  1. This just might be tomorrow’s dinner! (it would be tonight’s but, you know, BLE!) And what is funny about this is that this morning I was praising the texture of cashews in my breakfast cookies. The cashews feel so rich and I always tried to eat as few as possible so pouring out 2 oz feels kinda crazy.

    • For some people, nuts can be a trigger or a binge food, so be careful. I love cashews, and let myself have a meal with only nuts as my protein once every week or so, because it is a heavier food choice. Enjoy your lovely bright line meal! 🙂

      If you use the pineapple do you just throw it in with the veggies to stir-fry?

      • I’d add pineapple at the end, just to warm it up. It doesn’t need any cooking. Great idea!

    Katie – We just finished having this meal for dinner. We loved it! My husband said to put it on his list of favorites! An added bonus was how quick and easy it was to whip up such a tasty dish. Thanks so much for putting together these recipes.

    • So glad Vicki! Isn’t it easy and yummy?? You are most welcome, thank you for the feedback! 🙂

    Excellent! Loved the flavor. I used toasted sesame oil b/c my store did not have dark sesame, turned out great. It’s a keeper! Thank you Katie.
