"It’s that time of year! The holidays are over and by “over” I mean all of our wonderful Christmas recipes, feasts, cookies, pastries and the like are put away for another year! With spring on the way, as hard as it is to envision at this point with all the snow and cold, it is time to start eating a little healthier, a little fresher! With that thought in mind, here is a healthy, low fat, low cholesterol recipe that is full of protein, vitamins and minerals. No better lean protein than boneless chicken breasts! Black olives are a good antioxidant and do contain fat, but it is the healthy monounsaturated type which promotes good cholesterol. Black beans are high in protein, iron, calcium for strong bones, and zinc. Also included is my favorite, dried cranberries, which contain fiber and antioxidants. Boneless chicken breasts marinated in olive oil and lemon juice, fresh veggies, black beans, dried cranberries and black olives! This is a simple and awesomely healthy meal for a quick weeknight dinner! Done in 20 minutes and you will be doing yourself a favor with this healthy, filling, low fat meal idea! How great is that? You can use any low fat dressing of your choice, although I prefer my salad either plain or drizzled with a touch of olive oil. Try this recipe for a low fat, low cholesterol meal! Simple, tasty and healthy! 2 to 3 large servings."
