A Day of Rotation Eats + Broccoli Slaw Stir-Fry

in Other, Recipes, Sides

On Tuesday I shared the deets on my four-day food rotation diet, why it came to be, and why I sort of hate it.  And since I am sure that many of you are curious what that actually translates into in a 24-hour period, I thought I’d share a day of my rotation eats.  I also snuck in a recipe for my Broccoli Slaw Stir-Fry, so scroll down to the bottom if that is what you are here for!

A Day of Rotation Eats

A Day of Rotation Eats + Broccoli Slaw Stir-Fry Recipe {AIP Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comEvery morning looks the same for me: this mixed with water.  I have been taking this for about a month now to work towards healing my leaky gut.  It tastes absolutely terrible.  Seriously.  It’s so bad that I have to plug my nose and chug it.  Therefore, it had better work in order to make it worth it!

A Day of Rotation Eats + Broccoli Slaw Stir-Fry Recipe {AIP Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI begin each new rotation “day” at dinner time.  Therefore, all of the foods that I eat on “day 1” are generally eaten between about 5:30 p.m. on one day and 5:30 p.m. on the next day.  This strategy tends to work the best for me so that I can prep all of my meals for the “day” at dinner time (when I am home and not at work) instead of waking up an extra 30 minutes or more to prep food each morning.

On this particular day, my breakfast and lunch were essentially leftovers from dinner the night before: organic refried beans, roasted asparagus, cooked green peas, baked yuca fries, and a little dab of peanut butter.

A Day of Rotation Eats + Broccoli Slaw Stir-Fry Recipe {AIP Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comSince dinner was the start of the next day in my rotation, I had a new source of protein and veggies to eat.  I made this baked lemon pepper chicken (bird, citrus, and pepper) and paired it alongside sweet potato fries (morning glory) and my broccoli slaw stir-fry (mustard and parsley).  And since I had used EVOO to cook my yuca fries the day before, I cooked my sweet potato fries and slaw in coconut oil.

Now for that stiry-fry recipe.  Originally I was going to write up a whole post about this new favorite side dish.  But then it was 7:30 on a Sunday night, the battery for my DSLR was dead, and we were about two minutes from a thunderstorm, so… bad lighting/laziness = this:

AIP Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Nightshade-Free, Whole 30

Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients

2 TB of organic virgin coconut oil or red palm oil
1 medium head of green cabbage, chopped
12 oz bag of organic broccoli slaw
1/4 cup of coconut aminos
1 tsp of fish sauce
2 tsp of garlic powder
2 tsp of onion powder
1 tsp of ground ginger
1/2 tsp of fine sea salt

Directions

1. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet.  Once hot, lower the heat to medium and add cabbage and broccoli slaw to the skillet.  Cover.

2. Continue sauteing for approximately 10 to 12 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes.

3. Add coconut aminos, fish sauce, and seasonings.  Stir until well-combined.

4. Turn the heat to medium-low and continue cooking for approximately two to three minutes.

A Day of Rotation Eats + Broccoli Slaw Stir-Fry Recipe {AIP Paleo, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Nut-Free, Nightshade-Free} | cleaneatingveggiegirl.comI ended my day with my current favorite snack: leftover turkey bacon (bird, again) dipped in sunflower seed butter (aster and my “seed day”).  If you love savory foods as much as I do, this is a must-try.  It’s sort of like a chip in dip, but crispy bacon in butter instead.

Jeremy and I are off on an adventure beginning tomorrow.  You can expect a little from me over on Facebook and Instagram, but nothing here until we return!

    All of it looks yummy despite the food rotation! You’re doing an amazing job with the meal planning and doing your best to make your body happy 🙂

    On a side note, is there a particular yucca fry recipe you prefer? Just curious since I love them, too!

      We don’t have a particular recipe that we use. We base our cooking method off of some other recipes and trial/error. Maybe I’ll need to write up a post for them!

        You should! Sharing the love of yucca fries is always a good idea 😉 But there are many recipes out there so no pressure!

          I agree! The more yucca fries, the better 🙂

    Yum! That broccoli slaw looks so good. I love cabbage so much and am always looking for new side dishes to make with it! Yum.

      Me too! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be a cabbage LOVER as an adult, but I truly am. I also love adding it to soups!
