I'll have beef once in a blue moon but I really do try to avoid it because it's hard for me to digest. I much prefer chicken, one of my favorite protein foods. It's one of the foods that helps me keep my energy levels up as long as I balance it with lots of dark leafy greens and other healthy vegetables and fats. Balance and moderation are key factors for me personally.
Recently I had some baked organic chicken with the skin on, half an avocado, and a lot of stir fried garlicky red cabbage, and I noticed instantaneously how good I felt. It was an amazing feeling! The avocado has good healthy fats and the red cabbage is full of glutathione which is probably the most important antioxidant.
My mom's version of chicken steak is wonderful. It's very healthy, clean, and easy to prepare. If you cannot get coconut nectar, real maple syrup works well too. I hope you like this as much as I do!
3 small organic skinless chicken breasts thinly sliced
Juice of 5 calamansi or juice of 1/2 organic lemon
4 tbsp liquid aminos, tamari, or coconut aminos (use these options over regular soy sauce)
One large onion sliced into rings
1 tbsp coconut nectar or real maple syrup (I like this brand.)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Marinate the thinly sliced chicken breasts in calamansi juice, liquid aminos, and coconut nectar or maple syrup for at least 2 hours. When ready to fry warm your cast iron pan set between low and medium. Add the olive oil and fry the chicken until the liquid in the pan dries up. Add the onions once the chicken is brown and continue to cook until the onions are translucent.
