Home PageApex NutritionTuesday’s Healthy Fuel Recipe: Thai Chicken or Tofu

This is one of my all-time favorites.  My “go-to” meal when company’s coming over.  The one I freeze and take to a friend who needs an extra meal.  The one that gets rave reviews, but only takes a few minutes to prepare.  It tastes good, freezes well, and provides some flavor variety.  And, it delivers the spicy nutrients healthy athletes can use for overall health and a fiery metabolism:
