Expert Tips

Chicken contains vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine. Vitamin B6 is important for digesting proteins, plus it helps to keep hair and nerves healthy.

Lemon juice is very versatile—use it in salad dressings, marinades, and more for a low-calorie burst of fresh flavor. You can extract more juice from a lemon by slicing when at room temperature.
