Chicken kebab

This recipe is full of ultra digestible proteins perfect for optimizing performance during training. It is also a low-calorie dish ideal for those who are in the first phases of healthier eating for summer body preparation. Today's recipe tells you how to combine two power house ingredients for sport and health: chicken and courgettes.

Chicken is a lean meat, it is versatile, everyone likes it and it can be cooked very easily. The second, equally simple in use, is characterized by the high water content and virtually no glycemic contribution, which make it one of the plants with the lowest caloric content.

In the almost complete absence of sugars and fats, the risk in the kitchen can be the compromise on taste that can sometimes leave us feeling dissatisfied. Not to mention the risk of giving in to the temptation of “comforting” foods to make up for the perceived loss in taste.

In these cases, the solution is to get creative: if the boiled chicken is tasteless or if it is grilled and it becomes too dry – try a marinade based on low-fat yogurt and herbs. You’ll need to cook them in the oven which will also help the meat to remain succulent, slightly moist and tasty. The courgettes, in the same way gives the best of itself if roasted rather than dipped in boiling water.

For a further boost of 0 calorie flavor that also allows you to cut back on salt, we recommend these herbs: chopped rosemary and thyme release their essential oils during cooking giving off an aroma which helps you think that there will be something good on the plate.

Another fundamental element to avoid the "punitive" effect consists in the presentation: a skewer that alternates between chicken and courgette cut into thick slices, for example, gives the dish a more fun and very palatable appearance.

And the detox day immediately becomes a breeze.
