Chicken and Veggie Stir-fry

9 Apr

After a long week of classes, I love looking forward to date nights with my boyfriend :)

Lots of times we go out to make it easier on ourselves when we’re tired, but since he knows I love to cook, last night we made dinner together. I love nights like these!

His parents came up for Easter this past week and we had SO many leftover fresh vegetables from the big meal we all prepared (that us college kids don’t normally have on us) :) So we decided to use them up!

What a better way to enjoy a lot of fresh, colorful veggies, than making a stir-fry?! The healthy way of course without all the added heaps of oil:) Added some teriyaki cooked chicken to the mix once the veggies were all cooked, and bam! A good dinner we certainly had. A healthy one too loaded with lots of vegetables and protein packed chicken!

Cooking with coconut oil has so many added benefits, and gives it a great taste. If you haven’t tried it yet, please do! I even put it on toast with a touch of sugar for a yummy, sweet snack:)

Then to finish off the meal we had some mashed regular potatoes and sweet potato casserole on the side of this delicious stir-fry :) Mmm, it was a yummy night to say the least! Here’s the recipe for the stir-fry, so easy!

    Garnish with the chopped walnuts and serve immediately.

    Of course, the opposite is also true’but you cannot eat outside food every day.
    The most typical kind is genuinely the virtual way of cooking.
