It’s fall, and that means the holidays. Holidays usually means we get nice and plump and put on those extra pounds to stay warm for the winter. Well, not in this house. My husband and I decided to buckle down and get serious about our weight-loss journey together. This is not a strong suit for him so I really have to carry the weight of being pro-active in our meals, and I try my best to be creative so we’re not eating the same things over and over. The biggest misconception about clean eating is that it’s boring, well I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be.
Ingredients: Yields 1 serving
1 Tbsp Fresh herbs (of choice)
2 Tbsp SoyYay
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce (Low sodium)
1 Package Shirataki Spaghetti (2 servings)
1/2 Cup Diced Onion
1/2 Cup Chopped Cabbage
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
Salt & Pepper to taste
Remove noodles from package and rinse and drain thoroughly. Place a sauce pan on medium heat and add noodles and herbs, toss noodles for about 5 minutes or until golden color. Place to the side.
In a medium sauce pan place on medium heat, spray with nonstick oil and add cabbage, cook cabbage until it softens. Add Cabbage to the noodles (in the pan on the side).
Now place your Tofu in the pan, add the onions and garlic, cook until tofu starts to brown and onions become soft. Add Soy sauce to the tofu mixture and continue to toss in pan until the tofu crisps on the outside.
Once cooked, add the tofu mixture to the noodles and cabbage, place pan on low heat and add the SoyYay. Toss until the sauce is glazed over your dish and serve!
There you have it, a great meal that will leave you full and guilt-free. If you’re a carnivore (like me) you can replace the tofu with chicken, shrimp or a lean fish, although this will affect the calories of the dish. I chose tofu because it’s lower in calories but still a good source of protein.
Enjoy, and save those calories for Thanksgiving!
