As I’ve said before, one of my favorite things about blogging this past year has been the super fabulous friends I’ve made {remember my blate with Claire??} Ohh if only I could go on hot blates with all the lovely bloggies I meet and I have one new friend that I’m especially excited to introduce to y’all!

Lauryn from The Skinny Confidential is not only freakin’ gorgeous {duh}, but she’s such a huge role model and inspiration for those trying to live a healthier lifestyle by making working out and eating right seem like tons of fun!  We both have so much in common and we came up with the brilliant idea of choosing a recipe from each others blog to re-create and share with our readers.  We clearly both have skinny on the mind 🙂


The recipe I chose to make was her Chinese Chicken Stir Fry that looked seriously delicious.  What intrigued me most about this recipe was the combination of light soy sauce and lemon juice.  I’ve never mixed the two together, but I honestly will from now on because the flavors are insane!  Each serving of chicken and veggies is only around 170 calories with only 4 grams of fat!  We chose to wrap the stir fry up in tortillas and make healthy fajitas which was a great decision.  Me and the boyfriend enjoyed a perfect lunch with just the right amount of leftovers to bring to work the next day.

This dish is packed full of protein, low in fat and has tons of fresh veggies.  Pair this with a side salad or throw on a bed of rice and you’ve got one healthy balanced meal!  This is definitely going to become my go-to-meal when I want to make something quick and easy that’s really good for you.  I highly suggest you try this!


So what recipe did Lauryn choose to make from my blog??  Well she chose to make my yummy Iced Pumpkin Cookies of course, perfect choice if you ask me.  I’m not bias or anything 😉  Here, go see for yourself!  For more delicious recipes or fun workout tips, make sure to head on over to Lauryn’s fabulous blog right away.  Trust me, you’ll be hooked!

    Wow, never thought of a wrap! Will next time, I usually make enough for two.

  2. Sadia says:

    I lost a ridiculous amount of weight living on stir frys and smoothies during the month of ramadan and that with a sneaky treat here and there

  3. Gina (Love, Auntie) says:

    This is one of my favorite meals to make. I get intimidated by stir fry dishes, but this one is easy to follow, and I love the flavor. I like to add peanuts to it as well!

  4. Carey says:

    Another great recipe. Thank you so much! The teens loved it once again. We did the fajita wraps along with some rice as an alternative option. Yummy and so filling.

  5. Traci says:

    I am wondering if coconut oil could be used in place of olive oil. Maybe add a little nutty flavor to it. 🙂

    1. Kelly says:

      I’m sure that would taste delicious! 🙂

  6. Dennis Regling says:

    Great recipe. I stir fry about once a week. Try adding about a tsp of corn starch to this to thicken the soy&lemon. Also, a can of mandarin oranges and corn starch added to a stirfry makes for a tasty sauce.

  7. Pauline says:

    This is the first recipe I have seen on your site and I am so impressed. I will be coming back for more recipes for slimmers as I need to lose weight and stir fries are such a tasty way to lose it.
