Welcome to part 1 of my cooking series with nutritionist, Jennie Miremadi!! First of all, I have to say that Jennie and I had a blast in the kitchen! I am not a terrible cook, but I’m not so great either LOL! Jennie showed me some great ways to make quick and healthy meals for my family. As many of you parents know, finding time to cook and actually sit down to have a meal with your family can sometimes be a challenge! I was looking for a way to make speedy meals without sacrificing healthy ingredients. Jennie is a dream come true! ❤️ We started with this fried rice stirfry recipe and it is absolutely delicious and full of flavor. I’ve always made my own version of a fried rice stirfry, but this one is much healthier and tastes better!! Below you will find the recipe to the dish we prepared!

This is how it is in our kitchen! Lennox wants to be a part of the action, so I put him in his highchair, give him his fave sippy cup and I do my thing! CHOP! CHOP! CHOP!🔪🔪🔪 I love sharing with him what I’m doing and cooking. I explain the ingredients and what is what. He loves watching and participating! 😋

🌽🍊🍉🍒🍏🍌🍓🍐 I wanted to ask Jennie a couple of questions to get a better feel of who she is and her philosophy on food and a healthy lifestyle!
Why do you choose organic?
I try to eat organic whenever possible to avoid consuming harmful pesticides that could endanger my health.
Any quick tips for our readers?
