Today’s #healthychoice meal. A cup of grilled chicken pesto w/vegetables (145 calories)! A quarter cup of ‘minute’ brown rice (58 calories), and a chopped Roma tomato (17 calories). I love raw tomatoes!🍅 This lunch follows a heart-healthy ‘Mediterranean’ plan with a total of a low 220 calories you can’t go wrong. I guess the only downside (if there is one) would be the pasta combined with the brown rice. They are both considered ‘grains’ so that would account for two-grain servings for the day. More than enough. The chicken accounts for the protein and the tomato, the vegetable. Accompany this with some water to drink and you are on your way to living a healthier lifestyle! 🌾🍛🌿
