But cooking meat at the high temperatures you use to grill—as well as broil and fry—creates heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), compounds linked with some cancers.</p> <p>Animal and laboratory studies suggest that HCAs may damage DNA and spur the development of tumors in cells of the colon, breast, prostate and lymph system. At temperatures of 350°F and hotter, amino acids and creatine (a natural compound that helps supply energy to muscles and nerves) react to form HCAs. PAHs form when fat drips onto hot coals, creating smoke that settles on food; these compounds have been associated with increased risk of breast cancer.</p> <p>But &quot;within the big picture of cancer prevention, there are much greater risks than grilling,&quot; says Colleen Doyle, M.S., R.D., director of Nutrition and Physical Activity for the American Cancer Society. For example, &quot;if you’re 30 pounds overweight, that puts you at much greater risk for developing a number of cancers [than does eating grilled meats].&quot;</p> <p>When you do grill, there are several things you can do to reduce HCAs and PAHs.</p> <ul class="greenarrow-left"> <li> <strong>Grill fish.</strong> &quot;Beef, pork and poultry tend to form more HCAs than seafood because of their higher amino acid content and longer grilling times,&quot; says Doyle.</li> <li><strong>Prefer meat or poultry?</strong> Trim fat to reduce drips.</li> <li><strong>Flavor meats with marinades and rubs.</strong> Research in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry showed that marinating red meat in beer or wine for two hours significantly reduced HCAs. Scientists believe the antioxidants in these marinades block HCAs from forming. Similarly, a Kansas State University study found that rubbing rosemary, an herb known for its high level of antioxidants, onto meats before grilling cut HCA levels by up to 100 percent. Herbs including basil, mint, sage and oregano may have similar effects.</li> <li> <strong>Pair grilled meats with vegetables, particularly cruciferous ones.</strong> In one study, men who ate about 2½ cups of Brussels sprouts every day for three weeks reduced their DNA damage significantly. Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cabbage, contain sulforaphane, a compound that may help the body clear DNA-damaging compounds more quickly.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Bottom Line:</strong> Keep your grill. While some studies suggest that grilling produces compounds linked with cancer, the risks associated with eating grilled meats are relatively small when you look at the big picture. </p> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related-group-1"><legend>Related Content Group 1</legend><div class="field field-type-text field-field-relatedtitle1"> <div class="field-label">Related Content Title 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Healthy Grilling Tips and Recipes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-label">Related Links 1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101_basics_techniques/kitchen_tips_techniques/13_best_grilling_tips">13 Best Grilling Tips</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/healthy_cooking/healthy_cooking_101_basics_techniques/kitchen_tips_techniques/8_tips_for_foolproof_roasting_on_the_grill">8 Tips for Foolproof Roasting on the Grill</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_recipes_for_bbq_sauce_marinades_rubs">Healthy Recipes for BBQ Sauce, Marinades &amp; Rubs</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_grilled_fish_recipes_grilled_seafood_recipes">Healthy Grilled Fish Recipes &amp; Grilled Seafood Recipes </a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_grilled_salmon_recipes">Healthy Grilled Salmon Recipes</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/recipe_slideshows/healthy_picnic_coleslaws_and_salads">Healthy Coleslaws and Picnic Salads</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_grilled_shrimp_recipes">Healthy Grilled Shrimp Recipes</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_grilling_recipes">Healthy Grilling Recipes</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cynthia Sass, M.P.H., R.D. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-publication"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> May/June 2009 </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/nutrition_news_information/does_grilling_cause_cancer#comments Cynthia Sass, M.P.H., R.D.

According to new research from the University of Barcelona, men feel more alert—more quickly—than women do after drinking a caffeinated beverage. In the study, participants sipped a caffeinated espresso, then rated how alert they felt 10, 20 and 30 minutes later. Men reported feeling less drowsy after only 10 minutes and sustained the mental boost for the entire half hour. Women got a "kick" from the espresso, too, but rated it weaker than the men did.</p> <p>And as it turns out, just anticipating the stimulating effects of caffeine may be enough—particularly for women—to feel them. Using the same methods, researchers also looked at the mental effects of decaffeinated coffee. Ten minutes after drinking a cup of decaf, women reported feeling significantly more alert. The men reported only a slight mental boost. "Women may be more likely than men to experience a placebo response [to caffeine]," says Ana Adan, Ph.D., lead author and research head of the Psychopharmacology and Drug Dependence Group at the University of Barcelona.</p> <p>By Fiona Kenny, R.D.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/nutrition_news_information/who_gets_a_bigger_mental_boost_from_caffeine_men_or_wome#comments Fiona Kenny, R.D.

