Recipe: Roasted Chicken Breast and Vegies

I've been trying to eat a little more low carb since that seems to be bringing my A1C down. I'm diabetic and this time last year my A1C was 11.1 and right now I have it down to 7.1 but my doctor would like to have it down a little bit more. So 4-5 nights a week I've been eating more vegetables, salad and cutting the rice, potatoes and pasta out of my dinners. 

Ken liked what I was making for myself so he's been eating what I've been making too. 1-2 nights a week I still eat a little pasta, some rice or a small potato but it seems like what I've been doing is working along with the medicine I'm on. 

For this all I did was sprinkle a little olive oil on some bell pepper, onion, carrots, a chicken breast and broccoli and sprinkle some salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin, and mesquite seasoning on everything and bake in a 400F oven for 30 minutes. That chicken breast was pretty big so Ken and I halved it between us with the vegetables.

It's pretty easy to eat low carb, especially if you like vegetables.
