I had a friend message me via my mobile device asking for a chicken stir-fry recipe. I actually sent her this one to try. When it came time for me to make dinner tonight I couldn’t the stir fry off my brain. I switched things up.. a lot.. Okay, I don’t even think I looked at the recipe when I went to make it and came up with my own fry. More like an impromptu stir-fry. I opened my fridge and went to work with what I had on hand.
- 8 oz. chicken(I already had grilled chicken already in my fridge)
- 2 celery stalks chopped
- 1 red bell pepper chopped
- 3 tbs Bragg Liquid aminos
- 2 tbs Olive oil
- 2 C. Green Beans
- 1/2 Yellow onion chopped
- Mrs. Dash (Original)
- Chop all your veggies and sauté in oil and Liquid aminos till soft
- Sprinkle on Mrs. Dash
- Add chicken
- Stir well
- Serve on top of rice.
Check out this little find at Costco..
My rice cooker will now collect dust.. Because I kind of, sort of like this rice better.. Its like sticky rice that is ready to eat in 90 seconds.
I’m a huge fan of Braggs amino acids
It is a Vegetable protein made from soy beans, it contains 16 amino acids and is gluten free. It contains less sodium then other leading soy sauce’s. It worked well with tonight’s meal. I found it just at my local grocery store in the organic section.
I’m still feeling sick today, last night I had a fever and today it is just my throat, ears and head.
I’m the person who refuses to be sick and not listen to my body till it screams at me.
I know, I know.. I should practice what I preach.. but my job doesn’t allow much time for sickness. Part of being a fitness instructor is when you walk into the room you leave all your problems at the door. Even if I had a crummy day, and even if I was not feeling 100% I put on my best face and by the end of class I always feel better.
However.. last night that was not the case.. I made it through both classes and I came home and crashed on the couch and did not move until jimmy Kimball started screaming from the television. I took some IBU and slept till about 8:30 this morning. My husband was so helpful to take care of the twinners while I have been down for the count.
Today, I did do this workout. NO jumping or running involved so I figured I could make it through it. Marathon training has taken a backseat this week.. I may still do a lifting workout while I am sick but I don’t run. I can’t breath, so if I throw cardio in there then my head might explode. Although.. when Saturday gets here, I might have to push back my “long run” until I feel better.
While I was upstairs changing this is what I came down to.. (note: I was probably upstairs for 3 minutes..)
Guilty as charged! I couldn’t help but laugh.. I decided just to have a fun playtime and I snagged the cookie cutters (plastic), shovels and we just played in the “sand.” Can’t beat them join them right?
Do you workout when your sick??
FEVER w/ body aches= NO
Symptoms just Neck up = light weights, light cardio—dust off the elliptical..
