Another favorite meal loaded with good-for-you veggies vital to a good ketogenic diet is this super easy, delicious and healthy stir fry. In addition to being keto, it’s also low carb, low calorie, and Whole30! Its Asiany flavor is out of this world and it uses whatever meat and vegetables you have on hand. I had 2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts, onion, carrots, celery, and cabbage. I didn’t have any fresh broccoli, but a bag of frozen worked perfect plus no chopping! 😁
Let’s Get Right To It
Keto veggies suitable for a stir-fry include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, mushrooms, carrots, celery, and bean sprouts. The protein can be beef, pork, chicken, smoked sausage, or ground beef. Cut the meat super thin (best done when partially frozen). Or cut the smoked sausage into medallions. However, some smoked sausages are not as healthy as others, therefore, read the nutrition label to find the macros for your particular diet. To learn more about some of the most popular diets of the day, here is a brief description of Paleo, Whole30, Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, and the Ketogenic approach to weight loss.
Pre-Prep Makes Quick Work
Having everything sliced and diced beforehand makes for quick work. You can buy everything pre-cut (even meat for stir-fry). Some people do all their veggie prepwork on Saturday or Sunday. Most importantly, do whatever it takes to make cooking for your health less daunting. 😊
Here’s another great point, this delicious and healthy stir fry recipe is great for leftovers! Divide portions into individual containers for quick reheating in the microwave. 😋
