Who am I kidding…..no carbs sound like a horrible idea! But, sometimes I do find that they make me a bit more sluggish and it’s good to switch it up with twice the veggies. Now, I do believe if you eat the right carbs, you should have no problems whatsoever & should never worry about counting calories. I’m also a firm believer of eating real food, so carbs or no carbs shouldn’t be a big deal!
I digress….let’s talk about my quick, easy, no carb lunch!
We are heading to the mountains this weekend, so I’m cleaning out my fridge. Not having a ton of time to make anything (busy day at work!) plus, not having a huge amount of food to actually work with…..I pulled out the following:
1 big red pepper
1 small orange pepper
1 whole zucchini
1 big carrot
3 gloves of garlic
An almost empty jar of peanut butter sauce
Red wine Vinegar
I shredded the zucchini and carrot with a cheese grater. Chopped the garlic & pepper, which I sauteed in about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for about 5 minutes (I used a wok). I added the zucchini & carrot mix and sauted for another 5-7. Mixing 2 tablespoons of the amino acids, 1/2 cup of coconut milk, 1 tablespoon of vinegar and a few squirts of sriracha directly in the peanut butter jar…..I shook until mixed. Adding the sauce to the mixture I cooked for another minute or two, threw in a bowl and dove in!
Look at food differently…..and your meals will transform!
