Eating well is important for everybody but, especially so if you have specific dietary requirements like ketgenic meals or gluten-free eating to combat autoimmune disease.
Eating should be a joy and cooking should not be a chore. Food is the best medicine and has been proven to reverse the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
Making your own meals has never been easier and I promise these grilled chicken skewers are one of the easiest recipes you will ever make.
There is no one trick to remember the simple technique to achieve these fabulous grilled chicken skewers. The best part you need to remember is to start with one piece of chicken, marinate it for 2–4 hours, and then grill it up for as long as needed to cook thoroughly.

I often have trouble finding the time to sit down and chop up meat before I roll it out, especially meat like chicken. With marinated chicken, I just pull the chicken out of the fridge an hour before grilling and set it aside.
I marinate the chicken overnight in the fridge. At the end of the day, I just pour some soy sauce and honey over the chicken so the marinade is all absorbed.
Now to the actual recipe. If you have an electric grill make sure you use medium heat and brown both sides of the chicken both on each side. You also want to make sure the chicken pieces are evenly grilled and taste great!
Time: 30 mins
- ⅓ cup mixed salad spicing mix (I like Cornish seasonings)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Two tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ½ cup freshly ground pepper
- ⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 2–3 tablespoons minced fresh chives
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 450ºF. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken pieces in the pan and cook for 4–5 minutes per side or until well browned on both sides. You should be able to smell the aroma of the chicken when it is cooking. Remove from the heat and place in a plate.
In a small bowl, mix the salad spices and spread over both sides of the chicken. Sprinkle on both a tablespoons of olive oil. Place the chicken on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 10–12 minutes per side or until both sides are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and repeat with remaining chicken. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Low carb and keto-friendly meals can help manage diabetes, indigestion, and many other conditions.
Thanks to the internet and periodical food publications, we now know what to eat, how many carbs and calories to eat, and when to eat them. There are also several recipes available for all types of food.
But it’s still important to understand the difference between Keto, Whole30, and any other diet.
Finding the right diet
If you try any of these diets, know that each has its own pros and cons. They all emphasize on eating and working out many mornings, during the weekends, early in the day, but not late at night.
Keto is the most popular diet with people that follow the ketogenic model and follows a high fat, moderate protein and very low carbohydrate diet.
Whole30 is another tricky diet that’s low in carbs, high in protein, and high in healthy fats.
The key here is that different people respond very well to different kinds of diets. For some people, keto food is mouthwatering, impossible to stop eating it, and no commotion.
On the other hand, no matter how much you struggle to eat plain yellow ‘Dad’s broccoli’, for some ‘normal’ people, it might cause a bit more trouble.
Mushy foods in a bowl or on a plate to your mouth may work for everyone, but some people really like a crunch in their food.
Buy natural ingredients whenever you can. You know where the beef came from — from a local farmer if possible. Nowadays, this is also less expensive. I get that you must be concerned with the impacts of artificial ingredients, but the science shows how detrimental the effects of such ingredients can be.
Salad dressing and other condiments also come in natural products. I use a lot of them myself because they’re completely natural and don’t require sugar or preservatives.
They’re not low in calories and will not make you fat.
Just cooking your own meals causes sedentary people to move more and lose weight. A door-knocking woman is moving around more when she has some food in front of her. Even though you’re sitting and cooking, you’re moving your body around a bit.
It’s great to get into a state of flow when you’re in the kitchen but, please, don’t forget to eat!
Going to the gym while your kids are playing isn’t necessary. Or not for some guys who want to beach-competitive bodies.
