Chicken, Honey, and Rice: A Powerful Combination

By Brandi Goodman 

National Chicken Month, National Honey Month, and National Rice Month all get celebrated in September. Each of these things alone provide nutritional benefits that make them worthy of adding them to your menu. Combine them and you get a delightful combination that is highly beneficial to your health.

Health Benefits of Chicken

Chicken is a lean meat option that provides lots of protein. Choose it as one of your regular meat choices so you can maintain a healthy diet. Vitamin B6, selenium, and niacin are also found in the food. Your body needs these for various purposes, and chicken offers a large percentage of your daily required intake. To keep your calorie count down, you should really be eating a chicken breast that is about the size of the palm of your hand, or 3 to 4 ounces. 

Health Benefits of Honey

Not all versions of honey are created the same. Find an organic option and you'll be gaining antioxidants that can work to fight disease within the body. It is also an ideal sugar substitute that can sweeten your food without as many of the negative effects. Honey also offers antibacterial and antifungal properties. It can help to soothe sore throats, improve gut health, boost immunity, and heal wounds. 

Health Benefits of Rice

Brown rice is one of the best options since it is a whole grain. Use this instead of white when cooking for a more nutritious meal. If you hope to reduce your cholesterol, lower your risk for stroke, or prevent heart disease, eating more whole grains like brown rice can help. Selenium is found in brown rice, which aids in antioxidant production. There is also plenty of fiber and even protein, which will help to keep you full for longer. 

Combine the Three for a Delicious Recipe

Garlic honey chicken over rice is a delicious meal that allows you to combine these three ingredients into a nutritional dish. Cook chicken breast on the stove top in some extra virgin olive oil and garlic. Add low-sodium soy sauce and organic honey to create a unique flavor. Make some whole grain rice and start your plate before adding the flavored chicken to it. 

Celebrate these special observances by enjoying a meal that combines the three. You can also create dishes that involve these foods separately and enjoy a month full of favorites. Continue to consume these healthy food options throughout the rest of the year and thereafter and gain the many benefits they bring to the body.
