Healthy Stir-Fry Vegetables
Nothing beats a yummy stir-fry recipe. Period.
I know it, you know it, we all know it. It’s the perfect way to get in a lot of veggies without sacrificing any flavor.
I will even take this a step further and say that this is the perfect dorm room stir-fry recipe because it more than half of the ingredients are veggies you can keep in your pantry!
However, when it comes to canned food it’s important to view the nutritional information on the back and take note of the sodium content, which is something manufacturers easily slip into canned goods to preserve their food, however it isn’t necessary in such large amounts.
I paired this recipe with some pan-fried tofu (recipe coming soon!) and put it over a bed of quinoa. Before you make it though….
Bell peppers, like oranges, contain Vitamin C, a nutrient that helps support our immune system!
Iron is also found in bell peppers and helps to prevent anemia (a condition that decreases the bodies ability to transport oxygen throughout your blood)
While also full of Vitamin C, broccoli contains Vitamin K, a nutrients that aids in producing proteins that support bone health and wound healing (more specifically blood clotting).
