Stir Fry is one of our favorite low carb meals. It’s such a versatile dish: Choose a Protein like poultry, seafood, tofu, eggs or beef, pile on the Vegetables, then smother it in healthy herbs and spices. Just make sure you have all the veggies prepared before you start to cook. Once you’re ready, this dish can be pulled together in 10 minutes tops. (Healthy hint: If you can find pre-cut stir-fry vegetables at the supermarket, you’ll save prep time!)

Pro tip: If you’d like, feel free to add in a Healthy Fat with a handful of peanuts or cashews! They add a nice crunch and are jam-packed with nutrition.
