Ever feel like your eating plan is slightly off track? (or completely derailed?) That's pretty much how I feel most days. Sometimes if I find myself getting into bad eating habits, all it takes is one super healthy - quality meal to get me back on the right track.
There is no better "get me back on track" dinner to me than a delicious, juicy grilled chicken breast with a side of baked sweet potatoes fries and a green salad. Protein, leafy vegetables and a starchy vegetable a perfect well balanced dinner.
This meal just goes to show that a healthy dinner doesn't have to take a great deal of time or preparation. I little planning goes a long way for this meal. Spending a few extra minutes in the morning to get the chicken ready to grill will pay off when your getting hungry for dinner and tempted to snack on some not-so-nutritious junk food. My trick is to use thin sliced chicken breasts that cook in about 10 minutes.

Eating this dinner made me feel like I hit my own personal eating habits reset button. I loved this dinner and if this is what healthy tastes like - I can definitely get into some better "healthy" eating habits. As warmer weather approaches, you may want to fire up your own grill and give this yummy dinner a try.
