Chicken & Veggie Stir Fry
This was pretty quick and tasty! A"Quick dinner" is, unfortunately, something that we find ourselves needing more often than not! Blah, blah blah... YOU all know! Life get's in the way of that perfect, always well balanced diet! So here is a recipe to fit our busy lifestyles... when we need quick and paleo!
2 C chicken breasts, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 tsp powdered ginger
1/4 C chicken broth (no salt)
1/2 C celery, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, sliced
1 carrot, sliced thin
1 T olive oil
Heat oil and saute the garlic and onion. Add chicken and cook until done. Add remaining ingredients, lower the temperature, and simmer until vegetables are tender (I put a lid on the pan at this point). Serves 4. I sprinkled the top with some paprika and black pepper for color! Enjoy.
Well, the sweet tooth hit again! So, I assessed my pantry and refrigerator for some sort of paleo dessert and this is what I came up with. I have to say, it did the trick! This is Paleo, not zone... (it's not balanced). Hope you like it!
1/2 C blueberries
1/4 C canned pineapple chunks (unsweetened, in their own juice)
1/4 C lowfat coconut milk
1 T unsweetened shredded coconut
2 macadamia nuts, crushed
Mix blueberries and pineapple together. Pour coconut milk over top, and top with shredded coconut and macadamia nuts! That's it. :)
* Hey! Two weeks into the challenge! How's everyone doing??? I've heard some AMAZING things so far! Anyone care to share? I would love to hear about it. Pounds lost? Performance PR's? What about difficulties or challenges? Now that you've dialed in for two weeks, it's time to pay attention to how you're feeling and performing. One of the reason's this is a 3 month challenge, and not a 2 week challenge, is that it takes awhile to get it all figured out... and tailored to your personal needs! Like Michele has said, "It's not an exact science (zone), we are all different". And I know you've heard this before: "this is a lifestyle, not a diet!" Post your thoughts! :)
