I am in the process of working on healing my gut from so many years of mistreatment. Since I was little, I have always had a problem with digestion. So enough is enough. I want to know that I can sit down at a meal and enjoy every part of it but, until I can actually do that, I need to heal my digestive system. As part of healing, I have a strict diet that I am following. This is one dish I found works well for me. It has added protein that gives it a creamy texture. I am unable to add tofu or legumes so I decided to try a Pea Protein Isolate from the company Powerootz. It is exciting that it turned out so great and I am able to supplement protein in my actual food too. For a review on other Powerootz protein powders click here. 20160626_145731   Please feel free to add whatever veggies you like to the stir-fry to make it your own. These are vegetables that my stomach can digest right now without causing any issues. You can also choose to add whatever seasonings you like. I chose these seasonings below because they are good for my digestion. The recipe turned out really creamy and tasty. I did have to add more water since the protein powder was added. I also chose to add the salt at the very end. I try to cook with as little salt as possible, so if you are one that prefers to have a more salty dish, please add to your liking. Enjoy. 20160626_142852

Protein Fried Rice

The recipe turned out really creamy and tasty. I did have to add more water since the protein powder was added. I also chose to add the salt at the very end. I try to cook with as little salt as possible, so if you are one that prefers to have a more salty dish, please add to your liking. This is a great dish to serve on the side or just to dish out and eat by itself. You can also top it with some vegan sour cream to add to the creaminess. I also choose to buy local organic veggies and spices, so all of my ingredients will be NON-GMO and Organic even if they are not listed as such.
