WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Vegetable Overload

I've recently made a lifestyle change: I am cutting back on carbs.

This is not a diet, but a plan I am incorporating in life. I find that I eat way too many carbs without the balance of fruits and vegetables.

So I have made a point to skip the rice, breads, pastas and such more often, prefering now to cook or dine on meals that incorporate more fruits and vegetables. I am not giving up carbs all together, just making better and healthier choices about my intake.

As such, I made this freakin' amazing dish. A vegetable meadley, really. It was something like a stirfry and called for onion, garlic, shallots, scallions, cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, lemon, Bragg's and shrimp. I was going to use ponzu, but opted instead for Bragg's last minute. Bragg's Liquid Aminos basically tastes like soy sauce, but with a lower concentration of sodium. It also is slightly more tart in comparison and gives you a huge boost of protein.

  1. I should join you in balancing my diet more toward veg and fruit than carbs and meat. Time to get a dietary 12-step program going.
