I love the ease of this clean eating chicken stir-fry recipe. This chicken vegetable dish is a highly flexible one-pot meal that can use up all veggies in your pantry before they go bad.
I used this recipe for the first time many years ago when doing the cabbage soup diet. I needed a chicken recipe for day 5 or 6 that was easy to make, lean and suitable for the detox week. And although this is very long ago and I don't need this rigid diet any more I'm still sticking to this healthy recipe. If you can afford it – make sure to use organic chicken for this clean eating chicken stir-fry!

Why I've stopped posting “meat” recipes (update from May 2018)
If you are a regular reader of my blog you might have realized that you won't find many meat or animal based recipes. Maybe you think I turned vegan like my daughter did some years ago. But this is not true. I will still eat meat, fish or dairy on very rare occasions, but I neither need it nor do I miss it. And above all I never enjoyed cooking with meat.
So you might ask were do I get my protein from? Over the years my main protein sources were a combination between fish, dairy and legumes.
But the more I dig into unbiased scientific research, (I took part at the food revolution summit 2018 recently) the more I come to the conclusion that the healthiest nutrition form is a mainly clean and plant based. So may main protein source comes from the fiber rich legumes, nuts and seeds, although I will never see my nutrition as dogmatic as e.g some vegans do. By the way, did you know that there is no fiber at all in animal based foods? Click here to check my popular list of high fiber foods.
While science can't say for sure if a 100 % plant based nutrition is health-wise superior to a 95 % plant based nutrition, there is a huge consensus among experts (doctors, scientists and nutritionists) regarding the direction of a healthy nutrition and this should go mainly towards a clean, plant based diet if we want:
- to do our best to prevent cancer
- protect our heart
- a “normal” blood pressure
- keep our brain as healthy as possible
- to easily manage weight
- prevent diabetes
- promote longevity
- experience a happy mood
On top of that – and this is evident – a nutrition leaning mainly towards plant based foods respects not only the animal rights but also protects our precious ecosystem and in the end our planet.