Just downstairs, on the sidewalk in front of the hospital, a farmers’ market is in full swing. Roberto Rodriguez is arranging flats of organic strawberries so fragrant you can smell them from 10 feet away. In the stall next door, stalks of rhubarb and artichokes are piled high near bouquets of garden roses. On a table, paper bags are overflowing with a potpourri of market produce and flowers. "Pick-of-the-market bags," Maring explains. "If you are too busy to shop, you can just reserve one of these." Everywhere, people are smiling and saying, "Hey, Preston!"</p> <p>If it seems as if Dr. Maring, a tall, graying man, knows everyone at this farmers’ market it’s because he does: he started it. In 2003, Maring helped to get this market off the ground and then persuaded Kaiser to start farmers’ markets at 30 other hospitals. Says Maring: "If we can just get people to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, we can really impact people’s health."</p> <p>He also set about revamping the hospital food system by getting the health-care company to buy more fresh produce from local farms. In 2006, Kaiser Permanente purchased only 25 of the 250 tons of produce served in 20 Northern California hospitals from local farms. In three years, that amount has risen to 74 tons. The Kaiser project now serves as a model for hospitals around the country and is part of a worldwide initiative to make health care more sustainable, called Health Care Without Harm. </p> <p>This and other farmers’ markets not only cut down on the average 1,500 miles food travels from farm to fork, they also help create local jobs. Strawberry farmer Roberto Rodriguez has hired five more people since Kaiser’s Oakland market started, and devoted half of his 37 acres to growing organic berries. "As my 6-year-old daughter gets older, I don’t want her playing in fields near so many pesticides," he says. "Now, with the market here, I have buyers for organic strawberries so I can plant almost half my crops organic."</p> <p>But the most important thing is that the market has done what Maring hoped it would do: it has made people healthier. Take Matt Kinch, the 53-year-old building engineer who has lost 63 pounds since he began shopping at the farmers’ market. "Now I have at least two vegetables per meal based on whatever is in season," he says.</p> <p>In a time when the words antioxidants, omega-3s and probiotics appear on so many packaged foods, Maring’s advice to eat more vegetables may seem a little quaint. Yet it’s the same message being sent out by dozens of national health organizations. "We know that eating fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet reduces the risk of obesity and chronic disease, such as diabetes, some cancers and heart disease," says Heidi Blanck, Ph.D., a senior scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2000, national goals were set by federal health agencies of getting more than half of Americans to eat five daily servings of fruits and vegetables by 2010. Yet, according to the CDC’s biennial surveys, fruit and vegetable consumption remained essentially static from 1998 to 2007, and latest figures show that fewer than one in four Americans are eating the recommended five a day.</p> <p>"Think what would happen if more people shopped for their food at farmers’ markets—eating the fruits and vegetables as they become ripe each season," Maring continues. "People would discover just how good fresh produce can be—apricots that are picked ripe are so much tastier and more nutritious than those that have to be picked hard to endure shipping," he notes. "Plus, these markets inspire people to try new vegetables, such as kohlrabi or mustard greens, and to cook more at home."</p> <p>Which is exactly what Maring loves to do. Ever since his son, a trained chef, showed him a few recipes and inspired him to cook more, Maring has become an ardent home cook. Tonight, for instance, he’ll take what he’s found at the market—some spring leeks, artichokes, carrots in his basket—and make an EatingWell recipe: "Spring vegetable stew," he says, smiling. Followed, perhaps by the Apricot-Almond Clafouti. His shopping is done.</p> <p>We were so inspired by Dr. Maring’s story that we collaborated with him to produce our latest cookbook, EatingWell in Season: The Farmers’ Market Cookbook (The Countryman Press). In it, you will find our favorite recipes, organized into seasonal chapters, that include the fruits and vegetables you might pick up at a farmers’ market or as part of your community-supported-agriculture share. The book also has a handy guide with shopping, prep, storage and cooking tips for more than 60 fruits and vegetables. Plus we include recommendations for our favorite kitchen tools, profiles of farmers and farmers’ markets and information on why eating in season is better for you and for the environment.