One-pot meals are the best, who wouldn’t agree? I’m still crazy about summer vegetables like zucchini and yellow squash so using them as a vehicle for seasonings and to complement a protein, just seemed like the appropriate action for a quick and healthy dinner. If you are running short on time during this week, this dish is a great staple you can put into your dinner rotation. It requires little prep and offers quality protein, B vitamins and lots of nutrients and antioxidants from the array of colorful veggies.
Zucchini: This summer squash boasts vitamin C, magnesium, and fiber. Grate into salads, make into zucchini bread or roast in the oven for a delicate and mild taste of summer.
Chicken: Chicken is an affordable source high quality, lean protein which boast vitamins like B6 that helps our bodies with a plethora of functions such as keeping our immunity strong, warding off depression and helping our body convert food into energy.
Rosemary: This pine-like flavor and pungent fragrance goes a long way when cooked with mild proteins like chicken, lamb or fish. Research suggests that rosemary boasts compounds that help stimulate the immune system and keep us healthy.
