Sometimes you just don’t feel like cooking. Heck, maybe it’s most of the time. That’s okay. Even if you’re trying to eat healthy, dinner doesn’t have to be an elaborate, hour-long slog of chopping, stirring, waiting, and cleaning dishes. This Asian Slaw Stir-Fry is one of my favorite quick and easy meals for a busy weeknight or lazy day. It takes hardly any effort to prepare, especially if you use pre-cut vegetables, and is ready in about 20 minutes flat. It offers a wonderful depth of flavor that’s guaranteed to satisfy those cravings for Asian food. I also recommend it for anyone that thinks they don’t like cabbage! Cooking it reduces some of the bitterness and the seasonings and beef work really well here. You can also use pork if you’d prefer. This is an awesome recipe if you want to get a larger variety of vegetables, particularly cancer-fighting crucifers, into your diet. Plus, cabbage is cheap!
Keep your household clean, too!
I may make my living as a food blogger, but my health-consciousness actually began long before I started cooking. Growing up with a sensitive nose and skin that would break out into a rash at the slightest provocation, I’ve been making my own cosmetics and cleaning products since high school. I hoped that avoiding these environmental toxins would not only improve my health, but be better for the environment and save me some money compared to buying high-end non-toxic products at a health-foods store. Whatever your reasons, making your own household products is easier than you might think. My e-book A Clean Space has all the tips, tricks, and recipes you need to get started–and it’s only $6.99!
