Meal Prep: Asian-inspired Chicken Stir Fry

March 29, 2019 - Posted by Melissa

 

Our coaches have been hard at work planning, prepping and assembling recipes that are simple, healthy, and delicious. The goal is to show you how you can prepare 5 different meals at the beginning of the week and hopefully take a little off your daily to-do lists Monday through Friday. The recipes that we feature require minimal ingredients and a short prep time.  As you will see, you can modify all the recipes to fit your preferences.  Taking a little bit of time at the beginning of the week to set yourself up for success during the week will make those healthy choices the easy choices! 

Our first recipe we will feature is the Asian Inspired Chicken Stir Fry.  We take simple ingredients such as peppers mushrooms and chicken, and create a delicious homemade stir fry.  The sauce is made from ingredients you likely already have at home such as soy sauce and brown sugar!  Feel free to add in or change out the protein source and vegetables to fit your preferences!

Enjoy!
