5 super stir fry recipes with no added sugar

When it comes to throwing together a stir fry for dinner, many people reach for a jar, packet, bottle or sachet of sauce.

But if you want to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet, you might want to think twice. Many of the commercially prepared stir fry sauces contain vast amounts of sugar (some are up to 19% sugar).

5 super stir-fries to make with NO added sugar

For instance one of the MasterFoods recipe base pouches for Teriyaki Chicken, which is designed to make a meal for 4, contains more than 8 teaspoons of sugar.

To make it easy for you we have pulled together five of our favourite stir-fries that are made from scratch without a packet insight.

Don’t worry, it doesn’t add much time at all to your preparation. But you’ll know exactly what is in your meal, which can really help with your weight loss.

These recipes all come from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
