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.
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.
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!
