Simple Stir Fry: Chicken/Brussels Sprouts/Green Beans

A simple stir fry is one that contains only a few ingredients and can be made in less than 15 or 20 minutes. Making stir fries often is a great lifestyle solution for weight control and increasing produce in your diet. It is so quick to whip up that you would never be tempted to choose fast food.

The best way to make a simple stir fry is to:

  • Choose two vegetables that pair well

  • Choose a type of meat or vegan/vegetarian substitution or tofu

  • Choose a store bought sauce to use

  • Choose a grain to serve the stir fry over

This simple strategy has helped me pull off many great meals when time is short. I have no need to purchase any processed meals with this strategy. My refrigerator is always full of produce, so I always have many different options to choose from. I have tried to have a little fun with the idea along the way by including my kids in the mix. I pull out a bunch of vegetables and ask them to choose two that look like they might go together. We have had some interesting stir fries that I would not have thought of!

Here is a simple stir fry that I whipped up in a pinch.

I did not even bother to make a grain for this dinner meal. I simply sliced a loaf of artisan bread, and quickly made a fruit salad of chopped watermelon, strawberries and banana.

The meal was quick, delicious, and included lots of healthy produce. Cooking simple stir fry meals is a
healthy diet habit

Below is another variation of a green bean stir fry! If you don't like the Brussels Sprouts, substitute in the Cauliflower or another vegetable that you love!
