Health Benefits

Chicken breast meat is believed to pack in lots of proteins. It is low in fat and sodium content. They are also low-carb foods and can be added to a variety of dishes thanks to their versatility.

Shallots are rich in flavonoids which are antioxidants that are also found in fruits and vegetables. Flavonoids in shallots help reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Pasta, especially whole wheat pasta can provide you with nearly one-fourth of your daily fiber requirements per cup.
