Baked Chicken with Thyme and Green Bean Rice

I made baked chicken with green bean rice for my dinner a few days ago. As you can see, I've included a calorie counter for the recipe below. But, I by no means would like to show the table below as a nutritional guide at all. I counted the calories myself based on my calorie counter pocket book. It's just a hobby I have recently acquired. The counter below is just for my personal record and for fun truth to be told.

I have also noticed that I have been eating quite unhealthily during the last few years. Too many restaurant visits, too many takeaways, too many sweets and too much snacking in front of the TV and unfortunately, too little fruit and vegetables. By recording what I've eaten per day, I hope I would be able to monitor what I eat and could therefore be more conscious of what I put into my stomach. I was used to eat mostly meat and carbs and forgot my veggies and fruit. It's a wonder that I am not overweight (or maybe not yet...!). Since I certainly do not want to be overweight or get problems with my health one day, I think it's really time that I start to be more responsible for my own sake.
