Stir Fry with Beef, Vegetables, and Quinoa pasta. This is a GREAT recipe for Os. When I eat this, I feel REALLY GOOD! I'm also hungry again about an hour or two later, so cook plenty. When I get the second helping an hour later, I'm good. I never feel stuffed, just satisfied and full of energy. (I know the pasta contains corn, but I've never felt ill effects from it. If you find a quinoa pasta that doesn't contain corn; YEAH!)

  5. In a small amount of extra virgin olive oil and some minced garlic, cook the diced beef.

  7. Start cooking your vegetables in the order of your preference. (I cook them Carrot, Broccoli, Onion, and Celery.)
