Over the past month, I have overhauled how we think about dinner.
Now that I think about it, every meal actually.
Meal planning and batch cooking took on a whole new meaning. With my new dietary guidelines in order to heal my leaky gut, I was very limited to the food that I was able to have. Even as a person who loves to cook, it sent me into a tailspin. Panic mode all the way.
What do you mean I can’t have eggs, dairy, soy, sugar (hint, it’s in everything!), almonds, yeast, and gluten? “What is left?” I asked. Along with everyone I chatted with about my new food groups. I will tell you, my meals headed back to the basics. Whole30 almost, if you will. It took me many weeks to sort all my feelings out and start to see things move to the optimistic side. Partially due to finally feeling better, but also I was starting to get the itch of wanting to be back in the kitchen experimenting.
Since eating out was nearly out of the picture (except Chipotle!), I was left to create every meal at home. With a ten-month-old attached to my hip, meals had to be speedy. Bonus points if they were portable.
One meal I went back to time and time again, was roasted cauliflower, broccoli, spiced sweet potatoes, loads of avocado and a protein. It was filling, wholesome and energized me to play for hours with Aiden. Not to mention, Aiden figured out how insanely delicious sweet potatoes were!
Since just baked chicken is b-o-r-i-n-g, each time I set out to roast a new batch of goodies, I changed up the flavor profile. And one that really hit home and received rave reviews from all family members was this 3 ingredient Mexican Lime Chicken! You read that right. Only 3 ingredients and it really packs a punch! Simply grab your favorite taco seasoning, a fresh lime and Gold’n Plump chicken! I use a heavy hand with the taco seasoning, creating a crust of seasoning. In my world, seasoning equals flavor! This is a time that less does not equal more!
This is as close to an authentic mexican chicken marinade recipe I have made yet! It is perfect in tacos, enchiladas and really packs a flavor punch in taco salads!
I teamed up with Gold’n Plump again because the brand is our choice for its all-natural chicken raised on family farms. The brand doesn’t take any shortcuts so its products contain no artificial ingredients, preservatives or added hormones. Gold’n Plump also recently announced that its products were going No Antibiotics-Ever and American Humane Certified. This was a huge seller for me as I have started keeping a close eye on additives that sneak into our food. The brand’s all-natural route shows through in its products. Juicy chicken that is full of flavor; no boring, rubbery chicken here.
Gold’n Plump just released a Chicken Checklist to help consumers decipher chicken labels while shopping. Apparently I am not alone when I say I am confused by all the labels that are smacked onto the front of food products these days. Nearly 62% of chicken shoppers are just as confused! Gold’n Plump’s Chicken Checklist eliminates label confusion – such as what exactly does no antibiotics, all natural and no added hormones really mean? Grab a copy of the Chicken Checklist and bring it with you on your next shopping trip and enjoy the peace of mind of wholesome chicken!
