Skinny Jamaican Jerk Chicken

So for our 10 month anniversary, Michael was presented with the letter “J.”  And boy did he take it and run with it!  We had a “jazz and Jamaican food” night (cause those two things typically go together, right??).  He cooked up some of the best Jamaican Jerk Chicken I have ever had, so I obviously want to share it with you.  Low cal, high protein, and packed with tons of flavor and fiber!

Grilled Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce Recipe

The biggest health issue with Thai food is typically either that it’s loaded with high carb and calorie pasta (think pad thai) or with high saturated fat and calorie coconut milk (think curry) or… let’s face it… both!  That’s why I love chicken satay.  You don’t get any of the refined carbs or the fried meats.  And this chicken satay is even healthier (duh)!  With light coconut milk, PB2, and lean meat, you can have your little taste of Thailand without the guilt (or the mystery meat).  Stole this recipe from www.skinnytaste.com and modified it a bit to my taste/health liking.

Healthy Taco Salad

Well my taco friends, this salad is different.  I ditched the high fat, low fiber ingredients for beautiful, filling, lean ingredients.  But the one thing I left in?  Taste of course!  Salsa and lime juice serves as the dressing for this dish.  I love salsa as a salad dressing.  Unlike other dressings, it has almost no sugar or fat, but it definitely packs the flavor!  I also used Good Thins corn crackers in place of a fried bowl or tortilla chips for this salad.  I love these crackers because they use very simple, “clean” ingredients but taste great, and are also SUPER low in calories.

Banh Mi Bowl

Enter: the banh mi sandwich.  Pulled pork, pickled carrots, cucumbers… all lusciously sandwiched between a huge bun that’s not only high calorie and full of refined carbs, but in my opinion it masks the beautiful flavors between it!  This conflict has haunted me for years, so imagine my surprise when I came across this recipe from www.skinnytaste.com.  A banh mi in the form of a bowl versus a sandwich!?  Higher fiber (it uses brown rice- duh), lower calorie (no mayo based sauces, fatty meats, or high calorie buns), this is a bowl you’ll want over and over again (or maybe that’s just me).
