Holiday Vegetables

Happy ending of the holidays! Just New Year’s to go.  I hope you’re having a fantastic and healthy season!

I made this vegetable dish for both Christmas Eve and Christmas…and forgot to get any pictures of it!  But it was a big hit and super easy, so I wanted to share.

Holiday Vegetables

Ingredients:
1 medium zucchini, sliced into 1/2″ strips
1 red pepper, sliced
1 shallot, diced
1 cucumber, sliced
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp olive oil
1 T stevia in the raw

Method:
– Combine vegetables in a large bowl.
– Add remaining ingredients.
– Toss (or put lid on and shake).
– Let sit for at least 24 hours.
– Enjoy!

Easy enough, right?  A white balsamic vinegar might be really nice here.  The “holiday” part comes from the vegetables being red, green and white. But I’m sure this would be equally good with other vegetables.  I may play with this recipe soon!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Sometimes, I want something combined in a pan…rare for me, who doesn’t like their food to touch, but sometimes it just sounds delicious.  That’s when I start to get creative and actually cook a meal!

This came out just as I wanted it.  But no one tried it but me.  Kind of perfect in that I had meals for 4 days.  But the likelihood I’ll make it again goes down when I’m the only one having it!  But, here’s what I made just in case I DO want it again or you want to try!  And it’s 21 Day Fix-ed!

File Dec 23, 4 35 10 PM

Ingredients:

About 1 lb chicken, cubed
2 cups broccoli
2 cups frozen peppers and onions
1 Tbsp fresh garlic, minced
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1 Tbsp fresh scallions, diced
2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
4 tsp coconut oil (divided use)
A garlicky seasoning blend (I used the 21 Day Fix All Purpose Seasoning)
Sea Salt to taste

Method:

Heat wok or pan on high heat for 1 minute.  Add half of coconut oil and let melt.

Add onions and peppers.  When no longer frosty, add broccoli and stir-fry for about 3 minutes.  Add soy sauce and seasoning.  Stir-fry for a minute and transfer to bowl.

Clean pan and return to heat for 1 minute.

Season chicken with sea salt and seasoning.

Melt remaining coconut oil in pan.  Add chicken and stir-fry for 1 minute.  Add garlic, ginger and scallions and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is browned and cooked through.

Add vegetables to chicken and give it a whirl!  Enjoy!
