Healthy Spring Stir Fry


Yes, stir fry can be clean eating and healthy,

and best of all, be DELICIOUS!

I put this simple dish together in the morning for my lunch at work and was so pleased with the outcome. I could easily be doubled or tripled to feed more than one, and feel free to mix up the veggies and meat as desired. 

Recipe adapted from Skinnytaste
4-6oz chicken breast, cooked and cubed
1/2 cup brown rice, cooked
3tbs egg whites
1 large carrot, chopped
1/2 cup sugar snap peas
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
red onion, slivers
1-2 tbs low sodium sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional: I like garlic)
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tbs olive oil


Mix 1tbs soy sauce,  pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl.
Toss cubed chicken in sauce and set aside.
Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. 
Add onion and cook until partially translucent.
Then add minced garlic, chopped carrots, and snap peas and sir fry until veggies are tender.
Move cooked veggies to one side of the pan and add in the egg whites. 
Stir them until they scramble and then mix in with the veggies.
Mix the veggie-egg mixture with  the cooked rice and sauced chicken. 
Add another 1/2-1tbs soy sauce and toss it all together until well combined.
