Read as an infommerical

Does scanning nutrition labels make you dizzy?

Does eating raw food make you cranky?

I apologize for my infommerical shenanigans, but I just couldn’t help myself. Seriously, does this not remind you of something that you would see at 3am on T.V. being advertised as the best thing since sliced bread?

Well, all I can say is that if Bob Harper from The Biggest Loser is using this stuff then it can’t be that bad. I actually tried this recipe below written by Bob and I will say it was a lighter take on stir-fy and was rather delicious. The Bragg’s Liquid Aminos really does taste like soy sauce.

Give it a try and let me know. This may be the new ketchup. Just saying.

Bob Harper’s Stir Fry

Serves 3 to 4

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes

Cooking spray
1 cup uncooked quinoa
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons diced jalapenos
At least 1 pound of vegetables (whatever you want!)
6 to 10 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 package of tempeh, sliced into matchsticks (*you can use meat if like, just cook before the veggies)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Salt, to taste
1 tablespoon Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (*can be found at Whole Foods)
1/4 cup raw cashews

Cook quinoa to package directions then set aside.

In a large skillet with a few sprays of cooking spray, add in garlic and jalapeno. Toss around for minute then add in all the veggies, starting with the veggies that take the longest first and ending with the ones that just need to be warmed through. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Toss the veggies around then add in the tempeh to warm through. Add the red pepper flakes, lime juice, a little salt and the Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Toss every thing around so all the veggies are coated then top with cashews and serve with quinoa.
