Stir-Fried Broccoli Slaw

First off, I need to apologize for my photography skills. They aren’t exactly up to par and I’m using my iphone to take pics but I’m trying. 😉 Second, Connor is officially my food model.. although getting him to wear clothes is something I need to work on. Without further ado,

 

 

I like to think that I’m so organized with Pinterest and all, but in reality, I look in the fridge and just throw something together. My home-made mayo epic-ally failed. FYI: NEVER add gelatin to runny mayo. What the heck was I thinking?

 

Recipe:

Look in fridge, grab randomly, toss in pan, add fat. Good to go. Hehehe ok here it is

  • Chop some sweet potato and shallot (or garlic and onion), warm in pan with extra virgin coconut oil and some sea salt
  • Add in broccoli slaw (broccoli, carrots, purple cabbage). I cheated and bought it shredded. Oh so easy peasy.
  • Shred some roasted chicken. I also cheated on this and bought an already ready chicken and just shredded from leftovers last night. 
  • Add a generous dab of Kerrygold butter when nearing your desired done-ness. I didn’t want it mushy but cooked enough that Connor could eat it. The broccoli slaw tends to be a real jaw work out raw. 

-Omit the chicken/butter and you have a healthy tasty vegan meal. It made tons. This lil dish is our lunch, Oliver’s dinner at work served with a generous salad and probably our breakfast tomorrow served in scrambled eggs. Yum.

KeVita has an impressive list of flavors, the only sad part is most of the stores I go to, only have 1-2 flavors. 

  • Coconut
  • Lemon Ginger
  • Strawberry Acai Coconut
  • Mango Coconut
  • Pomegranate Coconut
  • Pomegranate
  • Pomegranate Black Tea
  • Living Greens
  • NEW: Mojita: Lime Mint Coconut
  • NEW: Daily Cleanse: Lemon Cayenne

Let’s start with the Lemon Ginger:

Hands down, my favorite combination. It’s light and fizzy and perfect for re-hydrating.  It’s not just the great taste that draws me to this product, the ingredient list is quite impressive. I think KeVita is perfect for someone who hasn’t really gotten into drinking Kombucha or finds that Kombucha is too overwhelming. 

The ingredient list boasts: Reverse Osmosis Water, Organic KeVita Probiotic Culture, Organic Cane syrup, organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic cold pressed lemon juice and ginger whole plant extracts, organic fig concentrate, purple carrot juice color.

Pretty impressive to me! Its a super pick me up. 

I also tried the Mango Coconut:

This flavor definitely has more punch, fruity and tropical. My BF Oliver said this was his favorite but I guess I’m more of the traditional flavor girl, can’t beat lemon and ginger! I could see serving this flavor as a punch at a party! OOOO! Just had a thought… a KeVita party. LOL. Yeah I’m a dork like that. 

Here is the awesome ingredient list: Reverse osmosis water, organic KeVita probiotic culture, organic coconut water, organic mango puree, organic apple cider vinegar, organic natural mango flavor, organic natural coconut flavor, organic stevia, organic fruit and vegetable color

Now for the giveaway! Enter below for your chance to score a coupon for a free drink (although tiny print says you are responsible for sales tax which is roughly 25-32cents) PRETTY FREAKING good in my book!

 

OK! Leave me a comment with the flavor you would like to try. Also like me on FB or follow me on Twitter and let me know in separate comments that you are/did. I will randomly pick a winner on 9/17/13 and announce the winner. Good luck. 

 

Have a super awesome day.
