Chicken Breast, Sweet Potato and Apple Hash

This dish makes for a great lunch or dinner. You can eat it as a main dish, place it on top of salad greens, or place it in a grain-free protocol-friendly ‘wrap’. It’s also delicious topped with sliced avocado and a pinch of sea salt!

Consuming organic free-range chicken (along with other high quality proteins) can help stabilize your blood sugar, build lean muscle mass, and prevent and aid in treatment of mood disorders. Protein helps blunt the blood sugar spike during meals and snacks, regulating blood sugar and decreasing insulin secretion. This protects against blood sugar dysregulation disorders such as Type 2 Diabetes. Protein is required to build and maintain lean muscle mass so a diet adequate in high-quality protein can help prevent tissue breakdown and reduce the adverse effects of aging and chronic illness. Lastly, the building blocks of proteins (i.e. amino acids) are converted to neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin in the body. If high-quality protein intake is lacking or if there is poor protein digestion and/or absorption, insufficiency in amino acids can cause an imbalance or decline in neurotransmitters, leading to mood disorders such as depression.
