Everything but the Kitchen Sink

If you haven't noticed, another great thing about eating all fresh ingredients is that mostly everything that you have in your refrigerator will taste good when combined with something else. You can come up with great combinations by just throwing a few ingredients together. Sometimes I find myself doing this towards the end of the week when I need to make sure everything gets used. I just throw (almost) anything in the fridge in a bowl, and I end up with a great salad!

For some inspiration, here are some things I've done to use what's in the fridge. Obviously, your creations will differ depending on what's in your refrigerator. Or, use some of these tips to make your ingredients last longer!

Chicken & Broccoli Stir-Fry
1 chicken breast
1/8 onion sliced
leftover cauliflower rice w/ red pepper
1/2 tsp sesame oil
broccoli (steamed)
1/4-1/2 cup chicken broth
Cook the chicken breast in coconut oil until cooked through. Add the onion. Then add the remaining ingredients and reduce heat. Cover and let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken broth has evaporated.

Lettuce with any of the following toppings and more!
