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.

PRODUCT ALERT//
Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
.
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.

You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
