I use Zite(kick ass app for surfing web articles in a newspaper format), which brought up a recipe from Men’s Health, http://cookthis.menshealth.com/recipes/cook-chicken-fajitas. The recipe however, goes on to ask and answer a question:
“…why do Chili’s, Chevys, Applebee’s, and Baja Fresh all serve versions with more than 1,000 calories? Fattier cuts of meat, oversize tortillas, and hulking condiment trays are to blame.”
The recipe itself is healthy, but then they end by recommending that you “Serve with warm tortillas, guacamole, salsa, and cheese”, thereby, making the meal, yet again, unhealthy. Why unhealthy? The easiest way to jack up your blood sugar and require tons of fat building insulin is to eat tortillas, the flour kind does the most damaage to my blood sugar levels; corn tortillas also screw up my sugars, just not as bad.
So on that note, yesterday I decided to knock out the recipe and it turned out great!
No tortillas or cheese of course. I made a little more than the recipe called for, and also added a ton more veggies(along with the broccoli). I don’t count calories, but my blood sugar was hardly affected at all after eating this meal, so eat up!
