I used a salad dressing for my chicken marinade. I just add the chicken & the dressing to a ziplock bag and let marinade in the fridge. If I don't use this marinade I just use something simple like lemon juice and garlic or a dry marinade rub with spices (no salt) rubs are way lower in calories than bbq sauce! The dressing I use is super versatile and rich in B vitamins It is great as a marinade, on cooked grains, and fresh greens!
- 1/2 Cup Nutritional yeast *
- 1/3 Cup water
- 1/3 Cup Tamari
- 1/3 Cup Apple Cider Vinager
- 2 Tbsp Crushed Garlic
- 1/4 Cup Flax Seed Oil
* Nutritional yeast comes from molasses (rich in B :) when you go out to buy it do not confuse it with brewers yeast.
Pureed or mashed cauliflower is a great substitute for mashed potatoes. Low in carbs and high in nutrients, the "cauli-taste" is very mild. Try it even if you think you won't like.
- raw cauliflower - a medium head makes a good mash :)
- flax oil
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
Steam Cauliflower. Blend with other ingredients.
