Eating clean; balsamic chicken with peppers.



Eating clean seems to be getting more and more popular as many people rave about the results. I am one of them so I thought I would start sharing my recipes we use all the time and love. I try to keep my costs down to show that eating clean and healthy doesn't have to be expensive. Even if you are not eating clean 100% of the time or at all, they are all yummy, delicious recipes that are great if you're trying to lose weight or just get a bit healthier. This balsamic chicken is one of my favourites, I'm not usually a fan of balsamic vinegar so I wasn't sure if I'd like it but I don't know how it tastes as good as it does! I serve ours with either brown rice or wholewheat couscous. Next time, we are going to try it with just a salad!
