Picture this: it's Friday night and you're craving a salty and sweet mix of delightful Chinese food, but you don't want the added MSG, high sodium or calories. Well... this recipe is your dream come true! Packed with flavor and nutrients, this 'Chinese fried rice' inspired dish will keep you feeling satiated and pleased. The best part is: you most likely already have all the ingredients in your kitchen! 

You will need:

  • 1 can preservative-free carrots and peas
  • 1 can sweet corn (sodium free)
  • Organic quinoa
  • 2 bouillon cubes (I used beef but feel free to use veggie or chicken)
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 3 organic eggs
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Braggs soy seasoning (optional)
  • Pepper (to taste)

    Directions:
    Boil water with bouillon cubes and add desired amount of quinoa (it's usually a 2:1 water to quinoa ratio).
    On a separate pan, lightly fry scrambled eggs until almost-well done. After placing eggs in a small bowl, use that same pan (with olive oil added) and add diced onion. Cook onions until they are caramelized. 
    When the quinoa is finished cooking, let it rest for 10 minutes with the lid on. Once the 10 minutes has passed, stir quinoa until it is fluffy. Add cooked eggs, sauteed onion and drained carrots/peas/corn from the can.
    Stir all ingredients together. Add 1-2 tablespoons of Braggs Amino Seasoning along with a dash of pepper.

Eat, share and enjoy this delicious and easy-to-make recipe!

*To make this recipe vegan, omit the eggs for diced tempeh or tofu, and cook quinoa in a veggie-broth!*

 

Thank you, Jess!

    Is it possible to melt away one to two pounds of stubborn body fat every single day?
    It sounds insane, but according to the scientific proof — and the thousands who have already
    done it themselves using this secret — the answer is YES.

    You will never guess how it’s done… (Hint: It’s NOT about taking sketchy pills or killing
    yourself at the gym).

    That’s right – and it’s important to know that this isn’t about some “magic weight loss
    shake,” or the “calories out-calories in” model that the medical community has been
    trying to brainwash us with for decades.

    Not at all.

    It’s about a simple yet potent method developed and perfected by Brian Flatt – who is a
    health& nutritionist coach, and also a personal trainer who has been in the fitness world
    for over a decade.

    Brian is also the owner of R.E.V. Fitness, a personal training facility based in Southern
    California…

    He is known as an experienced nutritionist, who explains inside this short video exactly
    why — despite what the medical community says — it’s possible to drop one to two pounds
    of stubborn body fat every single day in a healthy way.

    Not only that — people across the globe are also reporting that they’ve dropped 2–3
    dress sizes, 2–4 inches off their waist, have flatter stomachs, and lost fat off their hips,
    thighs, and butt in just 21 days. But…

    Don’t just take my word for it.
