Paleo-friendly recipe for a chicken and vegetable stir-fry

A huge part of being healthy is taking into consideration what your putting into your body... obviously our store focuses primarily on the supplements side that can be used as tools to improve your results, however if you combine this with improved dietary choices you will get much better results.

Although we have no strong opinion for sticking to specific diets suggested by specific groups (Keto, Carnivor, Vegetarian, Paleo, etc), we do think its best to stick to foods that are organic, and local where possible, unprocessed and whole. Think of foods that come from the land, sea, rivers, or lakes, or grown in your own, or some body else garden. Keeping this in mind can make it much easier to decide what to buy in the grocery store, or farmers markets. Plus limiting the amount of processed foods in your home will directly benefit your appearance, longevity, immune health, and energy in the longer term.

Here's a recipe for a chicken and vegetable stir-fry that is easy to make and delicious.


  • 2 Chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces (could also use thighs)
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 cup broccoli florets

  4. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the skillet and stir-fry for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant.
