Green Giant Stir Fry

Happy Friday!!! First, excitement in our house- Kaylin slept through night for the first time! It was absolutely wonderful to wakeup after solid sleep!

The rest of my week has been great. I finally got all of the cleaning done, took Body Combat Wednesday, and got in a nice run on Thursday. I also met up with Mandi for Starbucks. Oh, and worked. Today will include teaching Body Pump, running errands, and a date night ALONE with Josh! Whoop, whoop. Whats going on with you?

Recently, I received a coupon to try out a sample of Green Giant vegetables (disclaimer: a stipend was provided for free as a part of the Foodbuzz taste testers program). I choose one of my favorites, sugar snap peas:


I used them in an easy stir fry. First, I browned up a pound of ground turkey. Meanwhile, I cooked the sugar snap peas and a side of corn according to the package directions. I added the vegetables to the ground turkey


and then added my favorite pre-made stir fry sauce (I like to make my own sauce, but this stuff is great in a pinch):


I topped the stir fry with sesame seeds and served it with a side of pineapple. Its also delicious on top of greens:


Thanks Green Giant and Foodbuzz! The snap peas were awesome in this stir fry.

Last, I just wanted to let you all know that I am taking part in the Green Works Community. As a part of the community, I received a number of Green Works products to try (disclaimer: I received these products for free). I used the all purpose cleaner first and loved it. It did a great job cleaning the counter tops in my kitchen and smelled fresh, but not overpowering. I like that, unlike other cleaners, you don’t need to rinse your kitchen counters with water before they come in contact with food.


Do you use green products? I have used a few green cleaning products and love using easy/peasy homemade cleaners as well (i.e. white vinegar).
