Freekeh, an Ancient and Complete Protein & Fiber grain, it fills you up for longer helping you conquer those in between meal cravings and is rich in vitamins. Tomatoes add flavor to this dish and reduce inflammation. Chicken is a lean protein and will satisfy your hunger and continue to burn fat after you have finished eating. Each of these ingredients works singularly to fight fat but when combined they become a fat-fighting super meal.
