Delicious Foods With Only Whole Foods
Last week, we touched on the benefits of a Whole Foods Diet. Now that you are more familiar with what this means, what are you supposed to eat and what can you prepare that will be well received? Here is an easy dinner recipe that the whole family will enjoy. You can also use the leftover chicken (if there is any) in a chicken noodle soup, tacos, or other recipes that call for chicken. It has a great citrus flavor that is very subtle.
Whole Foods Recipe: Orange Sage Chicken
1 whole chicken (4-6 lbs)
2 TBSP fresh parsley, chopped
8 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP olive oil
1 large shallot, chopped
2 tsp fresh sage, chopped
2 navel oranges
Spray crock-pot with non-stick cooking spray. Rinse chicken, removing neck and giblets if necessary. Place chicken in the crock-pot. In a medium sized bowl, mix together parsley, garlic, olive oil, shallot, and sage. Slice navel orange into 1/8ths. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 an orange in the bowl with the spices, mix well. Set orange slices aside. Put about 1/3 of spice mix inside the chicken. Rub the rest of the spices on the outside of the chicken. Place a few orange slices inside the chicken, and spread the rest over the top in the crock-pot. Cook on low for 6 hours.
Dinner With Whole Foods Only
This can be served with a side of wild rice or other nutritious grain like quinoa or bulgar. Vegetable options can help brighten up the meal as well. We would recommend serving this with a side of steamed asparagus or zucchini to help add that much needed color. If you are not sure what vegetables to serve with what, experiment! Finding different recipes online will help add flavor and texture to vegetables that you may not have enjoyed before.
