Nommy -Licious Veggie Stir Fry – Low Fat, High in Protein & Fiber

stir fry

Fresh Veggies here included; Pepper, Broccoli (high in fiber), Zucchini, Tomatoes

So easy and so good for you…

OK, get a cutting board out. Cut up any of your favorite veggies to your desired size. Usually the smaller you chop the faster it cooks. Use a wok or a big stir Fry pan and spray it with some Organic Pam. The Pam is not required. I normally use some spices. You can use which ever ones your taste buds like the best. I used some chili powder, black pepper and cayenne. You can use a stir fry sauce also. Be careful on the sauces you use. Read the ingredients . You do not want to use ones high in fat or sugars. I usually add some water and hot sauce. It has been said that hot sauce can speed up your metabolism too as it raises your body temperature . So why not add just a little even if your not a spicy kinda Nommer. lol .

I NEVER add extra oils. They add too much fat and give me stomach pains. UGHH I do not need that. If your an oil person I recommend only small amounts. Hence this is why I used a tad of the Pam.

I now chop up some tofu. (High in Protein) If you want you can add some egg whites for extra protein. This can be altered as desired.

Cook on low to medium heat for about 10 minutes. Place on top of some cooked Multi grain rice. The whole grains help promote a healthy digestive system and they are high in fiber which helps you feel more full for as longer duration also. I have a rice cooker, but I am sure the rice you purchase will display cooking directions.
