When in school, time, money and convenience are three of the main determinants of what we eat. While we would all love to eat like kings and queens, sometimes fast food is the easiest answer. But this impacts your wallet and expands your waistline.
The sooner you realize that eating healthy is one of the most important and simple things you can do, the longer and better, you will live.
Time magazine came out with 10 foods that pack quite a punch. So here are the ten, as well as one example of a simple or hard food tip that you can prepare that will taste good, impress and keep you fit.
Tomatoes are a great addition to salads and meals; they are perfect both raw and cooked and for the gentlemen out there, they go a long way in reducing the risk of prostate cancer. And for the pizza lovers out there, the benefits increase when cooked and sprinkled with olive oil.
A favorite meal is chicken parmigiana, here is the simple recipe.
Boneless Chicken breast
Romano or Parmesan cheese
Bread Crumbs (Or Toast)
Warm oven at 350 degrees.
Whip out a frying pan, add a dash of virgin olive oil and let frying pan warm up for a couple of minutes.
Take chicken and brown sufficiently at medium heat.
Once done, bread the chicken (or toast the bread, crunch it up and use that instead).
Take a casserole dish, put in chicken, cover with generous portion of tomato sauce and grate mozzarella cheese on top. Then take Romano or Parmesan cheese and sprinkle over the sauce.
Cover, put in oven for 30-45 minutes.
This will be more than enough to satisfy your hunger, impress people and will not hurt your wallet as much as eating out. For added effect, 15 minutes before you decide to take the chicken out of the oven, take a French baguette, cut in half (the way you would if you were to make a submarine) and add garlic butter. Wrap in aluminum foil, toss in oven.
Take both out and enjoy...
