Health is having the energy to exercise and play with your kids, the mental clarity to excel at your job, and the focus to get what you want out of life. Most people don't know what it's like to truly feel well.  It's more than just the absence of disease.  Good nutrition and physical activity are the core to truly feeling well. Whether you're helping employees reach their goals or setting your own, Stephanie can help you find better nutrition as the first step towards a better life.

Non-Fried Rice

This simple and non greasy version of fried rice is perfect for leftover brown or wild rice.  We make it with the go-to garlic, peas and carrots, but any of your favorite veggies would work!  Same thing with the meat, anything (that's a lean cut) goes.  We went with a lean cut of pork since it's comparable to chicken.

Ingredients:

1 Tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves garlic, sliced thin

8 oz lean pork, cubed

1/2 cup carrots, cut into small chunks

1/2 cup frozen or fresh peas

1 1/2 cups brown or wild rice, cooked

1 egg

1 Tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon teriyaki sauce

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Green onion for garnish 

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Chop or use a garlic press to mince garlic.  Let set 5 minutes before heating. Add oil, garlic and pork to a large saute pan over medium-high heat until pork and garlic are browned.  Reduce heat to medium.  Add carrots and peas and cook until pork is done and carrots are cooked.   Add pre-cooked rice.  Make a space in the center of the pan and drop the raw egg into the center.  Stir the egg to scramble it and mix into the rice.   Add soy sauce, teriyaki, and Worcestershire sauce.  Plate and garnish with green onions, salt and pepper.
