Leftover Stirfry


I had some leftover lamb and a ton of veggies in my fridge. Also? A organic chicken breast, bean sprouts, peanuts and pretty much everything asian. I knew what i had to do.

Stir-fry.

You can literally use whatever veggies or meat you want. I’m going to list that here

This sunbird seasoning mix is life changing. I’m not saying it is amazingly healthy, but remember folks— portion control!!
Anyways, you wanna make this marinade how they say. If you wanna make it more dope do this— add some sweetener like 1 tbsp, some lemon, some fish sauce, some garlic, some ginger. You wanna go for the UMAMI flavor. Also, please to note you can really make this any damn way you want but this packet is bomb. Also don’t forget the red chili pepper flakes or hot spot of choice!
Cook your chicken up. I didn’t season it much because of all the fresh herbs and marinade that are going on. After your chicken is done add your veggies!
I usually keep a tub of random veggies in my fridge?
Let the veggies cook down.
Take any remaining cooked meat and add to stir fry.
Time for the marinade!!! Add it in!!!
Get your toppings ready. Here I have homegrown bean sprouts, cilantro, green onion, and crushed peanut 🥜
You can’t forget the 🥑
Slice that cado up!
Here is where we have to practice portion control my friends! I love cheating and using this sticky white rice. It’s done in 60 seconds. Sorry I have no shame. I just make sure I only have about 1/4 a cup a serving so I don’t feel guilty!
So as your veggies meat and marinade are simmering, plate up your rice and avocado if that is what you want. You could use noodles or omit the avocado. This is your world guys.
Spoon up your fry, top with toppings and enjoy! Add some sesame seeds for extra class!
Super classy 🙂

We really enjoyed this! The possibilities are endless. If you make this tag me #gracegothealthy on Instagram 🙂 tag me if you make any stir-fry! I am asian obsessed! Thanks for reading guys!

What asian food should I make at home next??

Dinner for breakfast? Always.


Broccoli 🥦 love

Good morning beauties. I woke up this morning feeling lovely. Today is a rowing day for me so that’s def going down this am!

Have you ever woke up and just wanted something that isn’t your typical breakfast? There I was slicing strawberries and bananas up and I just was not in the mood! So what did I do? Sautéd up some broccoli with ponzu sauce garlic ginger etc. I added fresh avocado 🥑 and black sesame on top. As far as eating healthy (80/20 approach for me) I don’t care if you eat fruit salad or stir fry for breakfast. Just eat something with some color.

All my love,

Grace

😃 see you guys later!

I’m back guys!


So…. it’s been a few years!

I’m back and I’m down 158.6 pounds 💪🏼

I Decided to come back because I have completely changed my life and I want to share everything with you.

From my chronic pain. I’m finally ready to open up about that.

My experience with keto, low carb, fasting, and other healthy tips.

My adventures with my #homegym and new #fitness adventures.

My pool! Haha mostly? I want to inspire you all. I’m finally almost to 140 . I’m almost at 175 lbs now from 335. Official goal weight is 140. I will share the ups and downs to get there!

Recipes that I adapt from others and a ton of pictures and ideas to share from my garden with you all 💕

I want to talk to you about products that are helping me with my pain (cbd) has been a lifesaver and all my tips for those chronic pain days plus products that helped or are helping me along my journey and allowing to maintain this lifestyle. I went from. 60 inch waist size 28/30 to now I’m in a size 12/14. Do I have a lower belly? Sure! Is it much better than the alternative yes. I’m working every single day to have self love and care for myself. It truly helps. Don’t be down on yourself, just keep going. We are all competing against ourselves!

Low carb philly cheese steak wrap!


Hey my beautiful babies! ❤️ I’ve missed you all! I’ve been out of commission due to a surgery and a degenerative spine disease. 6 bulging discs, bone spurs, arthritis– basically a ton of chronic pain that isn’t going to get better. I’m having nerve issues as well. Long story short I went through a huge depression for a while and the last thing I wanted to do was blog! I was eating like crazy bad things and laying in bed for months 😁 I am learning how to manage the pain. Anyways– I am back to my positive self after I realized I gained back like 30 lbs by just laying around feeling sorry for myself. I decided to give the keto diet another chance. But this time I did more research. Less protein, more fat. My macros are 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs. It’s apparently working because I am down 9 lbs in 10 days! I am in Ketosis now and am determined to get this weight off to not only get healthy but to help my back issues!

Okay enough rambling! Philly cheese steak subs. Who doesn’t love one? What I don’t love? The 50-60 carbs per sandwich. This recipe I am showing you is so easy and yummy and only 7 carbs!

What you need-

  1. 3 steakumms or chopped steak 
  2. 1 tbsp queso
  3. 1 mission brand low carb tortilla

It’s so simple. Just sauté your mushrooms in oil of choice. Start frying up your steaks.Heat Queso in microwave. Assemble. Enjoy with no guilt!! This meal is so simple to make. I made two wraps for me and my husband in 9 minutes!

Keto is amazing! Look forward to more posts like this from me. Even simple obvious ones. 😂

Is anyone doing low carb right now? Let me know!

I am eating my portion with a low carb tortilla, carrots and pork rinds. Another great low carb option would be celery.

Lazy low carber Guac and chips.


This is the laziest but yummiest snack ever.

You need 4 things.

  1. Pork rinds for “chips”
  2. 1 avocado
  3. 2 tbsp of pre made salsa (this is the lazy part)
  4. Salt to taste

Mash your avocado. Throw in that salsa. Add salt to taste. Bam. Yes we know Guac is extra!!!!!!! 👌🏼 

 

Random “taco” bowl recipe. Lowcarb


When I am running low on groceries I love to make “taco bowls”.

Of course there is no actual taco <unless you made cheese tacos to go with>  but here is my random dinner. 

What I used-

1/2 cup jimmy dean turkey sausage

1/4 cup of squash

1/4 cup of cheese

1 tbsp sour cream

1/5th avocado

Coconut oil, sea salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

I heated up a few tablespoons of coconut oil and let the squash cook down. Added sea salt pepper and a dash of cayenne. Once it was soft I threw in the turkey sausage (it comes precooked so it only takes a minute or two to warm through).  
 Topped with cheese avocado and a bit of sour cream. 
You can make this using whatever veggies meat etc. simple and easy!

Total carbs around 7 or 8 😉

Low Carb Chili.

Measure out ingredients. 1/2 cup pumpkin, 1-2 tbsp's sweetener of choice, 3 tbsp of cream cheese, 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Add to blender. Add 1 cup or so of ice. Add spices. I just do a few shakes of each. Blend in blender. Mixture will be thick because of the whipping cream. Keep adding ice until you get your desired texture.
