Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
Making small changes in your diet can make a BIG difference! Start your day by drinking 2 glasses of water first thing in the morning!  And try some new recipes- you just might surprise yourself! I find that going with the healthier options not only TASTE better, but you will FEEL so much better physically! :)


At a glance
4 Tbsp: PB2
2 tsp: Crushed fresh garlic
2 tsp: Grated fresh ginger
4 Tbsp: Light soy sauce
1/4 cup: Sliced scallions
1 cup: Water
1 Tbsp: Dijon mustard
2 tsp (to taste): Asian chili sauce or hot sauce
1 cup: Low-fat buttermilk
1/4 tsp: Pepper, salt
1 lb: Boneless skinless chick breast
1/4 cup: Fresh cilantro leaves

Mix together first 8 ingredients to make dipping sauce and set aside. Put chicken, salt, pepper, buttermilk and a third of the dipping sauce into a resealable bag and shake to coat. Marinate in fridge for up to 6 hours. (Refrigerate the rest of the dipping sauce, too). Remove chicken from bag, shake off excess and grill in a very hot pan or on a grill, (sprayed with non-stick spray) for 5 minutes on each side until cooked through. Garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve with dipping sauce on the side. Add more or less chili sauce to the dipping sauce, depending on how spicy you like your food.

Additional Tips

Serve with a side of steamed rice and lightly steamed vegetables - like snow peas or baby bok choy.
