almond sauce stir fry

Hi!  I had the best dinner tonight!  I was actually going to talk about my green monster from this morning first, but I’m so happy about how dinner turned out that I just can’t wait.

After work today, I headed straight to the gym to do some lifting.  When I got back, I was already starving, but Jon had to head back to work for about 30 minutes for a meeting, and I wanted to wait on him to eat.  So, I threw a great combo of cucumber, carrot, apple and lemon into the juicer – it turned out pretty good.  I’ve only used my juicer a handful of times since I got it at Christmas (review to come!), and I still haven’t figured out my favorite combination yet.  Any fun suggestions?

Anyway, so I sipped on my juice and started chopping up some veggies while I waited.  I seriously was craving a huge plate of vegetables….but, I’ve been really focusing on getting more protein into each meal, so I decided to try something new by incorporating protein and healthy fat into my “sauce.”  I tossed cauliflower, carrots, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in my big skillet and began sautéing them in just a bit of EVOO.  Using Thai peanut sauce as my inspiration, I put in a tablespoon of almond butter and a splash of tamari and mixed and heated it through.  I did have to add just a touch more EVOO as well to eliminate dryness.  When it was all done, and hubby was home of course, I laid the vegetable mixture on a bed of quinoa (more protein!) and tadaa!  It was time to eat!

Let me tell you, this meal was so good.  It had a bit of an Asian flavor with just the right amount of AB and tamari…and a sprinkle of seeds of course!  I could seriously have this meal every night…but I won’t.  Gotta keep things interesting!

Before I go, let me tell you really quickly the best thing that happened this morning.  I’ve been drinking green monster, thanks to Angela, for about a year now.  My sweet hubby gets up to make it for me before I leave at 6am.  Ever since school started back up, there has just been something…off…about the texture.  I couldn’t figure it out.  I had switched from soy to almond milk in an effort to limit my soy consumption a bit, so I thought that may be the problem, but we switched back and saw no improvement!  So, I suggested that this morning he should try adding a little more milk and leaving out the flaxseed…and it worked!  You have no idea what a happy girl I am to have my beloved monster back to normal…it’s my livelihood at 6am!  Yea!!

That’s it for now.  I am so looking forward to the weekend already, and it’s only Tuesday!  Have a great night☺
