I have not only brought lunch and breakfast to work for the last 4 days, but it’s been a healthy lunch and breakfast.
Not only is it healthy, but it actually tastes good too!
Plus I’ve actually tracked my food for the last 2 days and have started tracking for today too!
Hopefully I’ve started a new trend in my life! 😉
One of the key things that I need to focus on is finding healthy food that tastes good. That is really huge to me.
I am a foodie and I think I always will be. I take pleasure from really good tasting food. It is a part of my nature that I don’t think will ever change.
I talked about this in therapy yesterday how I need to focus on continuing to find these recipes that I truly enjoy that are not high calorie/fat.
One of my favorites that I have been eating all week is Miso Chicken. This is a recipe that I got out of a weight watchers cookbook a long time ago.
The taste is amazing and everyone I have served it to loves it and asks for the recipe. It’s incredibly simple too:
24oz boneless/skinless chicken thighs (can use bone in as well)
1/3 cup red miso paste
1/3 cup orange juice
1/4 cup mirin
1 TBSP fresh ground ginger
1 tsp sesame oil
Whisk together miso paste, oj, mirin, ginger and sesame oil. Place chicken in large bowl or baggie and pour marinade in/over. Marinate for at least 2 hours and up to 24. Grill or broil chicken. Makes 6 servings (4oz of chicken each).
It tastes best grilled, but I have broiled it in the winter. Tastes amazing for days so I usually make a big batch.
