Tips for lowering points

The only ingredients with points in this recipe are avocado and rice. You can cut down on the avocado, but it’s such a good healthy fat, I would eat it anyway.

Change the rice to cauliflower rice which is zero points and your serving is just 3 points. Add a few more ounces of zero point chicken breast if you want to stay full longer.

  • 6 ounces boneless marinated skinless chicken breast,

  • ½ cup white canned beans
  • ½ cup canned corn

  2. Preheat a grill pan, send the chicken into it and fry for about 5-7 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove from grill pan and let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. Mix the cooked rice with lime juice, chopped herbs, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix.

Marinades or seasoned liquids that foods are soaked in to add flavor are favorable to a healthy eating plan. They ad add flavor without racking up calories. Because only a small amount of the marinade is actually absorbed (most of it remains in the container) marinating is a very smart way to make a healthy dinner.

Marinade for chicken:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Add your chicken breast and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 mins. Several hours is better.

2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
½ teaspoon paprika
½ tsp ground cumin
¼ teaspoon chili powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp dried oregano
a pinch of salt and pepper
