Roast Chicken

1. Lean white meats
WHITE lean meats are extremely useful within a boxer’s diet as they provide a rich source of protein (chicken breast containing approximately 20-30g of protein) and essential amino acids such as leucine which is needed to stimulate muscle growth. These types of meats also contain less calories and have a lower saturated fat content compared to other types of meats. White lean meats are also packed with vitamins and minerals as chicken and turkey both provide excellent sources of selenium (antioxidant properties that prevent muscle damage) and B-vitamins.
