Skinny Tea Detox Approved Stir-fry

This recipe is extremely simple but the use of aromatics and sesame oil really adds a ton of flavour with no added salt or sugar.

Ingredients

8 ounces of firm tofu cut into chunks (you could use shrimp if desired)

1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger (I freeze my ginger root, it makes it incredibly easy to grate with a microplane and keeps it fresh)

1-2 cloves of garlic minced

2 scallions sliced

1 cup of already shredded rainbow or broccoli slaw (available at COOP and Superstore in the salad section) there is usually some purple cabbage, broccoli, shredded cauliflower, and carrot. It makes it super easy to make this stir fry in a time crunch.

1/2 red bell pepper cut into strips or small dice

6 drops of pure dark sesame oil

2 teaspoons of coconut oil or olive oil

Make it

1. Heat coconut oil (or olive oil) and sesame oil in a wok pan over medium-high heat

2. Add garlic, ginger and scallions to hot wok frying until fragrant

3. Add all the veggies (broccoli slaw, red bell pepper) stirring occasionally

4. Add tofu or shrimp to the pan cooking until cooked through (tofu should be browned and shrimp should be opaque and pink when cooked through)

5. Serve over brown rice!

Breakfast: Skinny Tea Detox Approved

These breakfasts were prepared according to the suggested guidelines on the eating plan for the skinny tea detox (www.skinnytea.com)

Please note I only did the 7 day detox therefor I did not have the opportunity to make that many different breakfast formations. If anyone has any yummy breakfast ideas please send them to me via the Contact page on my blog 🙂

Oatmeal with Bananas, Honey and Greek Yogurt 

1/2 cup of pure quick cook oats (aka gluten free oats) combined with 1 cup of water, microwave on high for two minutes and allow to stand for 1 minute more after cooking is done. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of honey, slice one banana and top with 2 healthy tablespoons of plain, unsweetened greek yogurt.

Greek Yogurt with Morning Glory Granola

Take a 1 cup of plain, unsweetened greek yogurt adding 1-2 tablespoons of honey and top with my Morning Glory Granola recipe (using unsweetened dried cranberries instead and ensuring all the seeds and nuts used are unsalted)

Fruit Salad topped with Greek Yogurt and Flax

Cut up 1-2 cups of assorted fruits (pineapple, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, papaya, watermelon, kiwi fruit) and top with plain unsweetened greek yogurt and a tablespoon of flax seed (this is optional) however it will add some additional flavour and healthy fats.

Rice Cakes, All natural peanut butter and Banana & Strawberries

Take rice cakes, add all natural peanut butter, and add sliced bananas and strawberries to the tops! (this makes an excellent snack during the day too, omit banana if its later in the day-this will help with the weight loss)
