Stuffed Chicken Breasts With Spinach, Tomatoes and Cheese

Once I was sitting across a person with some grey mass on the plate for food. I was told that food shouldn’t be tasty and look good this way person consumes less.  Definitely I wouldn’t eat that but I disagree with that approach entirely.

If you are on a diet, trying to loose weight or trying to eat healthy, your food shouldn’t be less tasty or less appealing. It is only gives you an opportunity to experiment, find different solution and still be satisfied in the process.

So here’s an idea for a family dinner.  It is rich in flavor and nutrition and will keep stomach full for long time.
