Super Simple Wok Veggies

Super Simple Wok Veggies
Kris Carr did her second online dinner last night.  (Not sure why I wasn't invited?)  She had one of her personal doctors to dinner, Dr. Bock.  He is the kind of doctor you would want treating you if you had an illness.  He seems to not just treat symptoms with medication, but tries to figure out what external things in your environment might be making you sick.  He believes in eating healthy, of course.  I thought it was interesting that he wasn't a vegan, but also liked that people who don't want to be vegan have options.   Dr. Bock believes dairy and wheat are huge contributing factors that cause issues in our body.  He suggested taking omega 3's, and having your Vitamin D levels checked. The most important thing he said we can do for ourselves is to love and laugh!  I am sure Kris will have the chat on her website next week if you didn't catch it.  I will post a link if or when it is up.

I am totally fascinated by a doctor that thinks outside the box.  So many doctors are so quick to just write a prescription and send you on your way.  I was diagnosed many years ago with Premature Ovarian Failure.  This is my "shit pickle" as Kris Carr would call it.  This is one of the factors that pushed me to start to live a cleaner lifestyle.  POF (Premature Ovarian Failure) basically means my body stopped producing estrogen.  Which really sucked and it  made me feel like crap!  So the thought that food could cure me was really appealing.

Truth is, I have a long way to go in terms of eating clean.  I eat sugar,  wheat and occasionally even eat meat.   Even so, I do my best to eat healthy.  I strive to educate myself on what is good for me, and I am feeling better and better everyday.  Many of us have health problems, or unfortunately someday will have problems.  This is one of the reasons I love Kris Carr.  She gets it, and we can learn from all the leg work she has done.

Now on to today's recipe.  Lets just take a moment to appreciate that I made a hot meal! Yah!  Today I made Super Simple Wok Veggies.  I served it with a little rice.  It was really easy to make.  Not too much chopping, and once the rice was done dinner was practically ready. The veggies only took minutes to cook.  Here is what you will need to get a healthy dinner on the table in a jiffy.

The awesome thing about a stir-fry is you can really add whatever you want.  Their is no wrong combo.  So open up your crisper drawer and go for it.  I added some chile sauce to mine. I am happy this recipe was so good & healthy because I didn't get a chance to run today.  There is always tomorrow, right?  I can do it...
