Healthy Lemon Chicken Dish

I am attempting to be healthy, and wanted to see how I could use less salt. I made this meal tonight and liked it so much I had to share.

I'm not going to get into detail about the veggies and the couscous, b/c you just steam or boil the veggies until they are soft enough but not so soft it loses its crispness.
2 heads of organic broccoli (stems cut off)
1 head of cauliflower (stems cut off)
2 tablespoons Agave Nectar
2 tablespoons cooking wine (I used the Japanese one shown in the picture)
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Boil or steam your veggies, and toss it with the nectar, lemon juice and cooking wine. That's it.
As for the couscous, it's self explanatory. Just follow the box directions and you're set.
Now the chicken.
1 package organic chicken breast (3-4 pcs)
1tablespoon roughly chopped parsley
ground pepper
1 medium sized lemon

Preheat oven 450 degrees. Add chicken to a baking dish. Grease it if needed. Squirt the lemon onto the chicken until lemon has no more lemon juice. Add pepper on top of the chicken along with the parsley. Bake for 20 minutes. Voila. You've got a really healthy meal with barely any salt. The key is to not indulge. Just a handful of couscous and veggies, small piece of chicken and you're set. Add more lemon before serving if you'd like!
