What's in it for you?

Skinless, boneless chicken breasts are nearly pure protein--super lean and not so mean. You can fix them at least one million ways. So keeping a couple cooked chicken breasts in the fridge can keep you in healthy lunches and snacks for a week! Grapes are a natural sweet, low in calories and high in fiber.

Chef's tip:

A standard serving of meat is three ounces, cooked. But how do you know how many servings of meat you have on your plate? One quick rule of thumb: a serving of meat is about the same size as a deck of cards.
