Coming back from my big vacation, although eating fairly in my calorie range, I definitely was in need to replenish my micronutrients. It’s hard when flexible dieting to remember that we DO need our vegetables despite being able to eat whatever you want.
I do like the idea and often practice alternating days of focusing on hitting my macros but having fun with it and having days where I load my body up with micronutrients.
On micronutrient days I often will make a big pot of chicken veggie soup with tons of veg or a big stir fry.
I seen my turmeric powder in my cupboard the other day and tried to remember the last time I cooked with it and also remembered how fricken healthy it is. So I decided to incorporate that into my stir fry. Usually I don’t blog my stir frys as they are always so random and I use whatever is kicking around in my fridge.
This stir fry though felt like such a great way to replenish my body with so many vitamins and minerals and also turned out quite delicious so I thought I would put the recipe up here. It will be a good tool to have for next time I go away and stray from eating super healthy.
Serves 2 (can double the recipe easily)
Cals per serving 335
10 ounces or 2 small chicken breasts
1 small onion
2 cloves of garlic sliced or minced
100g or heaping handful of brussel sprouts cut in half
2 stalks of celery chopped
1 Zucchini sliced
½ cup frozen corn
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp soya sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp dijon mustard
Heat large skillet with half the olive oil. Slice chicken into small strips and brown in the pan with a dash of salt and pepper. Once chicken is no longer pink, throw in onion and brussel sprouts with the rest of the olive oil and crank the heat. Add a pinch of salt. Stir until veggies soften. Add celery, corn, and garlic to pan and continue to stir. Season with soya sauce, dijon, garlic powder, and turmeric. Turn heat down to medium and add zucchini. Stir and cook until zucchini is cooked through or at desired texture.
Feeeeeel the goodness flowing through your body!
