If you eat clean, it's easy to get stuck in a rut of boring and bland. That Tupperware container of perfectly-proportioned tilapia, broccoli, and brown rice could hold so much more! All it takes is a little creativity?and probably a little Sriracha. Okay, a lot of Sriracha.
Yet hot sauce only goes so far. Liven up your dining experiences with bold, Asian ingredients. These versatile flavors add fun, sweet-and-spicy zest to your healthy food. By choosing healthy dressings and spices, you can boost flavor without adding extra fat, carbs, or calories.
These recipes highlight some of my favorite Asian flavors. Get ready for a garlic, ginger, chili flake, curry, soy, rice vinegar, and Sriracha bomb!
1. Miso White Fish
White fish is lean and high in protein, making it great for any fat-loss or muscle-building diet. Instead of throwing it in a pan with some olive oil, try adding rice vinegar and miso paste. You'll have a meal you'll want to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
2. Lettuce-Wrapped Turkey Burgers
There's probably no room for regular hamburgers in your fat-loss diet. Don't despair! These turkey burgers are just the thing to tame the craving for fatty ground beef. I add some liquid aminos for an extra muscle-building pump!
3. Chicken Curry Shirataki Noodles
Almost calorie- and carb-free noodles, you say? Awesome! This spicy chicken noodle dish is a great source of protein. Enjoy its intense flavor without worrying about fat and carbs.
4. Chicken Fresh Rolls
Store-made spring rolls are often full of calories, fat, and sodium-heavy sauces. Don't give up on them; just make your own! Use fresh vegetables and herbs to increase the nutrition content of this tasty meal.
5. Crockpot Sesame-Ginger Salmon
What's easier than cooking in a Crockpot? Throw in some healthy ingredients, wait an hour, and voila! A delicious, protein-filled meal!
