Savory Tuscan Basil Chicken Pasta

Savory Tuscan Basil Chicken Pasta

Commercially-raised poultry often contains hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and other contaminates, all of which can be a potential health hazard.

While buying organic chicken may increase your grocery bill, the health benefits are definitely well worth it.  Not only is pasture-raised chicken meat leaner and more flavorful, it is also higher in vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids than its conventional counterpart.

So here¬†is a perfect busy-week-night meal, that features some tender and juicy chunks of organic chicken meat. ¬†it’s so quick and easy to make, and my husband and daughter devour it every time.

Hope you enjoy it too!

Smothered Mushrooms and Greens

Smothered Mushrooms and Greens

 
 
 
I love mushrooms, and I love greens. ¬†Kale however is the only green that’s a little bit harder for me to eat, so I have to find creative ways to prepare it. ¬†This dish definitely fits the bill. ¬†Packed full of nutrients, this can be a great side dish, or simply a quick and healthy lunch.
 
If you’re not so keen on kale, try swapping it out for swiss chard. ¬†The texture and flavor of swiss chard is much more subtle than kale, and even my toddler enjoys it!
 
And did you know that mushrooms contain some of the most powerful natural medicines on the planet? So pair some insanely healthy mushrooms with some vitamin-packed super greens and your body will certainly be thanking you!
