Orange chicken is a favorite in our house. Crispy, fried chicken with a sweet orange glaze is pretty hard to pass up! It’s great served over cauliflower fried rice or if you can tolerate grains, you can serve it over properly prepared brown rice.
My kids love the addition of broccoli in stir-fry, but can also add bell peppers, snap peas or green beans to this dish for added nutrients. I prefer to use Fermented Tamari Sauce as a gluten-free substitute for processed soy sauce. When properly fermented and raw, tamari contains probiotics that are beneficial for the gut. A few companies, such as Ohsawa, make tamari the old-fashioned way, brewed in wooden kegs and allowed to age and ferment.
And on a side note, I want to remind you of the Thyroid Sessions coming up this weekend. An estimated 30 million people in the US and 200 million worldwide have a thyroid disorder — only half have been properly diagnosed. And even less are receiving proper treatment. Unfortunately, the real answers are not often offered by medical practitioners and seldom covered by insurance. So in an effort to educate and encourage, Sean Croxton, from Underground Wellness has brought together a group of naturopaths, Functional Medicine doctors, nutritionists (my nutritionist, Kim Schuette is a presenter) and others to share with you how to naturally reverse thyroid disease. Please share this information with anyone you know that suffers from thyroid disease. The information presented could change their life!
