I love Asian food because I love the mixture of salty and sweet together. But I find after eating it, I blow up and retain water due to all the salt, sugar, and sauces, and I end up all wired with a huge headache due to the MSG. Most restaurants, even though they may claim not to use MSG, still use some variation of a preservative or flavor enhancer in their food.
If you love Asian flavors, but are craving a cleaner version, here is a recipe that will satisfy the salty and the sweet without the water retention and headaches. I use lean ground turkey, which is low in fat, and I use chili flakes, onion, garlic, and ginger to give it that flavor boost without needing to add a lot of salty sauces.
