One of the reasons I started this is that I wanted to remind myself that eating well can be fun and not as difficult as my mind tries to trick me into believing. I told myself over and over the only way I could eat well is if I made two different meals for dinner. I don’t have picky kids or a picky husband so that is nonsense. The last 8 days I have been easily modifying recipes so everyone is happy. Tonight was a great example of modifying recipes to meet needs. I usually don’t have to do this much work but it was easy and saved me time when it came to serving. So for today’s post I’m focusing only on dinner.
Tonight I made this Chicken Curry Stir-Fry recipe I found while meal planning for my Whole30. We don’t always have great success with curry recipes but this one was a home run. Most of the time I forego recipes with this much spice because the girls can’t eat it (almost 1 and almost 3) but tonight I had a brilliant idea, at least I thought so. While I was cutting everything I put out two bowls, one for them and one for us. I tossed small pieces in the girls bowl while cutting and then didn’t have to worry about cutting when it was time to serve. There was a kid sized batch with only oil, salt and a little tamari as well as an adult batch with all the good spices!

My husband has a crazy metabolism so he usually needs more food and more starches than I do. I made a pot of rice which is something I do anyway when I’m not doing Whole30 so no extra step there. Everybody else is a huge fan of rice so that was the main difference an easy one at that!
Everyone loved it even the girls! Whole30 or not it is a great recipe!
