GRILLED STEAK, WITH ONION, AND A MUSHROOM ARUGULA SALAD
If you need a low-carb, high-protein meal with a healthy steak salad, you'll be able to get all the protein you need without any of the carbs you don't. This arugula salad will also provide you with vitamins A, K, Folate plus some Calcium and Potassium with some Asian-inspired flavor!
Here is a list of all the ingredients that you're going to need to put this tasty meal together:
2 cups arugula
4 oz flank steak
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup of sliced red onion
1/2 cup of crimini or shitake mushrooms
1/2 tsp each: garlic powder, onion powder, ginger, chili powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper
1 tsp of brown sugar
1 tbsp of low-sodium soy sauce
Salt and pepper, to suite your taste
A drizzle of Balsamic vinegar over salad
Using an extra-large Ziploc bag, you then combine your garlic powder, some onion powder, some ginger, some chili powder, a bit of paprika, a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, some soy sauce with some brown sugar. Shake it all thoroughly to mix it well. Add your flank of steak to the bag and make sure to it thoroughly covers steak. Allow to marinate for about 15 minutes.
Place your pieces of sliced onions and some mushrooms in tin-foil and then drizzle with some olive oil, salt, and some pepper.
Then grill your steak to reach the desired temperature. Place the veggies also on the grill for about 5-10 minutes, until caramelized.
Finish off your arugula salad with some veggies and sliced steak, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
CURRIED CHICKEN KABOBS
Chicken breast is a good protein sauce, so there's a good chance you probably got it in your freezer or fridge already. Instead of just popping the chicken breast in the oven like you usually do, try it as a flavorful kabob. The Greek yogurt will add some casein protein; the curry will also provide you with some beneficial anti-inflammatory properties.
The ingredients you're going to need are:
2-4, 6-oz sliced chicken breasts
1 peeled and sliced cucumber
1/2 cup of non-fat plain Greek-yogurt
1/2 tsp each of: garlic powder, onion, ginger, coriander, chili powder, paprika, and curry powder
Salt and pepper
Skewer the chicken slices, then spray with some cooking spray; cover liberally with all the spices. Then place the skewers on grill to cook for about 10 minutes on each side, till chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve with some Greek yogurt and a few cucumber slices.
