If I’m looking for a quick and easy dinner idea, stir fry almost always pops into my mind. You can really save time by buying pre-cut veggies or even a pre-assembled stir fry veggie mixes at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. If you do, make sure to pick up a mango during your next shopping trip. The sweet/sour flavor of this tasty tropical fruit is a GREAT addition to stir fry. Mangoes also add vitamin C and some extra carbohydrate for all you active people. Get yer Carbs!

Please excuse this ridiculously poor excuse for a picture. I promise this tastes really yummy. This was a quick snapshot so I wouldn’t forget the ingredients. Ultimately, I forgot to get a nice “glamour” shot to share with you all.

Mango Stir Fry

Sometimes food isn’t glamorous, it’s just delicious. I think that’s good enough for me most days.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
