Lemon & Thyme Chicken Drumsticks with Veggie Skewers

By BePure

We like to think of meals that have a high-quality protein, lots of colourful vegetables and leafy greens to be ‘longevity meals’.

The protein helps to stabilise blood sugar levels for improved hormone balance, energy, insulin sensitivity, mood, and weight management, as well as providing satiation. 

And the colourful vegetables and leafy greens provide essential nutrients that our body needs to function day-to-day with energy and vitality. 

This is a meal the whole family will love - and it is really supportive for our postmenopausal women who thrive on longevity meals like this one - simply add a side of leafy greens for a quick and easy dinner.
