Does cold weather drive you to sugar? It always makes me crave tea, & of course, a dessert to go with it. Everyone in the apartment has been slacking a bit with brownies & cupcakes constantly coming out of the oven, so we decided to do the Under Armour ‘Rule Your Nutrition Challenge‘ this month! Shifting focus to be extra aware of what we eat.

This healthy stirfry bowl is the perfect lunch for the challenge- it has protein to rebuild muscles after a workout, veggies for all the vitamins, and low in carbs. (Though always check with your doctor before making any dietary changes!) This bowl delivers flavor & goodness all in one.

And if you’re looking for a breakfast option, try the citrus bowl.

Healthy Stir-fry Bowl
2 T olive oil
1 chicken breast, diced
1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup asparagus
1/4 can of corn
1/4 cup broccoli
pepper, turmeric, & lemon juice to taste
handful of spinach (or any green, leafy base)
spoonful of Greek yogurt

Warm the olive oil in a large sautè pan over medium heat. As the oil is warming, dice the vegetables and chicken breast. (This is a great recipe for meal prep too! You can dice everything at the beginning or the week and throw into a pan later.) Transfer all the ingredients into the pan. Add your pepper, turmeric, & lemon juice on top and cook for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from burning.

By the time your mouth starts watering, the stirfry should be good to go! Pile over your washed greens and finish with a spoonful of Greek yogurt. Your ridiculously easy lunch packs all the nutrients for a midday pick-me up.
