My current favourite meal is stir fry! It’s nutritious, low in weight watchers points and yummy in my tummy. I was especially proud of this meal because I didn’t have to go to the grocery store first. I simply browsed through my fridge and cooked up what I found was already there. The new me! I don’t remember a time before I lost got rid of these 60 pounds that I would have had this much variety in fresh veggies available in my fridge at the same time. ♥
Here’s the recipe:
First add a splash of olive oil and then throw in your “hard” vegetables – the ones that take a bit longer to cook. For this meal, I found sweet red onion, red bell pepper (capsicum to you Aussies) & broccoli in my crisper.
Next, throw in your chopped “soft” vegetables. I had a zucchini & some button mushrooms lurking around, so in they went.
A couple of spoonfuls of any sauce will do – plum sauce, black bean sauce, even tamarind paste. However, current favourite is Thai sweet chilli sauce. Beware: this is where you’ll get your excess calories if you aren’t careful!
Last, add the fragile foods that won’t stand up to too much stirring. I added bean sprouts and shrimp right at the end just to heat through.
If you want a starch with it, Japaneese udon noodles are delicious. I didn’t add any starch for this particular meal because I really wanted the extra bit of peanut butter and needed to think about my WW points.
