Description:Here’s a nutrient-rich meal called Chicken Broccoli Stir Fry, containing high levels of vitamin A, 5 grams of dietary fiber, 28 grams of protein, and only 2 grams of saturated fats. It would make a terrific choice as a meal, or a side dish over foods that are calorie-dense, higher in saturated fats and sodium. The recipe calls for boneless chicken breast, brown rice, broccoli, snow peas, cabbage, sesame seeds, low-sodium soy sauce, orange juice, canola oil, and cornstarch.
Maintain calorie balance over time to achieve and sustain a healthy weight. People who are most successful at achieving and maintaining a healthy weight do so through continued attention to consuming only enough calories from foods and beverages to meet their needs and by being physically active. To curb the obesity epidemic and improve their health, many Americans must decrease the calories they consume and increase the calories they expend through physical activity.
