteed them in the garlic for about 3 minutes.
  • Noodles:
    • I boiled it according to the box.  After draining, I placed them back in the pot with olive oil, garlic, pepper, low-fat Italian dressing and balsamic vinegar.  After I cooked it I sprinkled some cheese on top.
This meal took me approximately 40 minutes total to prepare and cook.  It was good and healthy!  I can not wait to make some more things like this. :)
