Healthy Pan Fried Chicken & Roasted Veggies | Complete Meal For Lunch Or Dinner

Healthy & comforting lunch or dinner…

Healthy eating is a priority for me, it’s all about balance. Being a food blogger I enjoy trying different food & cuisine, but that doesn’t mean that I gobble up whatever comes my way.

I follow these:

Portion control, eat in moderation, balanced diet, workout & stay active.

I do have my cheat days as well, that’s when I indulge in whatever I crave. After that, I watch out on other days by eating a healthy & balanced diet.

I absolutely don’t believe in extreme diets like keto, paleo, etc; they are all fad diets. Of course, if any health issues we sometimes have to follow a certain strict diet. Otherwise, our body needs everything- carbs, fat, sugar & protein, everything in moderation though.

Sharing a healthy, filling & comforting lunch that can be whipped up pretty easily, can be also enjoyed for dinner.
