January 9, 2018

 

You just can’t go wrong with a classic stir fry. Prepared the right way, it is low cal, packed with vitamins,  protein and it is simply delicious with a side of steamed rice or without. 

 

 While simple is always best, there are plenty of ways to jazz this up. Add hot peppers, green, red or yellow peppers. There are a variety of vegetables that go well with this type of stir fry, knap cabage, bean sprouts or sprouts of any kind, broccoli and other cruciferous veggies and root vegetables. Make it your own and serve it up with a nice glass of wine, light a candle and simply enjoy the flavor and knowing you are fueling your body with everything it needs.
