This would be my favourite topic!) Za’atar (or zaatar)—a Middle-Eastern spice blend that’s a mix of thyme, sumac, salt, sesame seeds and sometimes other herbs—gives this sheet-pan roast chicken recipe tons of flavor. Chicken tenders and pretrimmed green beans make this healthy dinner super-fast. You will need:1 medium navel orange,1 pound trimmed green beans,1 medium red onion, halved and sliced,1/2 cup Kalamata or Castelveltrano olives,2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil,2 tablespoons dry white wine -Ecco Domani Wine Pinot Grigio and Liberty Creek Wine Chardonnay,1/4 teaspoon salt,1/2 teaspoon ground pepper, divided
1 pound chicken tenders,1 tablespoon za’atar (see Tip),1 cup low-sodium chicken broth,2/3 cup whole-wheat couscous.
PREPARATION
Position rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 450°F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
Grate 2 teaspoons zest from orange. Slice 1/2 inch off the ends and squeeze juice from them into a medium saucepan; add the zest. Set aside.
Cut the rest of the orange in half, then cut into 1/4-inch slices. Toss in a large bowl with green beans, onion, olives, oil, wine, salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread the mixture in an even layer on the prepared pan. Toss chicken with za’atar in the bowl, then place on top of the green bean mixture.
Roast on the bottom rack until the green beans are tender and the chicken is no longer pink in the middle, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, add broth and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Serve with the chicken and vegetables.

Hi everybody) After a busy day working hard, a fine dinner is your just reward and deserved pleasure. When you are rushed for time you may not devote much time to enjoying a fine meal that can give you pleasure and nutrition both. You may buy a takeaway dinner or choose to dine in a restaurant. :D :D Your dinner should comprise of ingredients that not only help build tissues and energize you but also serve to keep your digestive tract healthy besides keeping your weight under control. ;) ;) It does seem a bother to plan on putting together nutritious yet appetizing dinners but at the end of the day, you will be glad you put in that extra effort.

Agree! We should eat healthy! Like a car, your brain needs quality fuel to run efficiently. When it comes to your job, working more efficiently can help you earn more, since high achievers are usually first in line for promotions and raises. Nessel says her clients frequently experience increased focus shortly after improving their diets.How much can eating healthy help? One 2012 study published by Population Health Management found that eating an unhealthy diet puts you at a 66% increased risk of productivity loss. Another study in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that an unhealthy diet represented the highest risk for low productivity out of 19 possible risk factors, including lack of exercise, chronic pain and financial instability.

It is very important to know what you eat and to it healthy. Even your mood can depend on what you eat. What you eat has an impact on your brain, including the parts that regulate mood. Although there is no single food that acts as a proven antidepressant, maintaining stable blood sugar through regular, proper nutrition will help you feel better overall on most days. We should always be careful and check the things we are going to put in our mouth. :roll: :) Want to look good and stay healthy - eat healthy then. And it is not about whether it is popular or not - it is right thing to do

well, you know i am not such a huge fan of all those healthy dinners and so on, but sometimes we search different recepes and do it. it's fun, by the way to do it together. for example the last one - Chicken Breast With Shaved Brussels Sprouts. Broccoli and Brussels sprouts are loaded with cancer-preventing phytonutrients. This dish is very lean: 309 calories and 3.2 grams of saturated fat. It also packs potassium, which helps keep your blood pressure down. and we spent only an hour doing, but how great it was when we did it all together)

i am not a very big fan of cooking but till i prefer to eat healthy food. i do not want to have problems with my stomach and i think that it is better to eat something light.try making salads and keep it sealed in plastic containers before you go to work. cobb salads are great and it is filling. If you can make fried rice, it’s great as a late night meal and it’s fast! you just have to have the rice precooked the night before. you can also precook meats, seal it real good in the fridge and cook it up when you get home. that is it.
