Stir-fry is a healthy and easy way to incorporate a variety of foods into your diet. When making a stir-fry, choose your favourite protein option (such as chicken, beef, chickpeas or tofu) and add as many vegetables as you would like. Follow this quick and simple recipe:

Purchase chicken breasts (pre-sliced into strips) and pre-chopped veggies. Sauté in a frying pan until meat is cooked and veggies are tender, then serve over quinoa. Voila! 

FAQ: What is quinoa and how do you cook it?
Although used like a grain, quinoa is actually in the same family as spinach and beets! Its characteristics are similar to most grains (such as lowering blood pressure and preventing heart failure), yet its nutritional benefits are superior to others. Substitute quinoa for rice in your favourite recipes, as it
boasts almost twice the protein content and is a complete protein; in other words, it contains all nine amino acids essential to the diet! 
Not only is quinoa nutritious, it is also extremely fast to prepare! Just pour the desired amount of quinoa into a pot, plus double the amount of water. Bring to a boil, and let simmer for 10 minutes. Let stand, covered, for another 6 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve!
Remember: Quinoa triples in size when cooked (so if you cook one cup, you will end up with 3... Perfect for leftovers!)
