Pineapple Ham Stir Fry

Pineapple Ham Stir Fry

Since I have been diagnosed with Celiac's disease, there are many a food nationality that I have not been able to enjoy fully. Chinese food is one of the those food nationalities. My husband  and I would eat Chinese food at least once a week, if not more. We discovered that even though I was staying away from the noodles and fried parts, I was still getting sick. Then a very wise person told me it was the soy sauce. I had no idea at the time that soy sauce contained wheat. Luckily for us, there is gluten free soy sauce. My husband and I have been making our Chinese food at home. Not only does it save us money, but also peace of mind for myself.
This is also a great left over dish that I make when I have a big ham. Hope you like this left over dish as much as we did. Happy eating!

1 package ham cubes
1 cup frozen peas
