Cashew Beef Stir Fry

So far so good, I think I like this Whole 30 more than the 21DSD because I can enjoy fruits that are currently in season such as blueberries, cantaloupe and watermelon. I’ve also decided to shy away from nut butters and dried fruit, both of which I heavily relied on before thus contributing to unwanted weight gain. Nut butters and Paleo banana bread became my breakfast staple and now that I am doing the Whole 30, I am embracing going back to basics and eating simple whole foods. My body is thanking me already!

Here is a Cashew Beef Stir Fry recipe that pairs well with cauliflower rice. It can easily be doubled to make enough leftovers for lunch the next day or re purposed into a new meal by adding some vegetables and making an egg frittata out of it.

  1. I love that eating real food as close to its natural state makes me feel so good, it’s great to make a Paleo treat every now and then but I was getting a little carried away with Paleo cookies last month, so absolutely back on track this month, surprised at how easy it was to just not think about Paleo treats.

    • Yes I agree! I’ve realized that Paleo treats have done me more harm than good so I would be limiting that to 1-2x a week after my Whole 30.

  2. I made this dish today and it is absolutely delicious! Next time I will add more cashews though as they really complete the dish. I added small amount of chilli and that complemented the ginger very well.

    5 stars!
