Simple Summer Squash Stir Fry (AIP/Paleo)

Simple Summer Squash Stir Fry (AIP/Paleo)

I have a tendency to really over think the concept of recipe creation. I see so many awesome, unique and downright fancy recipes floating around on pinterest and facebook and on some of my fellow paleo and AIP blogger’s sites and I am so impressed by them. Everyone looks longingly at the AIP-ified pizza or ice cream, excited at the possibility of tasting a treat from their past. However, in reality, the day-to-day most of us are too busy to deal with fancy recipes and we know we shouldn’t be trying to recreate treats or junk food all of the time. We are running home from work, starving and ready to eat, we have kids to worry about, spouses to spend time with and emails to answer. It’s a weekday night and the goal is just to get food in our bodies and continue to meet our healing goals.

Often on these types of nights I am just winging it, when it comes to my meals. I am putting ingredients together and creating meals that I just don’t deem “internet worthy”. However, I was recently reminded of the fact that I created this site to help people with the day to-to-day stuff, not just the fun occasion, because it is the day to day that can get overwhelming and make it hard to stick to a healing regimen.

So, in that spirit, here is a super simple recipe that is perfect for a regular weekday night . It only takes about 20 minutes to make and it is yummy and perfect for summer. I hope you find it helpful and nourishing!
