Special Notes:

We used avocado oil for the marinade because it has a higher smoke point and handles heat better than olive oil.  If avocado oil isn’t an option, you can use olive oil which would still work well.

We always recommend getting organic and pasture-raised chicken and animal products if possible.  If you have trouble finding organic and pasture-raised products at your local health food store than try out US Wellness Meats where you can order just about any type of meat you want and it is all the highest quality.

Dr Jockers Comments

These golden lime chicken kebabs are a fantastic recipe that is anti-inflammatory and tastes great.  You can use this as your main course and surround it with veggies for a tasty, fat burning meal.

Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs and is best absorbed when combined with healthy fats like the avocado oil and peperine in the black pepper.  The lime juice provides vitamin C and bioflavonoids and the citric acid helps to soften the meat and make it easier to break down and digest.

It is always a good idea to consume meat based meals with good acids like apple cider vinegar and lemon/lime to make the meat softer and easier on the digestive system.  In addition, using polyphenolic rich herbs like turmeric, oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary, etc. are great for reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.
