For the last few days I have been reading It Starts with Food which has been very helpful in understanding the Whole 30 program. It’s one thing to follow a program. It’s another thing to understand how and why it works. I wish I had found this program many years ago for many reasons.
But, anyhoo… I am still cooking from The Whole 30 guide etc. and still eating really well on really good food. This is Day 18 and for dinner I fixed a good healthy Whole30 meal.
This chicken stir-fry included broccoli, mushrooms, green beans, carrots, and green onions. For the cooking fat I used a mix of coconut oil and sesame oil which gave it great flavor. On the plate I added a little Coconut Aminos (since I cannot have soy sauce) and that added more to the flavor.
The dish was clean, light, and filling. The chicken is browned and right before it is finished you throw some garlic and ginger into the saucepan. Remove the chicken and wipe out the pan. I think this would have been better if the garlic and ginger would have been left and just added more oil and then the veggies. But I always follow the recipe the first time. No matter how you fix it – it’s good.
The recipe is from The Whole30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom page 340.
