Yummiest Stir-Fry EVER!

This is the basic recipe for what my husband calls “AWESOME!”

I’m pretty sure you can tweak this to your own preferences and it will still remain awesome.

Peel a few carrots, then cut them on the bias.  In a frying pan, add whatever oil/fat is acceptable on your diet (I used olive oil).  Toss in some finely diced onion and garlic to soften.  After about two minutes, add the carrots.

Onions, garlic and carrots in a pan…smells good!

While the carrots are cooking, cut some bell peppers into strips, then cut the strips into thirds for bite sized pieces.  Toss those in the pan and let them cook for a couple minutes.

It’s starting to get colorful…

Add in some leftover meat cut or pulled into bite sized pieces.  We had roast beef the night before, so that’s what I used.

Starting to look like dinner!

Cook it long enough to reheat.  At this point, I added some sea salt and pepper.  Stir it around, and then add some baby spinach leaves.

Wait…am I cooking a salad?

Start stirring until the spinach leaves are all wilted.


Immediately plate up, and sit back to enjoy a little bit of heaven in your mouth!

(It really is good – I modified it for my diet by using JUST onion, garlic, oil, carrots and beef, and it was divine!  That’s how I know you can tweak this with just about anything and make it delicious.)



-leftover meat, cut into bite sized pieces (I used leftover roast beef)

    Thank you for these wonderful recipes! I’ve been more than overwhelmed at my lack of choice for food for both me and my toddler (I’m still breast feeding at 24 months) — we’re both on the top 6 elimination diet + no legumes or beef (my son reacts to the common protein in milk and beef). Reading your blog has been an inspiration and eye-opening. Thank you SO, SO much!!!

      Wow – still nursing at 24 months is GREAT!! Good for you!

      Ooh…the common protein reaction…that’s lousy! I’m so sorry, hon! I was sincerely praying my kids wouldn’t have that, and my prayers were answered (so far – haven’t trialed Zac on beef yet). Having to eliminate beef would be extremely difficult for me. You’re pretty awesome for doing that for your LO!

      I’m so glad you’re enjoying the blog and the recipes. Nice to meet you!

    Glad to have found your blog. I am gonna to try and adapt some recipes to use. I am on a comprehensive elimination/inflammation diet. Basically I can eat organic chicken, beef, fish, veggies (minus peppers and nightshades), fruits (minus oranges), pinenuts, cocunut, and rice…that’s it! I am on day 2. I am amazed at just how much I need to be home in order to accomplish this style of eating. That has been the hardest part!

      Hi Megan! I’m glad you stopped by! Wow…that sounds like a major lifestyle change for you. I really hope it helps you feel better.

      You’ll get the hang of it. Cooking from scratch does take more time, but eventually it gets faster. Hopefully the benefits outweigh the nuisance of being in the kitchen all the time!

      Let me know if you ever want some advice or help with adjusting recipes. I’ve gotten pretty good at that. 😉 Hugs, and best of luck!

Comments are love! Tell me what you're thinking!
