9. Chomp on chicken to stay young

Chicken, again? Don’t feel bad about serving this standby — when you put it on the table, you’re holding up a stop sign to the aging process. Spice it up with metabolic seasonings and marinades.
You can make this simple meat taste very different every day of the week.

If you haven’t already discovered foil pocket or pouch baking, you should give it a go.
Make a foil pouch for your piece or pieces of chicken, add your chosen herbs and spices. Seal loosely- bake in the oven till cooked, juicy and tender. I batch cook 3 days worth at a time, store in the fridge till I need it. No more ‘ i don’t have time’ excuses.

Poultry is high in zinc and selenium, two minerals that balance hormones and promote collagen production.
It also defends against free radical damage, which harms cells and accelerates aging.

The result: you’re the spring chicken!

Sweet potatoes are great baked to go with salads, your BBQ meats or roast along side your Sunday joint.
