I’m two weeks into my Broadway Bares Diet (BBD) and let me tell you that I am so sick of salads it’s not even funny. As creative as I can be salads are not hamburgers, buffalo wings, cake or onion rings! It’s all for a great cause though (and my vanity) so I plow ahead with the exercise and the diet.
For those of you not caught up I’m doing Broadway Bares XXI this year. It’s a charity burlesque show benefiting Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS. Click on any of the pink to find out more or just read my last SNACK OF THE WEEK post and make it a double whammy!
This weeks healthy BBD recipe is inspired by my friends at Mark Fisher Fitness and is one of my favs! Ninja Tacos! Upon entering Mark Fisher Fitness you are deemed a ninja and every ninja needs a good recipe, right? RIGHT! So on to this Puerto Rican’s Asian Tacos! HI HO!
A little spicy, definitely savory and great if you are on the Weight Watcher’s Points Plus system! Even if you aren’t it’s a good source of protein/veggies and a yummy take on a classic!
1 Chicken breast (butterflied aka cut in half horizontally)
1 TBS grated fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic (grated or chopped finely)
1 scallion frond chopped
1 bok choy (washed trimmed and peeled into individual stalks)
1/2 cup broccoli slaw (or any prepackaged, un-mayonnaised, slaw of your choosing)
2 tsp peanut butter
1 TBS Soy/Tamari sauce
2 squirts Worcester sauce
1/2 lemon (juiced)
1 tsp hot sauce
1/4 cup chicken stock
2 reduced carb W.W.tortillas (6in rounds)
pepper to taste.
I know it looks like a lot but most of this stuff should be in the fridge or cupboard already!
Work it out…
Spray a grill pan with a canola oil spray and heat over high heat till hot then reduce to med.
Grill chicken for about 5/6 mins on the first side or till brown and has char marks and flip both chicken, slaw and bok choy and cook for another 5. (I like my veggies crunchy so if you need them more cooked leave them in for a longer period of time!)
Remove from heat when done and cover with aluminum to keep hot.
Add soy peanut butter sauce to pan and scrape up the burnt bits with a rubber spatula.
Assemble your Thai Tacos with 1 tortilla, 1 piece of chicken chopped, bok choy, a TBS or two of sauce and enjoy!
And now for a Mark Fisher Fitness update!
This gym is kicking my ass! Excuse my Swahili! In a good way though! I’m on day 12 in a row (yes I know I need to take a break and I do with Unicorn Yoga classes) My intention for the 3 weeks is to find focus through exercise, commit and challenge myself. I mean, that is besides getting hot and boy is it working! They really pay attention, inspire and give you the care you need to succeed! Thanks Guys!
