Healthy Meal: Chicken Alfredo
Healthy Leftover Idea: Tossed Chicken Salad

If you love pasta and chicken, here’s an easy way to enjoy both at the same time. Best yet, when you maintain an appropriate portion size, you will have a meal that’s right around 400 calories. Remember to drink water with your meal so you don’t add unnecessary calories to the total.

Focus Exercise: The Push-up
