Do you know what red walnuts are? Do you love walnuts? If you do, you’re in luck because I am going to be giving some away. Not just 1 package, not 2 packages, maybe 3, 4, or 5 packages! You need to share the recipe idea you would use red walnuts in, and the ideas that I think highlight being able to see how pretty they are will be the winners. If you win, I would like you to make the recipe and share it in writing and in a photo, okay? So, what would you use red walnuts for?

No Sugar for 10 Days!

Leave a comment

I am taking the Fed Up Challenge – no added sugar for 10 days. I’m just finishing day 7 and it’s really not been too hard. My mom and I watched the movie, Fed Up and wow! I had no idea how much sugar was in so many foods. We went to shop for sugar free bread and of all the kinds on the bread isle, none of it was sugar free. We finally found some and it was in the bakery section, 1 gram of sugar for 2 slices of bread, that’s the best we could do. I even found out some mayonnaise has sugar added, the high fructose corn syrup. Crazy! My mom made some amazing sugar free Asian chicken lettuce wraps and they were so good, I just had to share them. You can see the recipe in the post before this one. Make them, you will love them! I’ll check back after I finish the 10 days and let you know what I think. If you haven’t seen the movie, check it out on Netflix, it’s really crazy.

Aisian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Sugar Free Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps
2 boneless skinless chicken breast(s), Boiled or slow cooked
2 cup(s) sweet red pepper(s), Chopped or diced if you prefer smaller pieces
6 medium uncooked scallion(s), Chopped, greens and whites
1 Tbsp ginger root, grated, or you can certainly use store bought, pre
1 tsp sesame oil
8 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce (Tamari)
4 cup(s) Marketside butter lettuce salad, Separate leaves for cups
1 tsp Spike Seasoning, All Purpose
1 tsp Spike Gourmet Natural Seasoning, All Purpose, Hot ‘n Spicy Magic!

Precook the chicken breasts by boiling them until they are fully cooked. I make the chicken in my slow cooker ahead of time and make this recipe with them cold. Dice the chicken. Chop the bell pepper and scallions. – set aside.

Heat the sesame oil in a skillet and add the chicken, season with both flavors of Spike (don’t use the hot & spicy if you don’t like a little kick – they’re not hot, but flavor to taste) and soy sauce for 4 Tbs and add more if needed.

Once combined, add the peppers and onions and cook until onions and peppers are soft. Grate the fresh ginger and mix well.

Wash & dry the lettuce leaves, fill with a kitchen drawer tablespoon of filling and enjoy!

Winner! Winner!
