Recipe of the Week:
We love Orange Chicken, BUT it can be riddled with added sugar. Instead give this No Sugar Added Orange Chicken recipe a shot!

Ingredients:
Chicken
1 3/4 lb chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tsp black pepper
Pinch of sea salt
1 cup flour (I used oat)
4 egg whites
2 cups panko
Sauce
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1 1/2 tbsp orange zest
1 tbsp ginger
1/4 grated (no skin) apple, or to taste
1 1/2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp arrowroot OR cornstarch mixed with 1 tbsp water
Garnish
sesame seeds
green onion

Instructions:
STEP 1
Set oven to 420F/216C or an air-fryer to 410F/210C.

STEP 2
In a bowl, season small chicken pieces with pepper and a pinch of sea salt.

STEP 3
Dip the chicken piece in the flour and shake off any excess. Dip it in the egg white and shake off any excess, then into the panko to cover. Place the chicken on a baking tray and repeat until all ingredients are used. Spray the chicken pieces with a little avocado or grapeseed or coconut oil beforehand to help them get crispy while cooking.

STEP 4
Mix together the ingredients for the sauce – NOT the arrowroot or cornstarch yet – and season to taste until you get it right for YOUR tastebuds.

STEP 5
Set a carbon steel pan on medium heat and add the sauce. When the sauce begins to slowly simmer, immediately add the “slushy” mixture of arrowroot and water to the pan and stir IMMEDIATELY so it doesnt clump. Remove the pan from the heat so the sauce will cool and thicken some.

STEP 6
Fold in the chicken and stir to coat all the pieces.

STEP 7
Garnish and enjoy with your choice of rice/grain or even vegetables!

Nutrition of the Week:
We have less than 50 days until the new year. If you’ve been following along with these blog posts, you know we’ve been working on building healthy habits and you already have a head start on making 2023 your best year yet. One big part of the holidays that often gets ignored is the added stress-You are responsible for all your regular tasks PLUS holiday stuff and get togethers with family/friends you may not see very often. While this season can be fun, it can also add STRESS. Stress plus treats hanging around ALL over the place can equal trouble. Here’s some ways to beat that stress eating habit:

  1. Plan out your snacks for your most stressful time of day. Find yourself hitting the kitchen/pantry at the same time of day looking for snack? Plan it out and portion it into a serving size-then just grab and go when the feeling strikes
  2. Keep your water bottle handy-often times you can be dehydrated and not actually hungry
  3. Ask yourself if you are feeling some emotions, and not really hunger-maybe go for a walk, chat with a friend, or write in your journal first
  4. Check to make sure your meals are balanced and you are feeding yourself enough at your meal times. You may need to increase your portions.
  5. How’s your sleep? Being tired always makes things worse-cravings, feeling overwhelmed, decisions in general. Check in with your night time routine and see if you can find ways to shut off electronics earlier, keep your room cold and dark, and quiet.
  6. If all else fails, have a plan. Think about what you will do when you start feeling stressed: “If I feel stressed, I will _

Recipe of the Week:
Tired of meal prepping plain old chicken and rice? Give this Butter Chicken with Rice and Garlic Naan recipe a try!

Ingredients:
For the butter chicken
2 tablespoons oil
1 medium onion diced
1 teaspoon fresh ginger finely minced or grated (or use paste)
2-3 cloves garlic finely minced or crushed
1 ½ pounds about 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into ¾-inch chunks
1 can 6 oz. tomato paste (or 8-10 oz can of tomato sauce)
1 tablespoon garam masala
1 teaspoon or paprika, adjust to taste
1 teaspoon Fenugreek I use powder, but seeds or mustard seeds can be used too, optional*
1 teaspoon
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup heavy cream sub for half & half or yogurt for low fat

For the rice
1 cup basmati rice or jasmine
1 3/4 cups water
Large pinch salt

For the garlic naan
small Pizza dough
4 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup minced cilantro optional
2 tablespoon melted butter

To cook butter chicken:
Heat a large skillet or medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and onions and cook onions down until lightly golden, about 3-4 minutes. Add ginger and garlic and let cook for 30 seconds, stirring so it doesn’t burn. Add the chicken, tomato paste, and spices. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until everything is cooked through. Add the heavy cream and simmer for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.

To make naan:
Combine the garlic, butter, cilantro and butter in a small bowl. Set aside. Divide pizza dough into 8 equal portions. Roll the dough into a small circle using a rolling-pin. Heat up a skillet (cast-iron preferred) over high heat and lightly grease the surface with some oil to avoid the dough from sticking to the skillet. Place the dough in the skillet. When it puffs up and bubbles and burnt spots appear, flip it over and spread with the garlic butter mixture. Cook until done. Repeat the same until all dough is done.

To cook rice:
Wash rice until it runs clear then rinse. In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let stand for 5 minutes.

To Assemble:
Measure 1 cup of cooked rice into each . Pour about 1 cup of the butter chicken on the rice. Wrap a naan with foil or plastic wrap. To heat, microwave containers for 2 minutes or until steamy. Microwave naan for just 20 seconds.
