Happy New Year, darlings! I hope everyone’s 2016 is off to a fresh and fabulous start. How about that #TIUChallenge?! I’m hanging in there with it and while my meals may not be verbatim plan, they are most definitely LCG!
Speaking of verbatim, we did have the “teriyaki bowls,” on Monday night. I know it’s supposed to repeat tonight but that is just too boring for me…and The Stud. So tonight, we’re making Boss Sauce Chicken, also because I have fresh [organic] thyme on hand and hate waste.
But back to the “teriyaki bowls.” You may remember a few posts ago that I don’t care much for teriyaki. It’s still not my favorite, but since I was blessed with a Vitamix this past Christmas, I decided to make my own sauce that doesn’t have so many preservatives and yuckies in it. Even if it’s low sugar or no sugar, homemade is always better when you have the time. Plus, don’t even get me started on the sodium bomb. This spicy-gingergy sauce is what I am calling “Yummyaki” because it is packed with flavor. It can definitely be modified to suit your taste buds so give it a shot! ! While The Stud helped me cook the chicken, he gave me a big tip on cooking chicken in the skillet. “Only use a little sauce at a time, wait until it starts to evaporate and bubble, then add a little more. Wait again, and add a third time until everything is coated well and shimmering.” Shimmer, got it.
Finally, this post is a double-whammy. I have a few more great reads and articles to keep 2016 on a light filled, positive path.
As always, let me know if you have a kitchen blunder, have a question about food, how to cook something, or if you need some inspiration! Would love to connect.
With love and light,
Nope, I can’t afford a life coach, but I can afford one of these books!
Beautiful affirmations for you today…
Love is energy, you are energy, therefore you are love
Still confused about what organic means? Read this.
I agree with all of this. While the Stud has a not-to-be-mentioned-nickname for Kefir, I sneak it into his smoothies—daily. HA
1 cup Orange Juice
2 tbl Tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
1 tbl Bragg’s Aminos (you could do all 3 Aminos or all 3 Tamari, your call)
2 inch knob of ginger (grated if your blender can’t process)
3 garlic cloves (minced if your blender can’t process)
2 tbl agave
¼ cup onion (optional…it tones down the ginger just a tad)
Add all ingredients to a blender and process well. Alter to your tastebuds.
Make ahead options:
Can make ahead. Re-blend if settling occurs.
- This makes enough sauce for probably 2-3 separate meals. Also great on steak.