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/food_news_origins/seasonal_local/eatingwell_in_season/eating_in_season_a_recipe_for_life#comments Lisa Gosselin May/June 2009 Food News & Origins - Seasonal & Local Thu, 20 Aug 2009 18:00:56 +0000 Sarah Hoff 9941 at http://www.eatingwell.com The Hype about Sulfites http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/wine_beer_spirits_guide/the_hype_about_sulfites <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do you need to be concerned about the additives in your wine? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>For nearly 35 years Cathy Corison, founder of Corison Winery, has looked out over her Napa Valley vineyard with pride. Her vineyard has been free of pesticides for years. She uses cover crops to add nitrogen to the soil. When destructive leafhoppers appeared in her vineyard, she sprayed her vines with mineral oil instead of chemicals to kill the larvae. The vines yield a mere one to one and a half tons of grapes per acre, but wine enthusiasts claim they produce unparalleled fruit and stunning wines. Corison’s commitment has always been to quality over quantity. But even though she farms organically and employs sustainable agriculture practices, Corison wines are not certified organic. One reason is she adds sulfites to her wines.</p> <p>Sulfites are a naturally occurring class of compounds and they’re everywhere: most living organisms, including humans, produce sulfites. Our bodies produce about 1,000 mg of sulfites each day—a level that’s 100 times higher than the amount in your average glass of red wine. In our bodies, sulfites act as antioxidants—scavenging the free radicals that damage cells. They serve a similar function in food and wine, preventing the chemical reactions that cause off flavors to develop. And the fact is, even if a winemaker doesn’t add sulfites to a wine, some sulfites are created naturally during the winemaking process.</p> <p>So why aren’t sulfites allowed in certified organic wines? “When the USDA was developing standards for certified organic wine, a few winemakers who were already making wines without adding sulfites lobbied to keep added sulfites out of certified organic wine,” says Glenn McGourty, M.S., a University of California Cooperative Extension winegrowing and plant scienceadvisor. Their argument was that organic foods shouldn’t contain added preservatives. And they won. While some winemakers were creating wines specifically for the less than 1 percent of the U.S. population with sulfite allergies, others ­believe adding sulfites hides the wine’s delicate flavors and its terroir—the authenticity and sense of place you can taste in a wine. “Adding sulfites to wine can mask subtle flavors that would’ve otherwise added to the natural bouquet of the wine,” says Paul Frey of ­certified organic Frey Winery in Mendocino, California.</p> <p>Corison agrees that using too many sulfites can negatively affect a wine’s flavor. But she, like many other winemakers, argues that it’s impossible to make premium wines without using any added sulfites. (In fact only about 1 percent of wine sold worldwide is certified organic.) Sulfites are added to suppress wild yeasts and bacteria and minimize byproducts of chemical reactions, all things that can lead to off flavors. Corison uses only as many sulfites as she needs and as a result, her wines have only 50 parts per million of total sulfites at bottling (the upper limit is 350 ppm), 20 of which are produced naturally by the yeast (most wines contain 25 to 150 ppm). Just adding this small amount of sulfites helps to preserve the fruity character of Corison’s wines. Sulfites also slow the oxidation process, helping to preserve wine’s flavor as it ages. Organic wines with no added sulfites age unpredictably, notes McGourty. “The downside to not using sulfites is that those wines are notoriously unstable over time.”</p> <p>There is an alternative for consumers who aren’t concerned about sulfites but who are concerned about the environment. Look for wines labeled “made with organic grapes.” These wines are made with grapes grown according to certified organic standards and processed in certified organic facilities. “Sulfites are allowed in these wines, and their quality is much better overall,” says McGourty.</p> <p><em>Amy Bieber, M.S., M.P.H., is a freelance writer in Temecula, California, and a frequent contributor to EatingWell.</em></p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/wine_beer_spirits_guide/the_hype_about_sulfites#comments May/June 2009 Healthy Cooking - Wine, Beer & Spirits Guide Thu, 20 Aug 2009 17:38:27 +0000 Sarah Hoff 9924 at http://www.eatingwell.com Easy Grill Roasting http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/quick_healthy_cooking/easy_grilling <p>Does anything inspire more “oohs” and “ahs” than golden, juicy cuts of meat hot off a grill?

