This is a place where we smash diet culture. Meaning, there is no room for fad diets, eliminating food groups, juice cleanses or glorifying "clean eating." This blog is meant to bring truth and shed light on the fact that ALL foods provide us with energy no matter what. Food is meant to be enjoyed and my goal is to ultimately remove the guilt and shame that diet culture may have taught you & nurture a positive relationship with food.
This One Pan Mushroom Garlic Chicken brings a delicious blend of herbs and garlic for the winter months all in a BOMB mushroom sauce. If you’re not much of a mushroom person you can skip out on the mushrooms and just cook these bad boys in the butter! Totally your call, I’m terrible at following recipes so don’t feel like you have to follow this one exactly as it is written.
After all, you should enjoy the food you make and if that means making tweaks here and there then by all means DO IT! Food is meant to be enjoyed, and understanding the fact that making food just because it’s “healthy” will never allow that satisfaction factor always to kick in.
If you’ve been around here for a while you KNOW that one pan dishes are my absolute go to when I’m making dinner or prepping foods for the week. Reasons I love to use a single pan is there’s always less clean up or I can simply reuse the same pan for additional dishes I make!
The ability of developing a balanced plate is crucial in providing your body with a nourishing and satisfying meal. The plate should consistently have the major food components of protein, starch, fat, & fruits/veggies. The amount of each of these food groups come down to you as an individual along with how much activity you are doing, etc. This is where a Registered Dietitian can step in to show you HOW to develop nourishing plates for yourself and/or your family can look like.
For this One Pan Garlic Mushroom Chicken a balanced plate would look like this:
