Transformation Tuesday and Crackslaw
The Boy’s take: “meh. Not bad. Not over the top good. I think I would rather have straight up stirfry.”
My take: “darnit I can’t put my spoon down I just keep wanting to take more “tastes”
I’ll let you try it out for yourself and see what you think! I based it off of THIS RECIPE from the blog tasteaholics! They even have a “how to video” – Be sure and check out their other posts too!
In a separate saute pan I added about a Tablespoon of sesame seed oil and a finely chopped clove of garlic and cooked until it started to smell DELISH! I then added my already cooked meat and continued to stir it all together! Dump in a bag of coleslaw! I used a 14 oz bag of the tricolor mix from the grocery store but use whatever you prefer. Just make sure it isn’t coleslaw with the dressing on it…haha you want JUST the cabbage mix! To this I added: 2 T siracha, 2 T low sodium soy sauce, 2 T apple cider vinegar, pepper, some pink sea salt, a sprinkling of sesame seeds about a half cup of chopped onion! Keep stirring until the greens start to wilt a bit and its thoroughly warm – BOOM and you are done!
I would say this is about six servings? Figuring SIX servings I entered it into my fitness pal and this is what I came up with per serving:
4.7 grams of fat
4.7 carbs and 1.8 grams of fiber = about 3 total carbs
23.8 grams of protein
352 mg of sodium so not as bad as I was thinking it would be!
Serving recommendations: on a wrap/pita, with tortilla chips – in a bowl with rice – or simply grab a fork and dig in like I did!
There are still some days where negativity, anxst, self doubt and evil creep in. That is just life! BUT I’m learning more and more that I’m worth the days of rest. I’m more than an instagram worthy six pack and muscular legs. I truly feel like on the days I move my body I’m doing it because its ENJOYABLE and I want to – NOT because “I have to.” I’m not sure why it’s so much easier to love everyone else…and to stop being so hard on ourselves…but I guess it’s part of my journey! Maybe you can relate?
Your turn! Have you tried the crackslaw? Would you?
Do you have those struggles too sometimes? How do you deal?
