Herbed Balsamic Chicken with Goat Cheese

Posted Aug 07 2009 11:38am

This savory comfort food provides 96% of the recommended daily allowance of niacin. This B herbed chicken vitamin “vasodilator” increases blood flow by widening the blood vessels, particularly the capillaries. And if you’re looking to detoxify, this is a really good thing.

That’s because tiny blood vessels are of the greatest value in reaching your fatty tissues, where most toxins are stored in your body. So open wide and enjoy this naturally detoxifying dish.
