I LOVE one pan meals, especially when are naturally delicious. Often, these types of meals are loaded up with ingredients that are high in additives and sodium. Not this recipe! It uses a plant- based sauce called Coconut Aminos that will change your perspective on healthy food for good!
So what are Coconut Or Coco Aminos? Naturally deriving from nature, they provide the same taste as soy sauce without all the sodium. In fact, on average they have 10 times LESS sodium per serving than soy sauce! So you get the added health benefit, but keep all the flavor. Another reason you should avoid soy sauce and soy-based products is because studies have shown that 95% of all SOY products are Genetically Modified and lead to hormone health issues, specifically in women’s bodies. For more info on soy, check out this video from Dr. Josh Axe. For more on this recipe, watch my first segment from SA Live from back in January where I make this recipe live!
More importantly, this recipe is packed full of flavor while still providing your balanced nutrition with lean proteins, veggies (nutrients) and healthy fats.
