Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Chicken Easy Meal Prep Bowl: Full of Protein, Antioxidants and Nutrients! Low Carb (Keto/Paleo)

Let me show you how meal prepping makes for easy delicious and super healthy weeknight dinners! Studies say Turmeric has major health and brain benefits! It contains Curcumin, a very powerful anti inflammatory and antioxidant. Amongst many benefits, It’s said to boost brain function and improve skin health! Curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body, the experts say that combining it with black pepper boosts the absorption of Curcumin, foods are amazing! Throw in some of my delicious broccoli chips, roasted cauliflower and kimchi for a major health and skin boost!
