Top 5 ELC Meals To Help You Through The Summer
As we've preached for years now, you don't need to starve yourself on some unrealistic fad diet if your goal is to look good throughout the summer. The secret to staying in shape throughout the summer is to continue to eat a well-balanced diet. As the summer months kick into high-gear, the high-calorie dishes seem less appealing, making it easier to make better food choices. There are plenty of light and refreshing Elite Lifestyle Cuisine options that will help you continue to succeed and... keep you out of the hot kitchen! Here are our Top 5 Suggestions. Chicken Skewers Perfect for the season, our natural chicken breasts are marinated and placed on skewers with mushrooms, peppers and onions, served with a blend of white and wild rice. Who doesn't love having Chicken Skewers or "kabobs" for lunch in the heart of summer? Turkey and Egg White Quiche Our delicious Egg White Quiche is flavored with red and green bell peppers, turkey bacon and onions, baked and accompanied by roasted Yukon gold and purple potatoes. It is quickly becoming our most popular breakfast item! Chicken Mexicana Our Chicken Mexicana is a year-round favorite, but most enjoyable during the summer months. The red and green peppers are complimented with red onions and corn. Add in black beans, fresh cilantro and limes and you have hit the proverbial "homerun". Try this lower-carb favorite later in the evening! Honey Ginger Roasted Root Medley Completely vegan, our Honey Ginger Root Medley features delicious parsnips, turnips, beets, carrots and yams. Simply roasted in ginger and honey then seasoned with sea salt, black pepper and fresh rosemary, this delightful medley is light, delicious and easily digestible for a late-evening meal or a mid-day treat! Pineapple Apricot Cod One of the leanest of all white fish, our Pineapple Apricot Cod is a perfect summer option! Its balanced macronutrient profile makes it a perfect lunch or dinner option. The cod is simply broiled with a touch of paprika; while the brown rice is cooked in all-natural pineapple juice and finished with our apricot glaze. Add in some steamed green beans and you just might find your newest ELC favorite!