We wanted in on this game, so, never ones to be shy, we bought a testosterone-doped grill that arrived at our house in Connecticut on a flatbed truck and had to be off-loaded with a forklift.</p> <p>For a time, we lived in grill bliss: seared steaks, jerk-rubbed pork chops, oohs and ahs aplenty.</p> <p>Then we realized we were going to have to haul that behemoth in and out of the garage at the beginning and end of every grill season. Getting it indoors last winter was no problem. It was all downstairs. Yeah, somebody’s back bore the brunt of it, but two Advil and the job was done.</p> <p>For months, we missed the grill fare, but summer comes inevitably, even in New England. And then came the epic struggle. Upstairs to the deck, six steps that might as well be six flights—the two of us struggling under the grill like the middle-aged oafs we are, the dog barking, the rail bulging as the thing knocked against it.</p> <p>What we’ll do to get back to those oohs and ahs. Yes, we’re now ensconced in the usual fare from the grate: chicken and chops, caramelized right over the heat. But to bring out the best in the grill—and the most admiration from an audience—we like to break out the big cuts of meat: the pork loins, the legs of lamb. Cut into a crispy, brown turkey breast and get ready for your big bow!</p> <p>Those big cuts of meat that we love happen to be incredibly easy to grill, once you know the secret of indirect heat. A grill’s ambient but intense heat roasts these larger cuts to perfection. What’s more, it produces an even better crust than an indoor oven affords. And that great, smoky flavor!</p> <p>Listen, no one wants to turn on the oven in the summer. But that’s no reason to stop roasting. You’ve already got an oven out on the deck. So with less trouble than you think, you can grill-roast perfectly caramelized chicken thighs, spice-rubbed pork loins and smoky turkey breasts in no time.</p> <p>So here’s how it works: You set the cuts to the side of the heat, not directly over it. If you’ve got a gas grill like ours, you preheat it then turn off the left or right side, or just the back burners if you have a front-to-back system. If you’ve got a charcoal grill, you build a hot, well-ashed coal bed in the center of the grill, then rake the coals to the side, leaving one side without any direct heat. In either case, you set the meat on the portion of the grill grate without any direct heat under it. Cover the grill and away you go.</p> <p>Once you’ve got the technique down, you, too, can get the most out of your grill in the summer. And best of all, you’ll have used it well and truly by the time you have to lug it back down the stairs. Unless, of course, you live in a place where no lugging is necessary. But if that’s the case we don’t even want to hear about it.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/healthy_cooking/quick_healthy_cooking/easy_grilling#comments Bruce Weinstein & Mark Scarbrough May/June 2009 Healthy Cooking - Quick & Healthy Cooking Tue, 18 Aug 2009 20:04:55 +0000 Paula Joslin 9717 at http://www.eatingwell.com 4 Gourmet Chicken Recipes http://www.eatingwell.com/4_gourmet_chicken_recipes_0 <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-author"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Jessie Price </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-subtitle"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 4 delicious ways to dress up chicken breasts. </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-related1"><div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-relatedlinks1"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/lemon_chicken_stir_fry.html">Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes/indian_spiced_chicken_pitas.html">Indian-Spiced Chicken Pitas</a> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/recipes/seared_chicken_with_apricot_sauce.html">Seared Chicken with Apricot Sauce</a> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <a href="/recipes_menus/menus/chinese_chicken_noodle_salad_menu">Chinese Chicken &amp; Noodle Salad Menu</a> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>When I first started dating my husband he lived in Incline Village, Nevada. Every time I visited, his housemate Patrick would rush in from work to fuel up with a meal before heading to the gym. Patrick claimed that he was on a “chicken and broccoli diet” that would, along with all of his weight lifting, help him get buff. His routine went something like this: he’d walk in the door, usually yakking on his cell phone, go to the kitchen, take a boneless, skinless chicken breast out of the refrigerator, put it on a baking sheet along with some broccoli, douse everything with Mrs. Dash and throw it in the oven. Then he’d go watch car racing on TV for 15 minutes and come back and eat. He was in and out of the house in 30 minutes most days.</p> <p>And that’s part of the beauty of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They are the ultimate healthy, quick convenience food. They are lean and cook up in minutes. But what Patrick was overlooking was that they’re also endlessly versatile. In these four recipes we use them shredded in a Chinese chicken salad; diced and stir-fried with vegetables; grilled with Indian spices; and sautéed and served with an apricot sauce. Patrick may not have been working any magic with his diet from a culinary perspective. But he was onto something. Chicken breasts are just plain easy. And with delicious recipes like these, you may decide to start your own chicken diet plan.</p> <p><em>Breast Reduction</em>: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts range in size from about 5 ounces to over 12 ounces each. For recipes calling for one 4-ounce breast per person, look for 5-ounce breasts and remove the “tender”—the thin strip of meat from the underside (about 1 ounce of meat)—­before using. Wrap and freeze the tenders; when you have enough, use them in a stir-fry or for oven-baked chicken fingers. If you cannot find 5-ounce chicken breasts, use 8-ounce breasts and cut them in half crosswise.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/4_gourmet_chicken_recipes_0#comments Jessie Price May/June 2009 Tue, 18 Aug 2009 15:59:28 +0000 Paula Joslin 9685 at http://www.eatingwell.com Boost Fiber to Slim Down http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/weight_loss_diet_plans/diet_reports_information/boost_fiber_to_slim_down <p>The average American adult gains one to two pounds each year, according to various reports.

