Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Turkey Stir-Fry!

When I first began my weight-loss / fitness journey, my trainer introduced me to this recipe, and because it's so easy, so quick, and so tasty, it has stayed in my regular lineup ever since. The family loves it, I love it, and it's super portable, too! Serve it over a bed of brown rice if you've got room for carbs!

Easy Stirfry
by Tabitha Citro, tweaked by Chelle Stafford ;-)

Makes 6 servings

INGREDIENTS:
●  1.25 lb Ground Chicken Breast (* I've also done this with extra lean ground turkey breast, Buffalo, Pork, and Beef - as long as it's EXTRA LEAN it will work!) 
●  1 bag Broccoli Slaw (produce section of grocery store - includes: Shredded broccoli stems, carrots and red cabbage) - 12 oz
●  1 cup chopped peppers, raw (use a variety of colors!)
●  1 cup chopped mushrooms, raw
●  1 can (8 oz) sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and drained
●  Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb
●  *optional - 1/2 tsp fresh minced ginger
●  Bragg's Liquid Aminos (I use the spray bottle)
●  *optional - cooked brown rice (1/2 cup per serving)

DIRECTIONS:
● Brown the meat, season with Mrs Dash. Drain and set aside.
● Add Broccoli slaw, mushrooms & peppers to pan, lightly season with Mrs Dash. Add 1/2 cup water (or chicken broth). Cover pan and allow to steam for about 5 minutes.
● Add meat back into pan, add water chestnuts and spray liberally with Bragg's Aminos. Mix well and serve.
● Serve over brown rice if desired (adjust nutrition info accordingly).

  2. Is this really health? It looks really sinful and mouthwatering. You should share more wonderful recipes to debunk myths about healthy eating equating to unappetizing creations. Great job in cooking this one up.
