In a world filled of meal prepping and clean eating, a girl has got to switch it up. After a few weeks of strictly meal prepping the sight of chicken was making me want to vomit, to be quiet honest. I love fish but I refuse to make it ahead of time and heat it up later on. Plus I really don't want to be that girl in the office who makes the entire room smell like fishys.
To switch it up I've been eating more turkey in all different shapes and forms like turkey burgers, sliced turkey in salads and turkey meatballs. But even that has gotten old pretty quick. Typically around my "time of the month" my iron levels drop a bit lower than usual which is typical for a female. I can always tell when it's coming because I'm way more tired and slug like than usual. Even my typical cup of joe and bottle of kombucha doesn't give me the boost I need. So in that case, I bring in the red meat. I know plenty of people avoid red meat especially when on a diet, but I believe that red meat once a month can be of a great benefit, or dare I say even multiple times!
While still trying to stay within my calories, and typical meal requirements I try to make dinners that are tasty and still considered eating clean. Tonight I made hibachi steak and vegetables. Super easy, super basic and super delicious.
Flank steak (oz. depending on how many people the meal is for / your protein requirements)
1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
Low sodium soy sauce
1. Slice up all your vegetables and throw into the skillet with pepper, garlic powder and olive oil.
2. Slice up your steak into bite sizes, then season it with salt, pepper and garlic powder
3. Once vegetables are cooked half way through add in soy sauce (I used 1tbsp)
4. Once vegetables are cooked to your liking, remove from the skillet onto a plate and place steak in the skillet
5. Add 1tsp of soy sauce and sesame seeds, allow steak to cook 1-3 minutes on each side depending on how you prefer it.
6. Serve and enjoy!
You can make this recipe with any protein like shrimp, chicken or salmon all prepared the same way. You can also add rice to the dish for some carbs as I usually do, I was just out of rice for this meal!
