Banish hunger with this protein-packed recipe that'll feed your muscles and satisfy your taste buds with an array of delicious flavors!
Who doesn't love the classic flavor of succulent Kung Pao chicken? If you're anything like me, the spicy concoction of garlic, aromatic ginger, red chili sauce, and rice vinegar is enough to make your mouth water.
But, while it packs quite the savory punch, this recipe is about more than just satisfying your taste buds—it's also about making healthy eating more delicious!
This recipe calls for vinegar, which goes a long way toward doubling your health benefits. Research published in the Journal of Food Sciences found that different types of vinegar offer various benefits, including improved cardiovascular health and blood pressure, increased vigor after exercise, and possibly even appetite control.
The nuts in this dish are also more than just a garnish. Research in the British Journal of Nutrition found that tree nuts, such as cashews, may help lower your cholesterol, blood pressure, and inflammation.
Cashews in particular are loaded with magnesium, a mineral that may help prevent muscle cramps.
Live well, train hard, and eat heartier, my friends!
