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 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.
