|I forgot to take a picture of our meal at the table|
so this is our leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
For example some staples that have changed for us:
Pure maple sugar and honey for most sweeteners)
Whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour (although for some recipes I use part whole wheat, part all-purpose)
Homemade whole wheat bread
Grass fed, pasture raised meats
Organic dairy products
Lots of fruits and vegetables
I know these changes we have made in our diet do cost more but what I realized is that I am saving so much money by NOT buying all of the processed foods I used to get on a regular basis. For example I used to go down the cereal isle and get a couple different boxes of cereal every week. I no longer go down that isle and stick to eggs, homemade whole wheat pancakes & waffles, plain yogurt with homemade berry sauce, whole wheat toast, etc. which are much better for us and they cost a fraction of what boxed cereals do.
You know I love Asian food and beef and broccoli is one of my favorites. I LOVE this garlic-gingery-soy sauce. This was the first time making this meal and Ryan said I need to put this into the rotation of favorite meals. Hope you enjoy!
Beef & Broccoli
3 Tbls soy sauce
In a small bowl combine: soy sauce, liquid aminos, rice wine vinegar, honey, miso & cornstarch. Set aside.
Heat a large skillet or wok to medium high heat and add oil, ginger & garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Add beef and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring frequently. Add snow peas and broccoli and continue to cook for 3 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture and simmer for an additional 2 minutes until sauce thickens a little.
Serve over organic brown rice.
(I buy my brown rice from Trader Joe's in the frozen section - we love it!)
