MY HEALTHY DINNER - PAN GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST WITH VEGETABLES AND ORGANIC SPRING MIX SALAD (no sodium diet)

Looks yummy right? and the taste is out of this world!!! If you don't believe me try It for your self!

PAN GRILLED CHICKEN BREAST
Heat the grill pan. Grease the pan with non salted butter or few drops or olive oil. Place the chicken breast (skin removed)on the pan. Grill each side of the chicken breast around 1o-15 minutes (depends on how thick the breast is). (At the same time, in a separate pan saute the vegetables) When chicken is done, season with garlic powder and lemon-pepper.

-SAUTEED BABY ZUCCHINI AND ORANGE BELL PEPPERS-
-SAUTEED FRESH CARROTS , SWEET ONION AND BROCCOLI-

SEARED POTATOES

Place 3 to 4 potatoes into a safe microwaveable dish( after well washed ) for 10 minutes; you will only need one for your self, but it's always nice to make extra for family members just in case they crave your food... Let cool for few minutes; onto a hot frying pan heat few drops of olive oil ; slice the potato; sear potato slices for 1 minute on each side until golden brown; remove from heat; sprinkle with pepper and garlic powder.

SPRING MIX SALAD

This Spring Mix Salad comes already mixed; I just added some cucumber, green onion and orange bell pepper, and for taste 1 tablespoon of Light Italian Salad Dressing plus 1/4 freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Sorry, no dessert (((:

I had a 8 oz. glass of freshly made juice:
1 carrot,
1/2 apple,
1/2 slice pineapple,
1/2 orange;

... AND I FEEL GREAT!!!!

LOW CALORIE TUNA SANDWICH (no sodium diet)

Hello everyone who wants to shed a few pounds in one week!
It's not easy or tasty but it's healthy and the result is unbelievably amazing: 1/2 lb. per day! with no exercising ... sound good enough?

The following recipe is my own creation and I have created the whole day's menu (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between). It's my 3rd day of healthy eating and let me tell you, it works. My new healthy eating habit consists of a LOW SODIUM diet. You can eat everything you want but with NO SALT ADDED!!!

There's no particular recipe to follow, you can use whatever you have on hand, just DON'T ADD ANY SALT!! Use garlic powder, pepper, vinegar, lemon, (the use of lemon cut out your cravings for salt) all kinds of spices you like with no added salt. Once you get used to the taste, you will wonder how you could ever have over done it in the first place.

I will be posting more of my HEALTHY RECIPES, just to give you an idea, but feel free to make your own creations! Just remember, NO SODIUM/SALT! Good luck and make it a HEALTHY YEAR!

2 slices whole wheat toast;
5 oz.(142 g) Chunk Lite Tuna - in water;
