I’d have to say, I think stir-fry is one of the most beloved recipes of all time. Why? Besides it tasting so good, it’s incredibly easy to make. So why purchase ready-made frozen stir-fry from your local grocery store (like I admittedly used to do) when you can just make your own? It’s equally delicious without all the preservatives AND you get to customize to your liking, adding your favorite vegetables and protein source.
Ingredients for up to 4 servings:
1.25lb chicken breast
1.5 cup broccolini (or broccoli)
1 cup chopped baby Portobello mushrooms
1 chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped red onion
coconut oil spray
sesame seeds (garnish)
2 tbsp coconut aminos (or low sodium soy sauce)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp raw, organic honey (optional but recommended for flavor)
1 tsp arrowroot starch (optional as a thickener)
1/2 tbsp garlic paste
1 tbsp Sriracha
1 tsp ginger
juice from 2 clementine’s
1. In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the stir-fry sauce.
2. Chop chicken breasts into pieces.
3. Spray a nonstick skillet with coconut oil and set on medium-high heat. Toss in the chicken pieces
and cook until they are about 85% finished.
4. When the chicken has nearly finished cooking, toss in the veggies and stir using a spatula. Cook for
about 3 minutes.
5. Pour in the sauce and stir.
6. Garnish with sesame seeds for added flavor and crunch!

About the Author
Kevin is a fitness enthusiast out of Dallas, TX. When he saw himself in his friend’s Facebook photo he knew it was time to make a change. He was overweight, felt sluggish and had steadily rising blood pressure. So, he did what many people try to do – he started exercising to try to “out train” a poor diet. He quickly learned through periods of weight cycling that if he was going to accomplish his fitness goals, it would have to be through a steady, healthy diet, complemented by hard work in the gym.
He started studying nutrition and got started cooking! In 2012 Kevin started a small blog to share his meals online in order to build a community around healthy food ideas.
The blog was called Fit Men Cook and it had a simple message and belief system – “Our bodies are built in the kitchen, Sculpted in the gym.”
Kevin firmly believes that healthier food options do not have to be boring. Ever. In fact, they are pretty tasty!
Fit (Wo)Men Cook is the “fit” story of all of us. It is taking your individual success stories and things (in nutrition & fitness) that have worked for you, and sharing those ideas with the masses so we can all grow, improve together. Just everyday people – no matter the fitness level or athletic ability – aiming to live the best life possible through fitness and healthy eating. Are you a Fit (Wo)Men Cook?
