Welcome to July’s good4u Health Hotline Magazine. This month, we’re focusing on the endocrine system and some of the chemical endocrine disruptors that we encounter every day. To support a healthy endocrine system, you might want to read up on July’s featured supplement, lutein. Our organic of the month is the nutrient-dense zucchini. We’re highlighting this veggie with a tasty lemon parsley pesto with tomatoes zoodle recipe, perfect for a light and filling summer meal. Aside from educating our readers on all things good4u, this month we’re making everyone’s mouth water with our summer recipes for ginger kombucha marinated chicken and veggies over cauliflower rice, niçoise salad, and BLT salad bowl. Can’t wait to start cooking? Neither can we. Enjoy!
Start marinating the chicken before you leave for work in the morning so when you get home, you’ll be able to quickly throw together a super flavorful, crowd-pleasing meal. It’s loaded with veggies too, but you won’t hear any complaints, since grilling brings out their best. Serve it all over a bed of simple cauliflower rice for a complete meal.
Note: If you do not have a grill basket, cut the onions into ½-inch rounds and the zucchini and summer squash lengthwise into ¼-½-inch slices. Toss with marinade and coconut oil as directed above. Carefully place the vegetables on the grill so they do not fall through the grates. Use tongs to carefully turn them about halfway through cooking time.
This recipe takes the classic BLT sandwich and turns it on its head. All of the BLT flavors you love, plus some, but without the bread! It’s super easy to make, and the bacon, lettuce, and tomato combined with fresh avocado and hard-boiled eggs make this salad deliciously satisfying, and filling too!
