6 Weeks to Summer Recipe 4: BBQ Chicken Flat Bread

Again I’ll share another INCREDIBLE lunch or light dinner option from my fave nutritionist Mark MacDonald.  Author of the powerful book, Body Confidence, Mark shares the science behind blood sugar stabilization and makes sense of how to eat balance meals that are simple, delicious and affordable.  Nutrition shouldn’t make you crazy, it shouldn’t be so far off the family menu, and it shouldn’t stress you out.

Try this simple recipe, directly from the Venice Nutrition website:
