My birthday is next month and I will be traveling to sunny Las Veags. I can't wait and I am so excited to celebrate with all of my close friends. To prepare for this vacation I've decided to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle and start a new work out. I try to healthy as it is but I do "treat" myself sometimes to things like French Fries, Bread, Pancakes *yummy* but for this trip I won't be even treating myself until I get to Vegas. I am going HARD! When it comes to eating healthy and wanting to look great, I think you have to be mentally prepared to make it happen. I have a pretty tough will power (I am somewhat stubborn) so it's always been easy for me to stay disciplined when I have a goal in mind.
I will be sharing with you once a week some of the healthy food choices I have been making. I also plan on doing a future post/video on my work out. Check out this shrimp stir fry I made with whole grain rice vermicelli. My friend @kelzbellznyc suggested this. I hate whole gain pasta, whole wheat pasta because of the grainy taste that it has so I was a bit concerned but Kelly reassured me that this wouldn't taste "grainy" at all. If you are interested in creating this meal here is what you will need:
Sauce: Low Sodium Soy Sauce, Garlic, Ginger, and Honey
You will also need: whole grain rice vermicelli (Whole Foods), chopped onions, chopped red and green peppers and eggs (optional)
Mix all of the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside. I am not a measuring person, I just used my eye to decide how much I should add and I did a taste test : ) Soak your noodles in a bowl to loosen them up. Boil your noodles for 3-4mins (break them apart because they can be rather long). Once the noodles are cooked set them aside. Add oil to a wok (I like using Joyce Chen Wok Oil with Ginger). Add your onions and peppers and cook until soften. Add chicken or shrimp. Add your cooked eggs (optional). Add your already prepared sauce. Add your already prepared noodles. Mix until everything is hot.
WHY I LOVE IT:
It’s healthy, low fat and FILLING! I portioned out one bowl and could not eat anymore because I was so stuffed. I made enough for a few days so when I get home I don’t have to worry about dinner.
