Back to School Challenge. Starting with Chicken Coconut Stirfry

Well, Here it is. The school year begins. The summer is officially over for all of us with kids.
Nathan started grade 1 today and Nolan will begin Pre-K on Monday.
With this time comes a harsh realization for most of us. The extra beer weight that we packed on after an amazing summer in the sun.
Deathrace was fun! But My family and I have kind of been lacking in the "healthy department" since then. I have decided to initiate a Back to School Challenge that will involve clean eating and exercise. Following is the recipe that I decided to start the challenge with.

Coconut Chicken Stirfry

1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground turmeric
salt and pepper to taste
4-6 chicken breasts, cubed
2 tsp sesame oil
1/2 purple onion
sliced carrots
snap peas
2 cloves garlic
1 can organic light coconut milk

1. Cook chicken in oil, add spices to coat chicken.

2. Add veggies and coconut milk. Let steam and simmer on low heat until veggies are at desired crispness.

3. Serve with rice or side of choice.

I would recommend playing with this recipe. Add some spice where you want or add some soy sauce or equivelant.

Hope you all enjoy the challenge and keep us updated as to your progress. Please share any recipes with us, either on my blog or on the Facebook site.
