This week marks a big change in my lifestyle as I will now not be working from home during typical work hours, so I'm going to be relying on these quick and easy meals more than ever. It's certainly different, but I am excited to be challenged and pushed outside my comfort zone. Perhaps I should write a blog post all about this exciting new opportunity and fill you all in? Let me know if that's interesting, or if I should just focus on keeping the recipes coming. I will, of course, still be blogging, studying with the NTA and expanding my Bella Grace Wellness business venture, so stay with me for new weekly recipes, beauty tips and more.
Anyway, did you know that least 1 in 4 Americans eat fast-food every day?
That means that every single day, one person out of four is consuming a highly processed and poor quality meal that is only harming their body, rather than honoring and nourishing it. There are many reasons why I think people opt for fast food such as money, convenience, lack of meal preparation, lack of knowledge on how to cook, or perhaps they just quite simply love the taste and don't mind what they feed themselves. My goal is to make cooking easier for you so that you may quite fancy cooking a wholesome meal at home instead.
This month I'm focusing on fast-food recipes, the healthy way. This Asian-Inspired, Sweet 'N Sour Shrimp Stir-Fry is not only easy peasy but can be made from scratch in less time it would take you to order and pick up a Chinese takeaway from your local Panda Express. Pair with Cauliflower Rice for a healthy and yummy imitation of your favorite Asian dish!
Asian Shrimp Stir-Fry
1 lb shrimp, peeled
1 red onion, sliced
2 bell peppers (red/orange/yellow)
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 cup bok choy
2 tablespoons cooking oil of choice
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons grated ginger
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons coconut aminos
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds or I'm loving this garlic sesame blend
1) In a small bowl, mix sesame oil, rice vinegar, coconut aminos, raw honey, tahini and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
2) In a large pan, add cooking oil over a high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the sliced red onion and cook for 1 minute.
3) Add the rest of the vegetables, garlic and ginger and cook for 3 minutes, until starting to slightly soften.
4) Add the shrimp and the mixture in the bowl to the skillet. Stir for 3-4 minutes, or until shrimp are cooked through.
5) Serve and sprinkle with sesame seeds or my fave sesame blend. We LOVE ours over "egg fried cauliflower rice" for a true Chinese take-out feel!
