I love it when people are really good at their jobs. Today’s quote comes from a master of his profession. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” ~Dr. Seuss
Yesterday I bought a wok. It is a great cooking investment because it speeds the process of cooking healthy making vegetables cooked but crisp in 10 minutes or less. I love it! Below is the recipe I experimented with tonight. It can easily be tweaked to suit your taste buds.
1. Marinate and let set 20 minutes or longer:
4 chicken breasts (sliced in strips), 2 T reduced sodium soy sauce, 4 T cooking sherry, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
4 C vegetables (I used 1 yellow onion, 1 small cabbage, and 2 bell peppers, and 5 to 10 cloves of garlic. Mushrooms and green onions are great too!)
3. Heat on medium high:
2 T peanut or sunflower seed oil and 1 T ground or minced ginger
4. Add chicken and cook until barely pink
5. Add vegetables
6. Mix in a small bowl:
1/2 C reduced sodium chicken stock, 2 T cornstarch, 2 T sugar or honey, 2 T reduced sodium soy sauce
7. Add sauce to the stir fry and serve immediately with brown rice or without. This is a great, low carb recipe with numerous health benefits.

Ingredients Include: 1 cup cooked oats, 1 egg white, 1 tsp sugar or honey, 2 tsp sugar-free dark chocolate powder, and ground cinnamon
Directions: Make meringue by whipping 1 egg white. After the egg white begins to form, add 1/4 tsp of sugar and 2 tsp of dark chocolate powder to the egg white and keep mixing on high until the mixture is completely formed. Fold the egg white mixture along with 3/4 tsp of sugar into the oatmeal. Sprinkle cinnamon on top to help stabilize blood sugar levels and extend the bold taste.
Tip: Switch it up by adding bananas, coconut, peanut butter, or nuts.
