Hi Julie,

 

This is Alexandra with Nutrition Support.

 

Here are my recommendations J

· Serves 4

· Per serving: 1 leaner, ~3 green, 3/4 healthy fat*, and ~3 condiments

·          

· 3 cups zucchini noodles or cooked spaghetti squash

· 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

· 1 1/4 lb raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into cubes

· ½ cup chopped green scallions

· 1 medium bell pepper, sliced

· 1 tbsp. chili powder

· 1 tbsp. cumin

· 2 tsp. dried oregano

· 1 15-oz. can fire-roasted tomatoes

· 1/2 c. low-sodium chicken broth

· 3/4 c. unsweetened almond or cashew milk

· 1/2 c. reduced fat shredded Cheddar

· 1/2 c. reduced fat shredded pepper jack

*Technically there are only ¾ of a healthy fat serving per person, but that is actually the perfect amount since 3 of the 4 lean proteins in this recipe are “leaner” and 1 of the 4 is a lean (which does not require a healthy fat). Just wanted to clarify.

Enjoy!
