Getting ish done this week despite emotional breakdowns and wrenches thrown my way. “It’s all just too much” is a phrase I’ve been using. As a victim of #domesticviolence that almost took my life (twice) having to deal with your assailant on any level is beyond traumatic.
But no matter what the level of angst and trauma that continues to come my way nothing compares to the life (more like death) that was going to be my future had we stayed.
So fuck yes it’s too much at times.
But with John by my side and the boys in our arms there is nothing we can’t get through. 🖤🖤🖤🖤 All things are possible with 𝙂𝙍𝙄𝙏 𝙂𝙍𝘼𝘾𝙀 + 𝙊𝙐𝙍 𝙂𝙄𝙁𝙏!
We make all sorts of Asian inspired dishes at home but sushi is just one I’ll leave to the pros. Side dishes and stir fry however is fair game.
I have wanted to make my favorite salad to a great sushi night. The light and refreshing ever so yum Cucumber Salad. 🥒
This recipe is made with coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, which is great if you’re like me and love soy sauce recipes but would rather avoid the soy part. It’s gluten-free which makes it excellent for anyone on a low-carb diet!
I wasn’t sure this would taste like one off the menu but I was happily surprised.
Serve + eat immediately or store in air tight container for up to 2 days.
Let’s talk Coconut Aminos
Coconut aminos is relatively low in calories and carbs. It fits into virtually any diet, such as Paleo, vegan, low-carb, kosher, and keto.
What are coconut aminos? Coconut aminos is a liquid condiment that is very similar to soy sauce, except it’s made from the ‘sap” of coconuts, or the coconut-blossom nectar. It has a dark, rich, sweet, and salty flavor, and the texture is almost identical to real soy sauce, but without gluten, soy, or MSG. Because it is made using the sap of coconut, coconut aminos has a slightly sweet and salty flavor. However, it only contains one gram of natural sugar per tablespoon serving.
Where can I get them? Your grocery store should totally carry these. Check the spot where your oils and vinegars are sold.Here is a link of what I get so of course you can always amazon prime that ish straight to your casa. COCONUT AMINOS
