Since I haven't been feeling well, hubby didn't want me to cook this evening so we called them up at the restaurant and asked if they would be able to make me food that was steamed without any sauce or seasoning...just meat and veggies. They said yes that they would make me whatever I wanted. So, both last night and tonight, hubby picked up dinner for both of us from our local Chinese restaurant. I had planned to make Chicken Parmesan for dinner last night for Valentine's Day but hubby insisted I not cook last night either, and I am SO happy that I didn't!
The food that our local Chinese restaurant made was so good. Last night I had Chicken w/ Broccoli (steamed) which contained chicken breast, fresh broccoli and a few sliced carrots (topped with peanuts). This evening I asked for Chicken & Shrimp w/ Mixed Veggies (steamed) and it contained chicken breast, shrimp, broccoli, snow peas, mushrooms, celery, carrot, and a few bamboo shoots and water chestnuts (topped with peanuts). No seasoning or oil whatsoever. I simply added my own Tamari sauce and a pinch of red pepper flakes and enjoyed taking a break from cooking while I'm recovering. I am so happy to have yet another low carb alternative for eating out (or eating in) when the need arises. I snapped a couple photos of my take-out food below. Enjoy! (P.S. - thankfully the antibiotics are beginning to kick in and I'm starting to feel a little better this evening and hoping I will continue getting better each day).
