We’re working on our eating habits…again. Well, I guess I should say that I am working on my eating habits again, BigBear seems to be doing just fine with his and his weight loss. *curse you slow metabolism* We’ve been working more protein into our diets and and I am trying to cut back on sweets and carbs. *Just cutting back, not eliminating them* It’s a start. *Today I totally grabbed a yogurt and fruit cup over a cupcake on my break, this is HUGE for me* 🙂
With our slow changes, I’ve of course been on the hunt for healthy but tasty recipes. Eating a wedge of lettuce just isn’t going to cut it for me. Sorry, I would be miserable.
But In my quest for healthy foods I’ve been finding a lot of good cookbook options and the one I’m sharing with you today is one of my new favorites. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook then you might already know that I have an obsession with sushi and almost all Asian foods. haha
Jaden’s cookbook, Steamy Kitchen’s Healthy Asian Favorites, has been on my “buy list” for a little bit now ( I am a horrible slacker when it comes to actually buying things, I always tell myself that I’ll do it tomorrow and then tomorrow turns into days, weeks and months lol), but then an opportunity to review it and cook from it for #SundaySupper came about and this beautiful cookbook arrived at my door ready to find a home in my kitchen.
I met Jaden last year at Disney for Food Blog Forum and I must say she is one of the sweetest people that I’ve met since I started blogging. The cookbook is beautiful and I’m so happy for her!! 🙂
On to the healthy eating! I want to share one of my favorite recipes from Jaden’s cookbook This Salmon-Honey Teriyaki! BigBear is a Salmon fan, but I hardly ever cook fish in our house. But that will now have to change!
My husband is 100% in LOVE with this recipe. He devoured it. His rating? “On a scale from 1-10 this is a 20!! I need more!!”
This is so easy to put together and it cooks in mere minutes!
Everything goes into a large resealable bag, marinates in the fridge for a few hours and then cooks in less than 10 minutes!
