The best thing about stir-fry is the variety! There are sooooo many variations – and most can be prepared and cooked under 20 minutes!
First start by choosing a base – the base of your stir-fry will be a carb source found on your plan such as;
Rice noodles, white/brown rice, pasta, or starch vegetables such as potato, pumpkin, or kumara.
Next choose your vegetables – You can stir-fry any vegetables but our favourites to throw in a hot pan are;
Capsicums (all colours), mushrooms, onion, bok-choy, green beans, cabbage, and broccoli.
Frozen vegetables are another budget and time friendly option.
Choose your protein – This will vary as to what you like and what’s been recommended on your plan – almost any protein will work but here are some of our favourites;
Lean strips of beef, chicken, frozen/fresh prawns, eggs, and tofu!
Finally choose your sauce! Remember a sauce can easily un-do your calorie consumption as many are filled with sugar. Choose a sauce from your reference sheet or create you own using your plan to guide you with the following ingredients;
Fresh squeezed lemon or lime, finely grated ginger, garlic, reduced salt soy sauce, mint, coriander, and if you have a fat allocated some finely chopped nuts or nut butter.
