We associate eating lean meat with the usual suspects: chicken breast, egg whites, tuna. Although delicious and versatile staples for any healthy diet, they can get a little repetitive.
For those who enjoy seafood, the world of lean protein opens up a little wider. Seafood is one of the easiest proteins to cook and there are so many ways you can make a lean, tasty and hearty seafood dish in under 15 minutes. Just like this delicious Cioppino!
Cioppino is a flavorful, satisfying and romantic Italian stew originating from San Francisco! One huge bowl has a similar macro profile to chicken breast and vegetables, but with a million times more flavor.
This dish stands on it’s own served in a bowl, but also pairs great with rice or fresh/cheese bread (like in the photo).
