Easy Dinner Fix For Family Diets

With all the endless diets nowadays, it’s tricky to fix dinner when your family is split between Low Carb, Keto, Paleo, Atkins, South Beach, Vegetarian, Vegan, the list is endless. On top of diets, throw food allergies like gluten intolerance in the mix and you’re at your wits’ end how to make dinner the whole family can enjoy? Is this a familiar scene with your family? I’d love to hear your “workarounds” in comment below. 

In a recent Wall Street Journal article, The Family Dinner Is Now A Battle Over Carbohydrate Preferences, I was overjoyed to read the mom makes stir fry twice a week and of course triggered me to post this blog. I don’t know if the writer is a Dietitian but his suggestions of dinner with chopped salad with meat or eggs for The Low Carb Diet sounds so boring, no wonder folks can’t stay on their diets! 

I’ll start by saying every diet agrees more veggies and a smaller portion of meat with good fats, right? Well, Asians have eaten that way for decades so wok cooking is ideal! 

When our mom cooked, a typical family dinner consists of Stir Fried Veggies, Stir Fried Meat with Veggies, Soup and rice.  Carbs are sides unless it’s fried rice or a fried noodle dish. 

My simple dinner at home with my sister and her hubby! See noodles at the top of the table?

So, here’s my workaround for families with multi-diets…
Try my cooking process of stir frying veggies and meat separately.

If there’s a vegan or vegetarian, it’s easy to just leave out the meat and cook up some tofu and still share the veggies! You can choose your own carbs and here’s a delicious low carb, Curry Quinoa which everyone will LOVE.

Wok cooking is so adaptable to any diet! 

I encourage you to invite your kids and partners or friends to chop veggies and stir fry with you.  It’s a perfect way to spend family time together, and dinner will be ready in no time!  

I’ve said this many times, my fondest childhood memories are cooking with my mom and sisters and sitting down to dinner at our big round rosewood dining table with a lazy Susan. I am reminded of our times together every time I cook and I LOVE IT.
