What I’m about to share with you is so good I just can’t stand it. Seriously. I made this for dinner earlier this week, and I really want to make it again. So, I probably will.

Brown Rice Stir-Fry with Orange Sauce- so delicious, healthy, filling, and a great meal.

Reinman and I decided to give up sweets, processed foods, white stuff, and pretty much everything I love (think muffins, cookies, McDonald’s, Diet Coke) for awhile. We’re going on a sort of cleanse. As I type this we’re on our fifth day and while it’s really hard not to give in to temptation, it’s been good. I feel great, and have a ton of energy. So, what I’m saying is you won’t see any muffin or cookie recipes on the blog for the next few weeks. Sad, I know. I’m already looking forward to the day I can bake some muffins or donuts. I’m thinking of celebrating the end of this by buying myself a mini donut pan.

So, if anyone has any awesome, healthy, yummy recipes to share, please do!

  1. This looks delicious, Jill! I will try it. It would make a great lunch for me. I’ll miss your muffins, but I’m so happy that you are taking good care of yourself.

    • This is perfect for lunch. I had it for leftovers and it was really good still.

      I can’t wait to make muffins and other sweets! I am already thinking about what I want to make after this is over.

      • We had this for dinner tonight and it was wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

        • So glad you enjoyed it! :)

  2. This looks soooo good! I especially love the nuts on the top – I think this would be great for the way I am eating too! It’s still amazing to me how much better I feel lately – and the weight is falling off. 17 pounds down so far…crazy! I’m never hungry and I eat so much good food! I can’t wait to try this!

    • 17 pounds is awesome! Woo hoo!! We’re about a week in, so I think I’m still adjusting. And we’re in the middle of moving, so it’s been quite the challenge to not go through a drive thru for dinner.

      You’ll love this! I really love the addition of nuts. Mmmm…
