My recipe: broccoli slaw dressed with a combo of brown rice vinegar, fresh squeezed OJ, fresh grated ginger, orange zest, roasted garlic and white pepper tossed with black sesame seeds. You can pair this with or add any lean protein (shrimp, chicken, beans, tofu…) and a whole grain (pita, crackers, or throw in cooked, chilled whole grain noodles). Lots of layers of flavors and it perfectly fits the S.A.S.S! Yourself Slim '5 piece puzzle' principle.
New S.A.S.S! Yourself Slim recipe: Roast 1/4 cup each red bell pepper, mushrooms, onion & eggplant. Whisk together 1 Tbsp each brown rice vinegar & fresh squeezed OJ, 1 clove roasted garlic and 1/4 tsp each fresh grated ginger & dried thyme. Toss dressing with 1 cup mixed greens & sprinkle with 1/2 cup cooked, chilled quinoa. Sear 1/5 of a 14-ounce package of extra firm organic tofu (or 3 oz shrimp) in 1 Tbsp coconut oil. Top the greens with the roasted veggies then shrimp or tofu and serve.
