A great source of protein, chicken is low in fat, cholesterol and sodium. Choose lean ham, for the least about of fat, but try to keep your diet varied for interest. The ham adds a flavor sensation that the chicken alone just can’t provide. Portion control is key, but you can enjoy a guilt-free meal that includes flour and bread crumbs. When it comes to a lifestyle dedicated to women’s fitness, flavorful food is a mainstay.
