Roast chicken – low fat , low carbs with vegetables

Sorry I haven’t been posting lately, but work has been too full on, and I have been too tired to post. Coming home eating something and watching my new addiction – homeland! So today I’m posting a couple of dishes to make up for it
Chicken thighs with no skin baked in the oven with olive oil, garlic, chili flakes, black pepper, salt and oregano till golden brown. I served it with a papaya, avocado, cucumber and olives salad. I made a light stew with spinach, mushrooms, fresh tomatoes and onion ( seasoning to taste, the usual) 2 m with the wok Enjoy! Lots of veggie goodness plus the protein from the chicken to keep you full. Low carb #grainfree –
Tomatoes are better for you cooked than raw –> the levels of antioxidants and lycopenes increase and makes it easier to be absorbed by the body. Also tomatoes (raw) should always be eaten with some kind of healthy fat (olive oil) -they are fat soluble anti oxidants – to make sure the antioxidants get taken up effectively in the digestive tract.

Ultimamente nao tenho postado as minhas receitas porque tenho trabalhado imenso e andava demasiado cansada. Chegava a casa comia algo e via a minha nova serie favorita – homeland. Mas agora ja estou com horarios normais, por isso hoje vou colocar 2 receitas!
Coxa de galinha sem pele, assada no forno com pimenta, oregaos, sal, chili, azeite e alho ate douradas. Acompanhei com um estufado bem leve de cogumelos, espinafres, cebola e tomates frescos ( tempero q.b.) 2 minutos no wok E uma salada de papaya, abacate, pepino e azeitonas. Um jantar cheio de vegetais, logo muitas vitaminas e minerais + proteina da carne para ajudar a saciar.
A melhor maneira de consumir os tomates é cozinhada, ao contrario da maioria das frutas e vegetais, quando se cozinha os tomates aumenta-se os anti oxidantes e lycopenes ( o que dà ao tomate a cor vermelha). Quando se consome tomates crus, deve-se acompanhar sempre por uma gordura saudavel, como o azeite, pois os tomates sao um antioxidante lipossolúvel e necessita dessa gordura para ser absorvido pelo aparelho digestivo.
