Seafood Stir Fry:
It’s been a busy week but I’m feeling good! I’m reaping the benefits of being consistent with my workout program and eating healthy. I partied hard for my birthday at my favorite restaurant Mr. Chows but then I got right back on the grind with healthy food immediately. If you haven’t been to Mr. Chows, treat yourself to a fun night of dinner and drinks with the best chicken satay, squab with lettuce cups, lobster, seaweed, white fish, filet mignon and cosmopolitans in town. Chris the Maitre d’ is the best in town and the service is over the top…but don’t look at the bill and watch out for the crazy paparazzi that’s there looking for stars. It’s a fun night of great food and lots of laughter!

After a fun night of gourmet chinese food at Mr. Chows, I decided to make the kids my low fat version of Seafood Stir Fry! What I love about this simple recipe is that it’s cooked in one wok! Quick and low fat right on time!
Have a beautiful weekend!
