Stir Fry Minus Soy

Today was a wonderful day off! I actually decided to get up at pretty much my regular time and get some things done around the house. I ironed, did laundry, washed the bathroom floors, and gave the whole house a vacuum. I also baked up a loaf of cinnamon sweet bread! Unfortunately, given the clean month, this loaf is not for me! Josh’s parents are coming to visit tomorrow night for dinner (they’re vacationing in Hilton Head), so I made the loaf for them.


After the housework was done, I ran out and picked up a coffee and went to the outlets to my favorite store, Banana Republic! The outlet was having an AMAZING sale. I got 5 nice tops/sweaters for $80! When I got home, I ate lunch, napped, started to learn the new Body Step, did my BBBC ab workout from here (3 sets of toe touches, scissors, 45 degree crunches), and then relaxed some more before heading out to teach Body Step.

Eats, Breakfast- hard boiled egg whites, coffee (no pic).

Lunch- Salad of sorts (1/4 cup wheat berries, leftover green beans, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, tomato, little olive oil, and balsamic vinegar), whole wheat bread
…And apple with cinnamon


Snack-1/2 scoop Jay Robb egg white protein, 1 cup milk, 1 banana
Dinner-Stir Fry (ground turkey, mixed veggies, black beans). I stressed a little because I couldn’t use my regular stir fry sauce because it contains soy and too much salt. I added a little hot sauce and no salt added tomato sauce instead


Now its time to cut Josh's hair and take a shower! Maybe later I will have a little more fruit as well ;)

Glad you enjoyed your day off. You were very productive! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I put the video clip on. It was fun to do! I didn't work either, after the show we watched Slumdog and relaxed. A good day!

great day off to spend on house working and baking!
stir-fry without soy sauce? how would that taste? Clean eating doesn't include soy sauce? that will be hard for me!

Sharon said...

There's a place in Michigan where my family and I go every year that makes the most amazing cinnamon sweet bread... can't wait to have it this summer! What a nice daughter in law you are.

Esi said...

Is it hard to bake bread knowing you can't have it? I'm not sure I would have the willpower! So jealous of your day off.

wholefoodswholeme said...

love great bargains! how lucky. very impressed with your soy-free stir fry - don't know if i'd ever have the guts, being oriental and all ;)

MizFit said...

Dawn said...

Frank napping! How adorable!
I have slowly started the clean living diet--so far so good, but I have to say I cannot, just cannot give up my splash of half & half in my morning coffee.
Where did you get your guidelines for the diet from? I use the garden of life whey protein shake in the morning. It has a lot of the good stuff in it, no soy either.

Berni at Yo-yonomore said...

Oooh. Apple with cinnamon, how could I have forgotten about that. Bread looks scrumptious.... I can smell it from here ;)

Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point said...

You're doing so well with the clean eating! The stir fry looks great. It may have just inspired my dinner.

Aggie said...

Oh your stirfry looks good...would sriracha sauce be considered clean I wonder? It's an Asian spicy chili sauce...
