Grilled Chicken with Onions and Clamshell Mushrooms Recipe

Grilled Chicken with Mushrooms and Onions

I’m excited to report week 4 of my Mushroom Makeover! I’ve learned so much this week about emotions, mushrooms, recipes and flavors. This week I made a scrambled eggs with clamshell mushrooms, Mushroom Ramen Soup, Chicken Breast covered in a red sauce mixed with mushrooms and Grilled Chicken with onions and clamshell mushrooms! This week I fell in love with Clamshell mushrooms!  I will definitely be buying these more often. I always had this idea that most mushrooms tastes basically the same but that is so not true!  The clamshell mushroom is very different.  It has a shell fish, meaty flavor that is very flavorful!

I think my biggest take away from this weeks recipes is all the flavor from the different types of  mushrooms I add to the recipes I make.  I have really learned Mushrooms are lower fat than meat products but the bonus is the flavor it adds.  I also add less salt or other seasonings too.

I will be making more recipes with mushrooms just for the flavor! I had an ah-ha moment when I learned this. I can thank Mamavation and the Mushroom Council for that special moment!

  • We added sea salt and pepper to taste.
  • Saute those just enough for the onions to be soft. Just before the onions are done I added about a teaspoon full of fresh garlic for extra flavor.

I continued to learn a lot about emotions this week. I never would have thought the talk of emotions would come up in this weight loss challenge but it’s a huge part of the process. Way bigger than I ever imagined.  I think there are more of us that do emotional eating and don’t even realize it.  I learned that I can be an emotional eater too.

I’ve really taken all the distractions from my meal time routine and took time to taste the flavors and textures of the food I made.

I also learned that I get full quicker on this clean eating because it’s not junk food.  The healthier the food the less I need of it.  Crazy how that works.   I still have to watch my water intake.  If I don’t pay attention I will easily forget about water until I am dying of thirst.  That is not helpful when you are trying to eat healthy and maintain a healthy metabolism.  It’s so important to keep hydrated. If you don’t, you will see a change on the scale and not for the better. Corinne Dobbas (our monitoring Dietitian) has really helped with the focus of this challenge. I love how it’s all coming together step by step.

The exercise routines are INTENSE! Mark’s plan is amazing. I was really looking forward to my exercise routines this week which was a complete change from me hating them last week!  I still hate burpees though.  I’m not sure I will ever find a love for them. I hope too but I seriously doubt it. If you want to follow along, head over to the Mamvation Fitness plan found here.

I’m gonna end this week by saying that I am happy with all the energy I have! I’m also happy that my pants are fitting loser. I’m not big on checking my weight but I did for this challenge and I am down 6 pounds so far! It’s really been life changing to have a plan for my food intake, an exercise routine to keep me going and keeping my thoughts in check as I continue on this positive journey. I feel incredibly good about the way this is going.  This is really something I can stick too!
