I recently was in the discussion that if you eat clean you lose out of flavor. Of course this is not true! In my experience you get even more flavor. There are so many possibilities out there. It is just a matter of getting experience with the ingredients.
The more recipes you try the more you will gain confidence with the healthy ingredients. Whole clean foods offer so much flavor just on their own, but to really take it up a notch there are so many healthy additions to try. It just takes practice, research, and experimentation. It’s a whole new world of food you are learning, so of course it is bound to take some getting used to.
Here is one of our favorite clean recipes. We have recently became addicted to Balsamic! It is so good! Here is a little info on the wonderful goodness of Balsamic Vinegar can give you.
This recipe is made in one pan! So easy, fast, and delicious!
¼ Cup Light Italian Dressing
3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons honey
A pinch of cayenne pepper
4 Cups raw chicken breast, sliced
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt and pepper
4 Cups of vegetables of your choice
- In a bowl whisk together Italian Dressing, balsamic vinegar, honey, and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
- Heat Olive oil in a large skillet. Season chicken with salt and pepper and cook in the skillet 6 minutes per side or until juices run clear. Add some of the balsamic vinaigrette and sauté to cover the chicken. Remove chicken from the pan.
- Keep the remaining vinaigrette in the pan to sauté your choice of vegetables.
- Serve chicken and vegetables with more of the vinaigrette drizzled on top.
