The benefits of eating a grilled chicken sandwich

Written by sandraluis. Posted in Blog

Grilled chicken is delicious and helps you maintain a healthy lifestyle. A grilled chicken sandwich is a good source of protein, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals, according to the experts. It is also healthier than a fried chicken sandwich because grilling uses less oil than deep-frying, meaning fewer calories and fat in the final product. We can take it a step further: create a healthier grilled chicken sandwich by utilizing nutrient-dense ingredients whenever possible and monitoring the use of unhealthy toppings and condiments.       Chicken is a good source of protein, B vitamins and minerals such as iron, phosphorus and selenium. Protein is important for repairing and maintaining tissue, building a strong immune system and developing lean muscle mass. B vitamins are essential for metabolism, normal nerve function and healthy red blood cells. Iron helps carry oxygen throughout the body; phosphorus works with calcium to build strong bones and teeth; and selenium strengthens the immune system and helps with thyroid function. Federal dietary guidelines recommend eating lean proteins that are lower in fat and calories, because excess fat and calorie intake can lead to weight gain, obesity and obesity-related conditions like diabetes, cancer and heart disease. A chicken breast is the leanest cut on a chicken because it is naturally lower in calories and fat than chicken legs and thighs. Removing the skin also dramatically decreases the calories and fat. via Healthy Eating
