Our No Quarter Given – Health for Students campaign does not set out to place blame on students if they are consuming unhealthy foods or if they may be leading an unhealthy lifestyle. Instead, the aim of our campaign is to provide students with information about how it is possible to lead a healthy lifestyle and one way in which we can help to achieve this aim is to offer all you student’s healthy meal alternatives to swap for the fast-food and take-outs that you may find yourself having on occasions.
An example that we have chosen to provide you with is a stir-fry which is such an easy, quick and healthy meal because you can include so many different food combinations all of which can be fresh ingredients that does not have to cost you a small fortune and the Supermarkets often have deals on stir-fry sauces. Now a stir-fry is also something that a takeaway restaurant offers but to save yourselves the ‘delivery charge’ it is possible to make your own and it does not take longer than 15-20 minutes including prep-time.
One of our campaign web and design co-ordinators and the publisher of the campaign blog entries decided to make her very own stir-fry this week. This meal was made using fresh and frozen ingredients and a sweet chilli sauce mix. The recipe is included below:
- Quorn pieces – high in protein and a vegetarian option (or substitute this for chicken, beef or prawns)
- Mixed sweet peppers
- Frozen mixed vegetables
- Stir-fry style noodles
- Sweet Chilli stir-fry sauce
As well as this, our co-ordinator also did some research into various other stir-fry recipes that are available online which provide all the ingredients along with the prep and cooking method.
