Health doesn't have to be boring and it certainly doesn't have to be tasteless! This Chinese Takeout Favorite is normally loaded with lots of toxic oils and sugar. Take a look at how I changed up this Friday Night Favorite!

You can have your Mongolian Beef and your abs too!

Health doesn’t have to be boring and it certainly doesn’t have to be tasteless!

I LOVE and I mean I LURRRVVVVV the challenge of taking a traditionally nutrient deficient recipe like Mongolian Beef and Broccoli and and making it something that will make my brain and body feel GOOOODDDDDD!!!

This Chinese Takeout Favorite is normally loaded with lots of toxic oils and sugar. So I simply used a pure Avocado Oil, Swerve (a sugar alternative), skipped unnecessary starchy carbs and added extra protein by using collagen as a coating for my broccoli and a thickener for my Sauce!

Take a look at how these changes amped up the nutritional profile of this Friday Night Favorite!

I’ve missed you boo. Last night I got back in the kitchen after a little hiatus. I forgot how much I LOVE PLAYING in there! How much I LOVE thinking creatively, resourcefully, healthfully! I forgot how much I LURRRRVVVVV and i mean i LURRRVVVVV the challenge of taking a traditional recipe and making it more #leanandgreen . I forgot how GOOOODDDDDD my body and brain feel when I feed it this way!!! And it took like 15 minutes total!!! WHAT THE ACTUAL?! . . I added extra protein and skipped unnecessary carbs by using @cbsupplements Collagen as a coating for my broccoli and a thickener for my Sauce! . With a few modifications here are the sats on my version (which was stupid yummy) and PF Chang’s. 🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦 🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮 365 Calories 20g Healthy Fat 53g Protein 6g Net Carbs (mostly from Broccoli) 6g Fiber According to CalorieKing here are the numbers for PF Chang’s Mongolian Beef BEFORE adding the rice!!!! .... 770 Calories 42g Healthy Fat 59g Protein 32g Sugar 38g Net Carbs 1g Fiber 🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦🥦 🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮🐮 #BROCCOLI: is a great source of vitamins K and C, a good source of folate (folic acid) and also provides potassium, fiber. Vitamin C – builds collagen, which forms body tissue and bone, and helps cuts and wounds heal. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and protects the body from damaging free radicals. #FLANKSTEAK: is made from the cow's abdominal muscles. It's one of the healthiest beef cuts—ounce for ounce, a flank steak has fewer calories and more protein than a ribeye or porterhouse. It's one of the great cuts—very lean and with a lot of flavor if you don't overcook it and know how to slice it (across the grain) #COCONUTAMINOS: Aside from being soy free and gluten free, coconut aminos is low GI and packed with minerals, vitamin C, and B vitamins....they are in amino acids, containing 17 different types. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are essential to our health and nutrition.
