Today I was talking to one of my awesome clients about eating Chinese food. Yuk!
I mean not because it tastes bad but because they cook with so much salt and oil that you wake up the next day looking like a balloon and then you have a bad day.
This doesn’t mean you can’t have Chinese Food, but instead of eating out, eat it in!
Here is how! I actually love Chinese, Thai and Japanese food so I am always trying to come up with healthy ways to make them.
I love that I can pretty much eat whatever I want or crave if I make it at home and I can control the quality of the ingredients and then enjoy it GUILT-FREE.
Controlling the quality of food you eat and the kinds of foods you eat can make a huge impact on your WEIGHT LOSS.
After almost 18 years in the fitness and health industry, I have found that most people don’t have so much of a problem with the quantity of food. On the contrary, most people are eating way too little calories (calorie deprivation) in an attempt to “DIET”.
So then, why aren’t people losing more weight?
The answer is pretty much always the same. They are eating too little, but the wrong foods.
There are some foods that are just DETRIMENTAL to your weight loss, muscle gain and results.
The digestive track is one of the biggest and most important processes of the body. And if digestion is off, it can completely prevent you from LOSING WEIGHT and BURNING FAT.
So how do you prevent yourself from having your digestion be off?
Easy…….. Don’t eat foods that are INFLAMMATORY.
Too much inflammation in the digestive system doesn’t allow you to burn fat and lose weight. That means that even if you are eating only 500 calories a day and exercising 7 days a week but you are consuming some of these “inflammatory” foods, its possible that you don’t lose ONE OUNCE of fat.
Pretty crazy huh?
I know, its insane, but true.
And when I finally understood this, and took out of my diet and my clients diets all those foods that cause inflammation, it was soooooo much easier to lose weight.
So before I give you this awesome recipe, I want to make sure that you take these INFLAMMATORY FOODS out of you diet. There are 5 foods you should take out of your diet that will make a huge difference.
Seriously, when I take these foods out of my clients diets, its like the drop 10 lbs in like a week or two. They totally de-bloat. It’s crazy.
What I’m going to do for you is give you a list of the foods in a nice PDF so that you can print it and keep it in your kitchen as a reminder. I also went ahead and gave you 5 foods that you MUST include in your diet if you wan tot maximize your results. I figured, if I’m giving you what you CAN’T eat, I better give you what you CAN eat. It’s all right here in this PDF for you.
If you take these out of your diet, I promise, you will definitely see a change. I did! I actually saw a huge change in my body, and I was already pretty lean before that.
I finally saw ABS the way I never saw them before. But I also started doing some amazing ABS EXERCISES. So I want to show you what those exercises are. So I made like a 30 seconds video of those exercises for you. You can get all of this, the PDF and the short video here.
Once you go to the link to get access to all of this (which by the way is totally free), you will also receive a few emails from me for a few days. Make sure you open and read them. I have taken a lot of time to give you plenty of tips and tricks and strategies to help you get rid of these foods and make better options. There’s a ton of golden nuggets in those emails that will really help you lose weight and get more toned.
Ok, now I am so excited about this recipe because it has a ton of green veggies in it which is great.
This was also super easy to make because I just used a bunch of left over veggies I had and actually used left over jasmine rice I had prepared the day before. So this dish took me about 10 minutes to make. YEAH!
All you have to do is add chicken, tofu, turkey or steak to this and you have one delicious meal. As you can see in the picture below, I served this up with some delicious Asian Turkey Meatballs and it was a delicious meal. So good, even my 2 year old devoured a whole bowl full of it.

I had roasted some asparagus the day before and I had a ton left over so I used them for this Greens Fried Rice. Did you know that asparagus are really good for you?
Here are a few benefits.
Health Benefits of Asparagus:
- Good source of folate, fiber and Vitamins A, C, E, and K
- Great source of Glutatione which is a detoxifying compound that helps break down carcinogens and free radicals, this is why they say asparagus is so good to help Cancer and other diseases.
- Packed with antioxidants and famous for its ability to neutralize cell damaging free radicals, it helps the aging process…woohooo
This should be reason enough to make this. Aside from that it is so tasty.

Healthy Recipe For Greens Fried Rice
2 cups of jasmine or brown rice (I used left overs)
1 1/2 cups chopped asparagus, grilled, roasted, steamed (I used left overs)
1 cup shelled edamame
1/2 cup scallions
3 egg whites, scrambled
1 tbsp black sesame seeds
2-3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Cook the rice as directed. Unless you have left overs. In a wok or deep skillet with a little stock, mix in all the vegetables and cook for a few minutes. Add in the cooked rice, egg whites, scallions, sesame seeds and vinegar and fold in well.
You are going to love this recipe. I pretty much make it all the time because its a good way to get my kids to eat more veggies and there’s extra protein in the rice because of the egg whites. It’s just a win-win.
I love that my kids love to eat healthy. I really credit that to my BeFit Moms Meal Plans. I have been following them myself with my family since my son was born and it has been amazing. It’s so great to always have a plan of what to eat. To always have my shopping lists ready, I don’t even have to think about it, worry about it, nor take the time to make them every week.
It saves me time, and actually money too because I really just stick to the list.
In turn, my kids and hubby eat super healthy. I cook every day and it only takes about 30 minutes and I have been able to get leaner than ever. All my BeFit Moms say the same thing too.
Its so great to hear that the hubby’s and kiddos like the meals too. It feels so much better to know your family is getting healthier too. Not just you eating your “diet food” and then feeding them the “crap”.
If you want to try them out, I think you will fall in love like I did and like all my BeFit Moms do.
