Stir Fry Chicken

Standard
Stir Fry Chicken

I absolutely love stir-fry of any kind. I love it because I can season it how I’d like and make as healthy as I’d like. I don’t do a whole lot of additives, I just season it the way I think it should taste and if you ask me it tastes pretty authentic.

Here’s my take on stir fry chicken.

Some benefits of the consumption of ginger include:

  1. It reduces pain and inflammation, making it valuable in managing arthritis, headaches, and menstrual cramps.
  2. It has a warming effect and stimulates circulation.
  3. It inhibits rhinovirus, which can cause the common cold.
  4. It inhibits such bacteria as Salmonella, which cause diarrhea, and protozoa, such as Trichomonas.
  5. In the intestinal tract, it reduces gas and painful spasms.
  6. It may prevent stomach ulcers caused by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen.

Whose got the juice now !?!?!?

Juicing… by far the best thing ever. Its not too pricey to do and the health benefits are great. Its better than buying juice at the store because it does not have all the impurities and additives. I like to use mine as a meal replacement. The only thing that I’ve noticed, is it has to be consumed in about 7 days. If not it will at least from my experience will go sour and no one like sour juice.If interested in this healthy meal replacement option which can give you lots of energy see below:

My ingredients-

Fruit

White Vinegar

Mason Jars with Lids to secure

efresh fruit and veggies

Organic Apples

Carrots

Pears

Ginger

Pineapple

Carrots

Beets

Step 1: Wash all your fruit well or temporarily soak in your sink with a 1/4 cup of white vinegar. This gets rid of any bugs or waxy build up your fruit may have on it. I also like to rinse my fruit well with a little dish or hand soap just to be on the safe side.

Rince your grapes well

Step 2: Slice all your fruit…except for your grapes and carrots, they don’t have to be sliced.

Step 4: Once you’ve finished juicing you’ll notice a thick froth or gas on your juice. You’ll want to dip it off the top and then screw your tops on really well.
