Not to mention that it’s a good liver detox recipe too! And perhaps, all the ingredients are already in your pantry – nothing fancy, just plain and simple ingredients.
Chicken is added in this recipe not only because of the high protein content and umami flavor it provides but also because it’s an excellent source of selenium. Selenium is a powerful mineral that helps boost metabolism, improve thyroid, and prevent any damages that are caused by oxidative stress– a great indication of a detox recipe! Even better, this recipe calls for boneless and skinless chicken breast as it’s lesser in cholesterol and saturated fat.
Nonetheless, veggies like cucumber, spinach, and carrots also add great amounts of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals, making this whole recipe a nutritional powerhouse. As a bonus, it only provides 9 grams of carbohydrates and 4 grams of sugar, making it perfect for those who are on a low-carb diet. It also provides 26 grams of protein, making it beneficial for those who are trying to lose weight, strength training, and improving their overall health. Happy Eating!
