repair - and low in fat. It also provides important B vitamins. The parsley and lemon juice in this dish help boost levels of vitamin C. Garlic can be very good for your health and immunity.

* 2 boneless chicken breasts, preferably free range or organic, skinned
* 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for greasing
* freshly squeezed juice half a lemon
* 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
* 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
* freshly ground black pepper
* large mixed salad or seasonal vegetables, to serve


Directions:
* Cut the chicken breast carefully horizontally almost all the way through the middle with a knife and open out. Place in a shallow dish and add the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley and garlic. Season with a little ground black pepper. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes.

* Lightly oil and preheat the Grill. Lift the chicken out of the marinade with a fork and shake off any excess. Place on the grill. Close the lid and grill for 3 minutes.

* Turn the chicken over,changing direction for nice grill marks and close the lid and grill for a further 2-3 minutes until it is thoroughly cooked and no pinkness remains. Remove from the grill and stand for 3 minutes. Serve with a large mixed salad or freshly cooked seasonal vegetables.

Body & Soul Wellness Fair - Vernon - March 2019


Wellness Tip
Lots of Diets
Did you know that 65 million Americans go on a weight loss diet each year? And that as many as 48 million Americans are on a diet on any given day? Try on this idea: Dieting is not the solution for being overweight or obese. At best, diets are only a very temporary fix. Adopting gradual, but sustainable improvements to your eating and exercise habits are what can last you a lifetime.

Recipe
Roast Turkey with Apple, Sausage, with Herb Stuffing
Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: Traditional roast turkey is still the dish of choice for most holidays and evokes images of celebrations with family and friends. This is the season for enjoying turkey.
Health Benefits of Turkey is that is a lean meat and is a very good source of protein. A four ounce serving provides 65% of the daily value for protein, along with 11% of the daily value for saturated fat, about half the amount of saturated fat found in red meat. The structure of the human body is built on protein. We use animal and plant sources of protein for our amino acids and rearrange the nitrogen to make the pattern of amino acids we require. Turkey is a very good source of selenium, B vitamin and niacin.
