Chinese is something i can never give up, and i don’t think anyone could give up the amazing fireworks of flavors that you can get only in stir-fries.

But, that doesn’t mean there’s no healthy alternative. just like everything else, you don’t need to give up your favorite foods just because you’re trying to be more healthy.

 

Chicken and vegetables are full of nutrients, protein and are not a problem at all.

use vegetable oil cooking spray, you will cut back on a lot of calories and unhealthy fats, and personally, i think it tastes better and doesn’t make you feel so heavy after you eat.

soy sauce, and sweet chili can be used in moderation if you are not on a very strict diet, apart from the sugar content, sweet chilli has very little calories and 0g of fats; and if, like me, you decide to do a stir-fry once every now and then, however, if you think this is a dish you’d like to have all the time, make your own sweet chill.

 

HEALTHY SWEET CHILLI SAUCE:

2 red peppers

1 tbsp garlic

1 cup water

1 tbsp cornstarch

2 tbsp white vinegar

 

i chopped up the chill peppers using a food processor, and then mixed everything in the same pan which i later added the chicken in. simple!

 

 

ingredients:

2 chicken breasts

1 tablespoons sweet chilli

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons teriaky sauce.

1 carrot

green beans

 

 

This was just what i found lying in the fridge.

i would also add some red, and yellow bell peppers.

 

 

it’s very filling and extremely satisfying, and in contrast to a chinese meal you would eat out, you can feel so much less regret 🙂
