Did your new year’s resolutions include eating healthier? You’re not alone. Eating healthier and losing weight are consistently among the top five resolutions nationwide.
The good news is, you really can eat fresher, lighter, more nutritious meals without sacrificing the flavors you love. One simple secret: Kikkoman sauces and seasonings–– Soy Sauce, Ponzu, Teriyaki Takumi, Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, Hoisin Sauce, and Sesame Oil–– are an easy way to add flavor and appeal to healthier ingredients, like vegetables, seafood, and chicken.
Here are four quick, easy, and delicious recipes to jumpstart your resolution reboot. You got this!
Skip the sandwich and give this protein-packed bowl a try. It’s brown rice, topped with colorful veggies and grilled chicken—and our rich, thick, Teriyaki Takumi sauce gives it all the sweet-savory flavor you crave. Prep tip: make all the components in advance. Then, assemble your bowl, microwave, top with the cabbage and peanuts, and add that final drizzle of Takumi for a healthy lunch in minutes.
Salmon’s a perfect lighter option for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion. A quick brown sugar–Ponzu basting sauce is the flavor secret that makes this succulent Baked Salmon with Avocado Sauce so easy—and so tasty. To make the sauce even lighter, you can replace the sour cream with low-fat sour cream or yogurt.
This creamy-spicy chicken salad, lightened with yogurt and seasoned with Kikkoman® Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, is just right for lunches and snacking. Make a batch to use all week in salads, sandwiches, or “straight up” over lettuce leaves.
If you’re cutting carbs or gluten and craving noodles, spiral cut zucchini can be your new BFF. This Zucchini Noodle Hoisin Chicken Stir Fry has so much flavor, color and texture going on, you’ll never miss the pasta. Tip: if you don’t have a spiralizer, no worries! Just use packaged fresh or frozen zucchini spirals.
