Low Carb Chicken Stir Fry

Low Carb Chicken Stir Fry

If you guys want to know what I eat every Monday while watching The Bachelor, this is it haha. I love it because it is low-carb, high protein, has lots of veggies and tastes scrumptious! Plus it’s the perfect meal to have when you are just wanting to chill on the couch for dinner, and not sit at the table.

The secret to making it low carb is cauliflower! That’s right, there is no rice in this stir fry, but I promise, you won’t even miss it!

First things first, cook your chicken. You can honestly cook it however you want, but this is my go-to way.

While the chicken is cooking, chop all of your vegetables, and puree your cauliflower in a food processor or blender.

Once the chicken is done, remove, set aside, and cut into bite sized pieces. Add one TBSP of coconut oil into a pan. First add broccoli in on medium heat until soft (about 3 minutes) then add the rest of the vegetables.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of veggies and cook until they start to soften and brown.

Next, move vegetables to one side. Then on the other side, scramble one egg. Once it is pretty much scrambled, mix it in with the veggies.

After you mix in the eggs. Add the purred cauliflower, fish oil, and low sodium soy sauce.

Skort: old, similar // Top  // Clutch: old, similar // Watch: old, similar // Shoes similar similar // Earings: old, similar 

I’m not sure what it is about summer, but it makes me obsessed with pastels. They make me feel bright and relaxed all while giving an effortlessly classy look.

& this outfit particularly has been my go-to all summer. I have worn it to work, I wear it to dinner, I wear it to get drinks with friends, I wear it when I can’t make up my mind on anything else to wear…

Are you guys catching on here?? I wear it a lot.

I originally wasn’t going to do this post because the photos were kind of a trial shoot after a really long day…. but they I realized that’s why I HAD to post it! The fact that I had worn it all day, came home to take pictures, then went to dinner and still felt put together means a lot.

I also want to mention this clutch. It was a gift from my darling little last summer when she was interning with Elaine Turner here in Houston. Since this clutch is no longer available, I went back to Elaine’s website to see if she had anything similar, but instead, I found something better! This clutch is not only beautiful, but it is apart of Elaine’s campaign gearing up for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A portion of the sales from this campaign are donated to the Cancer Support Community. So basically, it’s a double win with this clutch!

All of my items are linked above!
