Simple Steak Stir-Fry

Beef stir-fry recipe

Low-carb days are really difficult. However, when I’m carb-cycling and I know that in a few days I will get to enjoy all the carbs I want, then they are a difficulty I’ll happily endure.

Part of the hardship of low-carb eating is that I am not a fan of piling up on vegetables. As healthy as I’d like to be,I often find that I stick to a small amount of vegetables and keep them on rotation for most of my meals. No matter how much I love cauliflower, I can only have it so many times a day. So I’ve been experimenting a lot with different kinds of vegetables and I’ve found that I really enjoy stir-fry. From the different variations that I’ve tried out, I’ve really enjoyed this particular combination, even though it includes asparagus. The meal is actually quite filling which can oftentimes be a negative aspect of going low-carb.

So if you want to reduce your carb-intake while still enjoying your meals and not spending hours in the kitchen making cauliflower pizza (no matter how good it tastes), then you should definitely give this recipe a try. Play around with the vegetable combinations until you find one that you enjoy.

Love,
