Many people think aging is all about family genetics, but that’s just not the case. Research has shown that lifestyle factors – diet, exercise, smoking and other harmful behaviors – play a much greater role on physical aging than genetics.

As we start the new year, the chefs at Bethany Village would like to share a delicious recipe to bring color and health to your winter. Avocados contain more potassium than bananas and are high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Peppers are one of the highest dietary sources of Vitamin C and are rich in many other vitamins, including A. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • Mexican seasoning packet or blend of your choice
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • I ripe avocado
  • Romaine or red leaf lettuce

Directions

  1. Coat uncooked chicken breasts in Mexican seasonings at least 1 hour before preparing and refrigerate. Slice chicken breasts or dice if you prefer.
  2. Slice peppers and peel and slice avocado.
  3. In a pan over medium heat, sauté chicken in vegetable oil and garlic for 5 to 10 minutes depending on amount. Remove chicken from heat and add peppers to the pan. Sauté peppers until slightly translucent. Should still remain firm to the touch.
  4. In a bowl, toss chicken, peppers, avocado and tomatoes. Spoon on top of shredded lettuce. Top with dressing of your choice. Bethany Village recommends a blend of salsa and ranch dressing.
