Japanese fast food - Paleo-esque...

Friday, June 08, 2012

Do you have one of those fast-food Japanese restaurants in the food court of your local mall?

I've started ordering the lunch special teriyaki with rice/noodles and veg (chicken or shrimp)

I order the protein, no margarine, no teriyaki sauce, but with spicy sauce (chili Sriracha) and all veggies (they are steamed w no sauce). There is enough spicy sauce to flavor the veg as well!

Nice alternative when you haven't prepped a meal...

Only question - what is that "sauce" on the raw chicken??? Starch of some kind? I tend to get the shrimp anyway!

Down again on the scale! Hope everyone is progressing... :)

    Sounds good. I don't remember whether the mall I sometimes go to has one of those places. If they do, I could try this with tofu if they have it. Congratulations on your weight loss!

    There's no mall in teeny tiny Oak Ridge, but we did have a tiny new Chinese/Thai/Japanese place named Chopsticks open this past month. One of the servers there is fascinated when she sees me coming in. She knows to put my rice in a bowl on the side, so I can give it away to someone else, and they prepare mine with virtually no sauce of any kind, then give me a small dipping bowl of the sauce instead. That way, I can taste it and decide if a little bit will send my sugar soaring or not.

    They're so nice, they've started filling up the empty space on my plate with extra steamed veggies "so it look better." Can't complain about that! (grin)

    That's great that you can eat Japanese and choose healthy sauce, I have trouble doing that. My local mall is like 30 miles away,LOL and it doesn't have a food court only a few restaurants. They have a Panera Bread which I love but the things I like there I don't think are very healthy. We do have a Japanese restaurant really close to us and I love the food there but I also love their sauce, so I make it unhealthy for myself, wish I could do without it but the main reason I eat there is because the sauce is so good. People even go in there and order the sauce by the bowl just to take home and eat with their own meals cooked at home. I don't eat there often and its probably a good thing! Congrats on the loss and keep up the great work, you are such an inspiration! emoticon
