Here’s a tip: to make a 3-4 oz. piece of chicken thigh healthier and less calories tear off the skin before cooking. You’re only looking at about 109 calories. Add some salt and pepper. Accompany it with a side, 1/2 cup, of frozen (heated) vegetables. You can add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to give them more taste with a little salt. This dinner yesterday was very simple but heart healthy. You can add 1/2 of a wheat bun on the side to get a grain/bread and you’re running at about: 350 calories (this is including the one tblspn. of vegetable oil). Clearly, it wouldn’t hurt to have a second 3-4 oz. piece of chicken thigh or another half cup of mixed veggies!🥕🌽🌱
