Recipes Packed With Smart Nutrition

chfitness1How many people do you know that start up a diet program hoping to lose weight temporarily?

How many people want to get down to their ideal weight only to have it come piling back on shortly after they come off their diet protocol?

Pretty easy answer huh? NONE.

Who the heck wants to go through all that work only to have what you’ve done reappear?

People want a diet that is going to help them lose weight and keep it off for good, they want to make sure that they sustain that new lower weight for all of time to come.

They want a permanent weight loss solution and I am sure if you are reading this that’s exactly what you are looking for too.

Unfortunately, most diet plans actually work against your body and if anything only set you up to gain body weight in the future.

For permanent weight loss you need a new approach to your weight loss goals.

What you need to learn first is smart nutritional habits that will work with your body rather than against it. What you don’t need is to go on another very low calorie diet in order to lose weight, unless of course you want to invite yo-yo dieting into your life.

You need some recipes to get you going in the right direction…recipes that will help you to get started eating right.

Let’s start with breakfast…your most important meal of the day:

Apricot Chicken With Barleyapricot chicken

Chicken is a perfect source of lean protein to be adding to your diet and with the sweet taste of apricot for something totally unique and different, you can’t go wrong.

Try it with barley rather than traditional brown rice for something completely unique and different.


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 1/4 pounds), trimmed and tenders removed

3/4 tsp. salt, divided

1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

1 tbsp. olive oil

3/4 cup dry white wine

1 medium green onion, minced

4 fresh apricots, pitted and chopped

2 tbsp. apricot preserves

2 tsp. chopped fresh tarragon, or 1/2 teaspoon dried

2 cups prepared barley


Place chicken breasts in between two pieces of plastic wrap and then roll over with a rolling pin or meat mallet until they’re about ½ inch thick. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat and then add the chicken, cooking until no pink remains. Move to a plate, covering to ensure it stay swarm.

Next, remove the pan from the heat and add the green onion and wine. Return and cook over medium heat for about three minutes. Add in the apricots and cook until the fruit is tender but not soggy. To that, add the preserves and tarragon.

Place the chicken back in the pan and cook for another 2–3 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

Serve with the brown rice immediately.

Makes 4 servings.
