If you are a hardcore athlete or weightlifter, it is important that you eat a lot of healthy food such as chicken and veggies. But if you find yourself getting bored of or intimidated by the thought of eating so much chicken, you might be forgetting fun recipes like chicken noodle soup and chicken enchiladas to make from leftover chicken breast and rotisserie chicken. Chicken doesn’t have to be boring at all if you just put a little love and fun into your heart and into your meal. Here are 4 leftover chicken recipes that will be sure to blow your mind!
As a tip, it can be good to get chicken meat that comes with the bones and collect the bones for broth. Bone broth is a great way to replenish the body and refuel its need for the rich minerals that come from breaking down the bones. It helps to recharge the adrenal system and keep an athlete pumped up and ready for another intense training session. It is also great at helping people recuperate and now you’re using every part of the chicken from the meat to the bones! Decreasing food waste is great for you and for our environment.
Poultry is easier to digest than red meat and is probably in the top ten most versatile foods that exist. Curry soup, salad with chicken, chicken caesar (in all its forms), easy chicken taco, Thai chicken—you could name chicken recipes all day off the top of your head and not run out. It is high in protein and is a decent source of saturated fat. That high level of protein can be dehydrating though so make sure to drink lots of water and get lots of magnesium and fiber through eating vegetables. Dark leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables are great for that which include broccoli, Brussel sprouts, spinach, and cabbage.
