Looking for more quick healthy recipes to get you through the week?

I’ve been working hard to improve my health and fitness for well over a decade. And I’m always looking for new ways to better myself, both inside and out. Diet plays a big role in that, and over the years, I’ve tried a ton of healthy recipes – some good, and some bad.

Today I’m offering up 3 of my best quick and healthy recipes. These recipes are great for supporting an active and healthy lifestyle, including one in which burning fat is a major goal. I generally adopt a whole foods diet approach, which simply means that I like to stick to natural, fresh ingredients as much as possible, without all the additives and preservatives. This is a useful approach for any healthy lifestyle.

As you’ll see, all of these recipes are packed full of fresh whole ingredients! So let’s get to the recipes…

Ginger & Cilantro Pesto Chicken

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup of green onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of fresh cilantro
  • 7 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/3 cup of pine nuts
  • 2 to 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • Whole wheat pasta of choice

Directions: In a food processor, blend ginger, green onion, garlic, cilantro, olive oil, and salt until smooth and there are no visible chunks. Add pine nuts and blend again quickly until nuts are chopped and mixed well. Brush pesto onto chicken breasts and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Cook pasta until desired consistency, drain, and add remaining pesto before heating on low. Serves 2 to 4 people.

HEALTH TIP: For an even bigger metabolism-boosting effect, try substituting the olive oil with the super fat-burning Nutiva Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil.
