Fresh, Fit & Fast

There is nothing more important than fresh ingredients when it comes to making a delicious meal. I can’t stress that enough especially when it comes to quick, healthy meals. It is the fresh parsley and lemon juice that really elevates this quick dinner from blah to amazing!

Today I visited Sid Wainer Gormet Outlet here in New Bedford and was completely blown away by the assortment of products. They have a whole entire room of cheese and a walk in refrigerator for customers to hand select their own locally grown organic produce. Needless to say, I will be back here time and time again!

My first visit to Sid Wainer's in New Bedford.

So today I was focusing on my paleo Lavender Vanilla Bean Scones, and wanted a quick fix for dinner, but still healthy! Here is what I came up with:

Lemon-Oregano Chicken and Veggies

1 lb chicken breast, cubed

2 T olive oil

1 T minced garlic

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 C fresh oregano, roughly chopped

1 steamer back frozen mixed veggies

juice of 1 fresh lemon


First, add olive oil and garlic to pan. Add chicken, salt and pepper, stirring around until chicken is almost fully cooked. Next add oregano, followed by mixed veggies (cooked according to microwave directions). Between stirring, squeeze lemon juice over pan.

Makes 3 servings. DELICIOUS!
