General Tso's Chicken and Vegetables

Healthier General Tso’s Chicken and Vegetables

   Why order take-out when you could enjoy this sweet and spicy garlic infused sauce mimicking General Tso’s Chicken. On my weight loss journey, I found myself wanting healthier versions of some of my favorite Chinese takeout dishes.  Traditional General Tso’s Chicken is breaded and fried chicken thighs covered in sweet and spicy sauce which is loaded with calories.  I found, by making just a few simple switches I could satisfy the craving without all of those added calories.  Another one of my favorite things when recreating recipes is adding vegetables.  These Veggies add bulk to my meal and also have the added benefit of the micronutrients.  I love making this recipe instead of ordering the calorie-packed takeout version.  Marinating the chicken with the egg white is the key to getting the right texture.  You cook the chicken without frying it or adding extra calories from breading and still get some crunch.  I hope that you enjoy my take on General Tso’s Chicken and Vegetables with fewer calories on this classic Chinese take-out dish. {"@context":"http:\/\/schema.org","@type":"Recipe","description":"Who doesn't love to eat

Deconstructed Enchiladas Recipe

Healthy Deconstructed Enchiladas Recipe

Healthy Deconstructed Enchiladas Recipe I don’t know about you, but Mexican food is my weakness. It is definitely my favorite food. During my weight loss journey I found ways to still enjoy my favorite types of food…but just made them work for me.  Deconstructed Enchiladas are perfect to meal prep, serve to your friends and family, and definitely helps me keep my Mexican food cravings at bay.  Since it is a cold day out, I figured I would cook up these Deconstructed Enchiladas and have a nice cozy fiesta at home…in my pajamas. I believe in eating everything in moderation, so while I do not intentionally make all meals low carb ( I count calories) I do my best to make everything lower in calorie, lower in fat, and sometimes lower in carbs. That is just what works for me.  I will also weigh out the portion that works for me within my calories.  So what toppings you decide to add to these, or the amount you eat, is completely up to you.  I promise you, this recipe is still 100% delicious and I may be guilty of eating this at least once a week.  Sometimes I will add guacamole or
