Continuing with my healthy eating theme, I have been back on the stir fries over the weekend. So quick, so easy, so delicious. I have loved this article on buzzfeed for some inspiration, a great selection of blogs that I probably would never have found otherwise, and a lot of them are easily FODMAPable.
Let’s be honest, stir fries are great. A great way to eat a load of fresh veg, and they take about 20 mins from getting in the door to sitting down to eat.
I made the Asian Salmon and Green Bean Stir fry over the weekend, and also another prawny stir fry – they are the best thing for healthy, new year eating, especially if you’re also going to the gym and want something quick and easy when you get home.
The key is not to buy the ready made stir fry veg – on the FODMAP diet there are things in there that aren’t going to be any good for you, and my opinion, there’s waaay too many beansprouts and not enough of the good stuff – peppers, baby corn, courgette etc.
All stir fries are fundamentally the same – meat or tofu and loads of FODMAP friendly veg (peppers, courgettes, green beans, corn, etc), It’s the sauce that adds a bit of interest. So here for you are some suggested, easy stir fry sauces that you can use with your favourite veg, meat or fish.