Researchers at Brigham Young University in Utah followed the eating habits of 252 middle-aged women for nearly two years and found that those who increased their fiber intake generally lost weight. Women who decreased the fiber in their diets gained. The scientists boiled the findings into a single weight-loss formula: boosting fiber by 8 grams for every 1,000 calories consumed resulted in losing about 4½ pounds over the course of the study. And this held true whether a woman was eating 3 or 25 grams of fiber a day at the start of the study. While it helps you feel full, “fiber has no calories,” says Larry Tucker, Ph.D., lead researcher and professor in the Department of Exercise Sciences at Brigham Young. So if you fill up on high-fiber foods you crowd out less-healthy foods, explains Tucker. Try it for yourself. If you’re consuming 2,000 calories per day, aim to increase your fiber by 16 grams. Here are four foods that will help you get your fill.

But picking the wrong diet may muddle your memory, say researchers.</p> <p>In a new study from Tufts University, 19 overweight women followed either a “low-carbohydrate” or a “low-calorie” diet, based on American Dietetic Association guidelines, for three weeks. After the first week, people in the low-carbohydrate group, who were told to completely eliminate carbohydrates from their diets, did worse on tests of working memory (i.e., why did I walk into this room?) and visuospatial memory (remembering locations on a map) than people in the low-calorie group. </p> <p>“The brain’s primary fuel is glucose,” says Holly Taylor, Ph.D., cognitive psychologist at Tufts and co-lead investigator on the study. Eating carbohydrate-rich foods—grains, fruits, vegetables—is by far the most efficient way of keeping the brain’s glucose supply on “full.” But the body can only store one to two days’ worth of glucose, and when these stores are gone, glucose levels in the blood (also known as “blood sugar”) drop. Fats and proteins can be backup fuel sources, but they don’t provide the glucose needed to sustain peak brain power. </p> <p>Luckily for the study subjects, “memory performance ­returned to normal when we re­introduced carbohydrates in the second week of the study,” said Taylor. A piece of fruit or one-­quarter of a slice of bread seemed to be enough.</p> <p>Even though Taylor’s study suggests that tiny amounts of carbs are enough to preserve memory, a few other studies suggest that popular low-carb diets—such as Atkins, which allows more carbohydrates than Taylor’s study does in the second week—may compromise mental abilities. One study, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2007, showed that people on a higher-carbohydrate diet processed information more quickly than those on a low-carbohydrate diet.</p> <p>Fortunately, all diets don’t dampen brain power. A balanced, low-calorie diet may, in fact, boost it. A study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences earlier this year showed that restricting total calories by up to 30 percent for three months actually increased verbal memory scores (i.e., how many words were remembered 30 minutes after seeing them) in a group of elderly people. Researchers suspect that losing weight improved the body’s ability to use glucose, and that this allowed the brain to work more smoothly.</p> <p><strong>Bottom Line:</strong> Be cautious about striking carbohydrates from your diet: you may lose more than just a few pounds. The Recommended Dietary Allowance for carbohydrates is 130 grams per day, a number based on the amount of glucose the brain needs to function optimally. What does 130 grams look like? A cup of oatmeal, an apple, two slices of whole-wheat bread and ¾ cup of cooked pasta.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/nutrition_health/weight_loss_diet_plans/diet_reports_information/is_dieting_a_brain_drain#comments Rachael Moeller Gorman May/June 2009 Diet, Nutrition & Health - Weight Loss & Diet Plans Wed, 29 Jul 2009 20:06:37 +0000 Penelope Wall 8755 at http://www.eatingwell.com Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemon_chicken_stir_fry.html <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemon_chicken_stir_fry.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/recipes/MP6868.JPG" alt="Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe" title="Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/lemon_chicken_stir_fry.html" target="_blank">Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry</a></div> <div>Spiked with lots of zesty lemon, this delectable chicken stir-fry has a colorful mix of snow peas, carrots and scallions.
