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.

Mango Ginger Stir Fry

1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 c. shredded cabbage
1 c. sugar snappeas
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced thinly
1/4 red onion, sliced thinly
1 inch ginger, peeled and diced small
1 mango, seeded, peeled, and sliced thin
3 Tbsp. coconut aminos or wheat-free tamari
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
2 Tbsp. sesame oil

red pepper flakes to taste (optional)

  1. Heat oils in a large skillet or Wok until hot.
  2. Add vegetables and stir frequently until colors become more vibrant and onion becomes fragrant. Remove veggies and set aside.
  3. Add a drizzle more of sesame oil and toss in the mango and shrimp. Stir until shrimp is almost opaque.
  4. Add coconut aminos, ginger, and red pepper flakes. Let cook for a minute or so and then toss with vegetables to serve.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
