This was a weekly meal in my house growing up and stir fry’s are one of my absolute favorite meals because it’s so simple, super healthy and so satisfying. I also love making extra to have leftovers for lunch or even to freeze for an easy weeknight dinner. I generally adjust the vegetables depending on what I have left in my fridge but it’s usually the same few ones. I love adding chicken, but this recipe can also be made with beef or just with vegetables.

If you follow the principles of food combining like I do this works really well served over cauliflower rice but stir fry is generally served over rice or quinoa which is also incredible!
