Healthy Chicken Fried Rice

There aren’t many places where my husband, kids, and I would all order the same thing!! However, when it comes to Chinese takeout, we LOVE chicken fried rice. I’m pretty certain that version is loaded with butter and salt…and is delicious! 😳 But tonight I decided to lighten up the recipe for dinner. It was super easy, turned out great, and was definitely a crowd pleaser in our house! 😊

Ingredients:

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast

2 cups cooked brown rice

2 cups frozen veggies (I used peas, carrots, corn, and green beans)

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 eggs

4 T. Bragg Liquid Aminos (soy sauce alternative)

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Cut the chicken into small pieces. Season the chicken with a little salt and pepper and sauté it in a little olive oil. While the chicken is cooking, scramble the eggs and steam the frozen veggies. Add the onion to the almost fully cooked chicken. Once the onion is translucent, add the cooked brown rice, steamed veggies, and Bragg Liquid Aminos. Mix well and heat through. Enjoy!!

Baked Chicken With Carrots and Potatoes

I’m sure some of you can relate to searching Pinterest for yummy AND healthy recipes!!  Sometimes I find a SIMPLE recipe, but it can be loaded with butter, salt, etc.  But I love a good challenge and I love making a recipe a little bit healthier!  This was a really EASY recipe I whipped together tonight.  It’s always a bonus when the kids and hubby approve!!

Baked Chicken With Carrots and Potatoes

Ingredients:

3-4 Thin Chicken Breasts

2 c Small Red-Skinned Potatoes

2 c Baby Carrots

3 Tbsp. EVOO

2 Tbsp. Honey

1 Tbsp. Dijon Mustard

1 Tbsp. Low Sodium Soy Sauce

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. Oregano

1/2 tsp. Basil

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  In a medium sized bowl, mix EVOO, honey, dijon mustard, soy sauce, garlic, oregano, and basil.  Spray a 9X13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.  Brush the mixture onto both sides of the chicken and place the chicken in the middle of the dish.  Toss the potatoes and carrots in the remaining mixture and place in the baking dish around the chicken.  If there is any of the sauce leftover, top the chicken and veggies in the baking dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.  Enjoy :-)

Coconut Steamed Veggies

Throughout the day I make sure to drink PLENTY of water!  You also have the option to drink morning and/or afternoon tea.  The meal plan is really very simple as you can see.  One of the days while completing the 3-Day Refresh, I went to lunch with my children and their friends.  I just brought my lunch along with me!  It was easy to stay on track :-)

This time I went into the 3-Day Refresh really just wanting to focus on how I feel.  So I did not even weigh myself!  Sometimes we can all get too wrapped up in the number on the scale…myself included (in the past I have lost 4-6 lbs)!!  I can tell I lost weight for sure…I feel it!  But I just needed to really kick the cravings I had going on and give me that boost to get on track.  I’ve done the 3-Day Refresh quite a few times and it always does the trick!

If you are looking for a little jumpstart with your health and fitness, this is a great way to do it!  You can do it before you start a new program or right in the middle.  It’s effective either way!  Oh and I had a great group to keep me accountable!  It’s always nice to complete the program (or any program) with people working towards the same goals!!
