That's it! It couldn't be easier. ENJOY! This homemade ranch can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for about 1 week. We use this for salads, veggie dip, etc - just play around with consistency until you find what you love.

Ingredients ::

  • Olive oil

  • 1.5 lbs chicken breasts (cut into bite sized pieces)

  • 1 C pineapple (chopped)

  • 1 C broccoli (chopped)

  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped)

  • 3 green onions (chopped) - (2/3 white & 1/3 green - separated)

  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic

  • 1" fresh ginger grated

  • salt/pepper to taste




Marinade ::

  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos (soy sauce)

  • 2 Tbsp arrowroot powder (cornstarch)




Teriyaki Sauce ::

  • 1/3 C coconut aminos (soy sauce)

  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar

  • 1 Tbsp arrowroot powder (cornstarch)

  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil

  • 3 Tbsp pineapple juice



In a medium bowl, combine coconut aminos & arrowroot powder to create a marinade, then add chopped raw chicken & stir to coat the chicken & set aside.


Chop & prep all the produce and set aside as well. Next, in a small bowl, combine ingredients to make the teriyaki sauce (coconut aminos, rice vinegar, arrowroot powder, sesame oil, & pineapple juice... if you don't have pineapple juice, you can crush up pineapple & use that). Set aside the sauce.


Add oil to a large skillet on med/high heat. Once heated up, add in chopped bell peppers & cook for 1-2 minutes. Next, add in the marinated chicken & garlic. Once the chicken is almost cooked through, add in the broccoli & continue cooking until the chicken is fully cooked.


Next, add in the white part of the green onion, freshly grated ginger & pineapple chunks. Stir well, then pour in the teriyaki sauce, and stir to combine. Cook 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens and becomes sticky.


Top with green parts of the green onion & serve over rice! Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container to eat throughout the week! YUM!

P F C H A N G C H I C K E N


Ingredients ::

  • Olive oil

  • 1 lb ground chicken

  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic

  • 1 small onion (chopped)

  • 1/4 C hoisin sauce

  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos (soy sauce)

  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar

  • 1" fresh grated ginger

  • 1 tsp sriracha

  • 2-3 green onions (chopped)

  • 8oz can water chestnuts (chopped)

  • salt & pepper to taste

**Serve on romaine lettuce leaves, on top of a salad, or over rice!


Add oil, chopped onion & ground chicken into a large pan & cook on med/high heat until cooked.

Next, add in garlic, hoisin sauce, coconut aminos (soy sauce), rice vinegar, ginger, & sriracha. Stir together & cook for 2 minutes. Then, add in water chestnuts & green onions. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Add salt & pepper to taste.


Serve on top of lettuce leaves as a wrap, on top of a salad, over rice or just about anyway! Enjoy right away, or store in the fridge & reheat throughout the week! Yum!




H O M E M A D E G R A N O L A B I T E S



Ingredients ::

  • 2 C peanut or almond butter

  • 1 C honey

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 5 C rolled oats

  • 1 C mini chocolate chips

  • 1/4-1/3 C add-ins (pumpkin seeds, nuts, coconut flakes, etc)

  • 1 Tbsp nutrient boost (optional) - chia seeds, flax seeds, etc)



In a large mixing bowl, add in nut butter, honey, vanilla, & salt... then stir well. Then add in remaining ingredients, and mix well until combined. (This may seem too dry at first, but it will all come together, just keep stirring).


Once everything is combined, decide if you want to make granola BARs or granola BITES! I typically opt for bites because they tend to last longer and with a mini muffin pan or small scooper, they seem easier.


*BARS* - Pour mixture into a parchment lined baking dish and press firmly into the pan. Place in the fridge for about 1 hour until firm, then remove from baking dish, cut into desired size bars.


*BITES* - Using a mini scooper (mine is 2 Tbsp size), scoop out granola & roll into a firm ball -or- place in a silicone or greased mini muffin tin (pressing firmly). Place in the fridge for about 1 hour until firm, then remove bites from muffin tin.


Store Bites/Bars in an airtight container in the fridge, and enjoy throughout the week! YUM! These are great for after school snacks, school lunches, or a perfect grab & go treat throughout the day!
