You may not be completely familiar with the word umami (pronounced like ewwww you're gonna be in trouble!) mommy) but you sure are familiar with the taste! And here's a hint, when it comes to Lean and Green Recipes, the flavor is super important!
Umami is defined as the savory, meaty or "earthy" taste of foods. It's most notable in things like beef, seafood, aged cheeses, soy sauce, kimchi and of course, mushrooms.
An important taste (in addition to sweet, sour, salty and bitter) umami brings rich mouth feel, and heartiness to recipes resulting in meals that truly satisfy.
This week, I'm sharing an all-new recipe for Chicken in Truffle Cream Sauce that is Optavia 5&1 friendly and FULL of umami. Best of all you're going to love how easy it is!
