Eat Clean – Train Smart – Live Easy

This is a mantra we try to live by here at IronWill, and it’s written in that order for a reason.

Nutrition is the single biggest component to your health and longevity, period.

What we put into our bodies affects every cell. Garbage in, trash out. We want to help teach you that eating clean, paleo, primal, etc. does NOT mean boring. There’s lots of flavors, textures, smells, and yumminess to experience.

Have fun with this. Jen whipped it up the other night, and it was fabulous!

Honey Lime Chicken w/ Asian Slaw

I came up with this in the moment so I really didn’t measure anything just mixed and tasted until it was good. – Jen

Slaw:

3/4 head of cabbage sliced thin

3-4 carrots grated

1 1/2 Tbls sesame seeds

1 1/2 Tbls of sesame oil

1 tsp of bacon fat

Heat oil and fat in large skillet

Sauté cabbage and carrots in skillet with sesame oil and a little bacon fat (can leave out the bacon fat)

Add salt and sprinkle in sesame seeds and toss/stirring often. I’d say 5-10 mins.

Add dressing (recipe below) and stir and toss to warm dressing.

Dressing:

2 heaping scoops of almond butter

1-2 Tbls of sesame oil

1-2 Tbls of apple cider vinegar

1-2 Tbls of fresh lime juice

1-2 table spoons of sesame seeds

Whisk everything in a bowl taste it before you pour over slaw. Adjust flavors as needed.

Serve warm or cold.

Chicken:

Package of chicken thighs (skin on)

Salt and pepper

Sesame oil

Honey (local raw is best)

Limes

Preheat oven to 375

Season both sides of chicken thighs with salt and pepper

Heat oven safe skillet on stove top burner and add 1-2 Tbls of oil to pan (enough to coat and then a little more).

Once oil is hot place chicken thighs skin side down in oil. Fry 5-8 mins in the oil. Once you have a great brown color on the skin and it’s crisping up flip over to skin side up. Fry another 5-8 mins.

Drizzle each thigh with a little honey and put the skillet in the over to finish off cooking for  about 20-25 mins.

Once out of the oven drizzle a little more honey and squeeze some fresh lime juice on top.

ENJOY!
