Broccoli & Beef

best broccoli and beef stir fry recipe

You know what my problem is? I’m a huge foodie. Not huge as in physically huge, but huge as in fanatical…though if I let myself eat to my heart’s content I’d quickly become physically huge too.

I daydream about scenarios like eating Chinese take-out every night without any repercussions. You have to admit, it would save us the time spent making dinner and would keep our taste buds excited with a plethora of flavors. Then reality sets in and I remember that Chinese take-out has all those greasy carbs, soy, MSG, sugar and traditional rice and a strict Chinese-Take-Out-Diet would quickly lead to weight gain, bloated belly syndrome and lethargy.

But I don’t stop there….because I still really want my Chinese Take-Out Fantasy to come true. Now I’m locked on. I need healthy Chinese Take-Out!!! So I decide to create my favorite take out recipes with only wholesome ingredients. No soy, no grains, no sugar, no gluten and no dairy. Ahhh some fantasies do come true…

    Yum! This looks great. I love that you have a grain-free potsticker recipe. It makes me want to experiment with grain-free turnip cakes. I miss dim sum.

    what are coconut aminos? Appears to be a dark liquid and a water type liquid?

    Also, where to purchase. Thanks

    Many of your recipes call for honey, coconut aminos, or coconut flour, none of which I can eat because of fructose malabsorption. I would greatly appreciate knowing substitutions. All of your recipes sound great!

      Hi Karen,
      Honey can be subbed for stevia. Coconut flour and coconut aminos don’t have a perfect sub. I hope that this helps and happy cooking!

    Yum…We thought this was delicious, a bit to sweet for our liking though. Easy fix…just reduce the maple syrup! Awesome dish though!!
    Thank you!
