My new session of “what’s in the kitchen?” 😃
I’m always keen to experiment on what I can make from whatever ingredients I can find from the kitchen in addition, to make sure that it’s delicious and healthier…

Hence, I come up with prawn, mixed vegetables, and quinoa (another source of an alternative to rice). That is, the recipe so easy and quick to make but definitely nutritional recipe, here’s why:


▪️ Quinoa – it’s gluten-free, high in protein, high in fiber and far fewer calories, and carbohydrates than white rice. You might find it difficult at first to only having quinoa, meat/seafood, and vegetables. Your body and palate might still be looking for what you’re used to “white rice”. It’s a matter of habit, probably you can try to have quinoa as your rice every alternate day and see from there, perhaps your body might get used to it 😍

▪️ Prawns – I love adding prawns to my cooking, apart from it’s high in protein, it’s also low in carbohydrates and contain little fat. Eating prawns helping to develop a healthy immune system also building strong bones.

▪️ Mixed Vegetables – great to add vegetables to our meal because it’s an important part of healthy eating and helping to improve our digestive system. Definitely plenty of vitamins, minerals, and fiber as well.

TIP: Always remember that moderation and portion of the intake; one of many key factors to healthy living…Not too little, not too much – just the right portion.


Let’s get started! 😁👩‍🍳💟

In terms of the portion of mixed vegetables or prawns, you don’t have to follow exactly from the above ingredients. If you have lesser veggies, you can reduce the teriyaki sauce and the seasoning/herbs. I personally don’t like too savory dish so, I put lesser salt or any sauces that contain high in sodium 😉👩‍🍳

To sum it up, this Stir-Fry Prawns with Mixed Vegetables and Quinoa something that I would recommend for you to try and see if you can slowly switch rice and so you’ll feel lighter but still feel energized at the same time. I am suggesting, of course, whatever you think better for you – always follow that 😉
