Eating Well Is NOT Easy

See what I mean:

Halloween candy on sale
Halloween Candy On Sale

My two favorite candies (I have a sweet tooth, not good for my mid-section goals, lol) were on sale at Giant.

$1 per bag – WHAT!? I put them in my cart, but after traversing a couple aisles and picking up the healthy and delicious foods I normally get (chicken, turkey, milk, eggs, etc…) – I decided to put the candy back.

Eating Well Is NOT THAT Hard

All it takes is the right combination of spices.

I do admit that cooking and cleaning take time and resources, but I think that if you enjoy cooking and cleaning up after yourself, then it’s absolutely worth it.

(Here is a discussion about cooking or eating out – go leave your opinion there, or comment below)

Anyway – I’m 50/50 – I love eating out because the food is delicious, but I also want to be healthy (aliment free) and live for a loooong time… so I tend to cook more often.

Does this not look delicious:

Spanish Chicken & Potatoes.

Ok, maybe the potatoes aren’t the best part, but it sure was yummy!

Eat well, live well.

Cooking Chicken & Chickpeas [VIDEO]

Cooking is so much fun.. especially when it’s super delicious 🙂

I admit, I’m a chicken guy – I definitely prefer chicken with the right spices and/or sauce over a hamburger. (don’t get me wrong, love a steak, especially filet’s and top cut sirloins).

One word: Costco.  When you’re witnessing in the video above is frozen chicken breasts and chickpeas.. both from Costco.  When combined.. the most delicious concoction is created!

Poking holes in the chicken is a little trick that does two things:

1 – Helps cook it faster

2 – Allows the spices and juices of the chickpeas (and vegetables) to enter the depths of the chicken

All and all, super delicious.. AND did I mention: HEALTHY!

Spices are awesome because at worst, the have sodium – but they don’t have fat or carbs (the two things that make you.. well, fat).

Some spices have been proven to help you fight cancer and increase your immune system (I don’t know the details of these, yet.)

I love cooking.. it’s fun, delicious, and can be healthy at the same time!
