I try to have my fridge full of healthy foods but sometimes we can’t eat them fast enough. That’s where this simple stir fry comes in! I take out whatever meat I have in the freezer, toss the veggies into my wok and we are ready to go! My kids love the colors and flavor too.

I love that it is a quick, go to meal that puts healthy food on my table. It doesn’t matter what kind of veggies I have, they are all eaten. I especially love that it is an easy back up meal when I run out of time to make the masterful meal I’ve planned. My family loves to eat it on rice and I always have fortune cookies on hand for dessert.
