I can’t take all the credit for this Healthy Ginger Beef recipe. It’s actually my mom’s recipe that I’ve tweaked. Our entire family loves it! It only takes about 45 mins from start to finish.
Making a large amount of the beef marinade allows for the remaining liquid to be used as a sweet and tangy sauce. While I used bell peppers, carrots, and onions as the vegetables in the ginger beef stir fry, you can use anything you have on hand. I also make this same recipe with broccoli, snap peas, and bok choy.
This is probably the question I get asked most often. While most of my diet is plant-based, I do also eat animal proteins. Since I eat much less meat, I choose high-quality options when I do. Grass-fed* and finished beef is what I usually opt for. This means the animals were fed a diet of grass instead of grains/corn for 100% of their life. Remember, you are what your food eats. If they are eating genetically modified corn, so are you. Grass-fed beef also contains more nutrients than its grain-fed counterpart.

An ancient remedy, Ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial to a wide range of ailments.
I try to incorporate ginger every day whether it’s in food, supplement, or essential oil form. The gentle spiciness of ginger works well in both savoury and sweet recipes.
