ROASTED MUSHROOMS AND SWIMSPOT

Roasted Mushrooms 13

My family and I had a wonderful holiday and I hope you did as well.  We were able to have a laid-back Christmas at home and then left the next day to visit my sister and her family in the mountains for a white post-Christmas and New Years celebration.  Good people, good times.

I was motivated to not stray from healthy eating by the fact that I had a Swimspot.com¬†2013 swimsuit trends¬†video shoot on January 8th (at a gorgeous private home on the water side of PCH in Laguna Beach…spectacular view!). ¬†Let’s just say that cookies and candies don’t look as appealing when you know you will be on display wearing a slew of swimsuits shortly after the holidays.

In preparation for the shoot I ate my fill of fruits and veggies and stayed away from processed foods, grains, and legumes.  I ate a ton of roasted mushrooms because quickly add substance and heft to meals.  It was my habit to make a huge batch at the beginning of the week and it usually lasted me 5 days or so.

One of my favorite meals lately has been a water¬†saute¬†of onions and cabbage over roasted kabocha squash topped with roasted mushrooms and low sodium tamari or a spicy Asian sauce…yum!

INGREDIENTS

2 24oz packs mushrooms (I bought mine at Coscto and used one pack of baby bellas & one pack of criminis)
1/2 cup red wine
1/2 cup reduced sodium tamari
