Moaning Monday

18 Nov

Monday is that day when I feel the fattest and swear I can’t figure out why I gained five pounds over the weekend.

Anyone who watched me eat could find the answer.

Enough moaning.

Lets just try to eat better.

Almost all food is delicious so lets cook something really good.

Pan seared chicken is a staple. Fast ,easy and delicious.

One pound of boneless chicken

Marinate in one tablespoon of corn starch and one tablespoon of soy sauce.

Cut into thin strips

Two tablespoon oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

Two tablespoon of soy sauce

One teaspoon of fresh parsley

One sliced onion

One cup of cut broccoli

1/2 cup cooked edamame

Six cups of baby spinach

Two chopped scallions

Thin sliced carrots

One cup of grape tomatoes

Balsamic salad dressing on the side

Season the chicken with the spices

Heat the oil in a frying pan

Place the chicken in the frying pan. Don’t touch it until there is a crust on the bottom then turn

Add the onions and broccoli and cover with the soy sauce for three minutes

Pour over the salad. Top with only  a couple of pita chips or chinese noodles. This is just for crunch.

You can make the chicken spicy by adding a dried chinese pepper or a jalapeno to the oil in the beginning ,before you add the chicken. This  is my favorite.

When I am trying to eat less, I eat tastier food. It is more satisfying to me.
