Try Something New

Try a new health recipe today, something with flavor from another country.  The first dish pictured has an Italian flair, since we are going with pasta.  I would recommend whole wheat past for this dish.  I always use EEOV (Rachael Ray) anytime I have to use an oil, I really like who light it is and it tastes great.  You can sub vinegar watered down for the white wine.  The horseradish gives a little kick, use more or less depending upon your taste.

4 chicken breasts, cut into chunks or strips
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup white wine
1 16-ounce box rotelle pasta, cooked
1 tablespoon toasted pine nuts
1 tablespoon basil, sliced into thin strips
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated 

Throw some pesto on there
Add the peppers:
12oz jar of roasted peppers
add water 1/4 cup or use juice from jar
1+ tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon of horseradish

Jamaican Jerk Chicken is a great island treat, very tastee and healthy dish.  Use fresh fruits and vegetables for this recipe, remember that canned pineapple is in syrup so there is added sugar.  Spritz the pineapple and pepper with EEOV and grill.  I oft times grill the chicken with the skin on, animal fat is good for you, however if you want take the skin off after words, this also helps if you overcook the chicken the skin will be burnt but the meat underneath will still be good.  Mix the Seasoning and oil to apply on chicken or just dry rub and use no oil.

4-6 chicken breasts or thighs
1.5 Tablespoons of Jerk Seasoning
1.5 Tablespoons of EEOV

Enjoy one of these Olympic inspired dishes while watching or re-enacting your favorite Olympic event.  This was seen on Runnersworld and modified to be a little more healthy.
