We've been on a serious Asian food kick lately, and it's not always easy to go low carb with Asian food.  There are so many noodles and sauces and a lot of times hidden sugar.  Not to mention the MSG and gluten which often leaves me with a headache and feeling bloated.  This chow mein recipe hit the spot and left me feeling great!

Feel free to play around with the ingredients and add/subtract as you'd like!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium spaghetti squash
  • 1 pound organic chicken (or any protein you'd like to use)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • A few stalks of celery, chopped into small pieces 
  • 3-4 eggs, scrambled
  • Small piece of ginger, grated
  • Liquid or Coconut Aminos (Use coconut aminos if you are following Whole 30)
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bag of cole slaw mix (I use the Trader Joe's organic bag -it has shredded cabbage and carrots)
  • Shredded zucchini (optional - I had this laying around and needed to use it)
  • Optional: 1 tbls organic raw honey - if you're feeling a little adventurous; remember, honey is NOT Whole 30

Directions:

  1. Cook spaghetti squash until you can pierce with a fork. I bake whole at 375 and start at 35-40 min and go from there.
  2. In a large cast iron skillet, I add the onion, garlic, cole slaw veggies, celery, ginger and cook in butter until softened a little.  I add the zucchini at the end so it does't get mushy.  If you are adding honey, throw that in with your aminos to coat the veggies.
  3. Cook chicken and cut into bit sizes.  I usually season with salt, pepper, and maybe a little chili powder for some kick.
  4. Once spaghetti squash is cooked, shred with fork and put into a large bowl.  Add in chicken, veggies and scrambled egg and mix together.  Add additional aminos as needed.

Enjoy!

Vanilla Almond Milk Recipe

Get into ketosis in less then 60 minutes! click here!

I got this awesome recipe for homemade almond milk from my friend Jenna!  I'm all about organic, whole food recipes that are also EASY and inexpensive, and this one definitely fits that. :)

Directions:

  1. Soak 1 cup raw almonds overnight in water
  2. Blend the almonds with 4 cups (32 oz) water, 1 teaspoon organic vanilla and 1-2 organic pitted dates.  (I omitted the dates to cut back on some sugar, and it's still delicious!).  I have a BlendTek, so if you don't have that or a Vitamix, or another high powered blender, I can't promise what will happen! **This is NOT Whole 30 because of the vanilla**
  3. Strain the contents through a nut bag and store in a glass jar.

Seriously, that's it!  I've been making this for a few weeks now to use in my smoothies and it takes me less than 10 minutes.
