While Spaghetti Squash Roasts

  • In a frying pan, cook spinach with 1T avocado oil. Add garlic powder and salt.

  • Set aside.
  • Cook chicken with 1 t avocado oil and ½ t umami seasoning.

Notes

*Umami seasoning is considered the 5th taste. It is a savory seasoning that I found at Trader Joes. If you don't have access to this seasoning, you can use a seasoning blend like Creole seasoning. Something with a little bit of spice. Pay attention to the salt content and omit additional salt if necessary.
