One of my favorite "Anti-inflammatory" dinners


Today I'm sharing with you another one of my favorite "anti-inflammatory" dinners.


But first . . . did you know . . . that if the body is overrun with "inflammation" . . . it "CANNOT" absorb "nutrients" from the food we eat???


And guess what . . . all those vitamin, minerals and hundreds of pills we're taking to make us healthy . . . also CANNOT be absorbed into the body "IF" there's too much "inflammation" in the body


So if you're eating a healthy meal with lots of nutritional value . . . but . . . it's not an "anti-inflammatory" meal . . . then all your efforts to do the body good . . . may not be working because the body can't absorb the nutrients.


So let's check out an "anti-inflammatory" meal . . .


"Salt and Vinegar Chicken with Brussels sprouts and Sweet potatoes"


Ingredients: 1 serving

4 ounces of range-free organic chicken breast (no skin) cubed or whole

1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil

Dash of Himalayan salt and black pepper

1 cup of organic Brussels sprouts

1/4 cup of chopped up or ringed red onions

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Dash of Himalayan salt and black pepper

2 medium sweet potatoes


Chicken sauce:

1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar with "mother"

1/8 teaspoon of fresh or dried dill

1/8 teaspoon of organic ground garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon of yacon syrup


Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Cover a baking sheet with tinfoil


Instructions:

Take a fork and poke some holes in the top of the sweet potatoes

Place potatoes on the baking sheet and cook in the over for about 10 minutes

In a mixing bowl, place Brussels sprouts, onions and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix well.

Then place them on the same baking sheet as the potatoes and put them back in the oven.

Now . . . in the same mixing bowl. place the chicken, 1 teaspoon olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well and place them on the same baking sheet as the potatoes.

Put back in the oven again

Cook for about 20 more minutes or until the center of the chicken reaches a temperature of 160 degrees and the veggies are tender


While that's all cooking . . .

In a small mixing bowl, mix vinegar, dill, garlic and yacon syrup. Mix well

Drizzle over chicken and Brussels sprout and cook for another 5 minutes


Then serve and enjoy!


So why is this such a healthy meal???


Well . . . Chicken protein hydrolysates, which are filled with amino acids (good for you and the immune system) have "anti-inflammatory" effects on our health


Brussels sprouts are also "anti-inflammatory" and can lower the levels of inflammatory markers in the blood.


Red onion and garlic contain powerful antioxidants and compounds that fight inflammation, decrease triglycerides, reduce cholesterol levels, reduce high blood pressure and protect against blood clots


Apple cider vinegar with "mother" reduces gut inflammation and helps to prevent the overgrowth of the "bad" bacteria I'm always talking about


Dill is known for having anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, carminative, aromatic and galactagogue activity.


Yacon syrup has many positive health benefits like anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also can lower blood pressure, boost liver health, reduce cholesterol, improve bone health, help with weight control and prevents diabetes and regulate blood sugar.


And finally . . . sweet potatoes contain many nutrients but they're also packed with medicinal benefits like anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic and anticancer properties.


So all these ingredients are "anti-inflammatory", "antifungal” “antibacterial”, "organic and non-GMO" and/or "non or low lectin". And therefore . . . "COMPLIANT"


What more could we ask for???


And 4 ounces of chicken, 1 cup of Brussels sprouts, 1 cup of sweet potato, onion, garlic and yacon syrup was only 591 calories of goodness!


So tomorrow we'll continue with another "key" to eating correcting to control "inflammation".
