Veggie Shrimp Stir Fry

THIS meal right here has the taste and the nutrition, it doesn’t get better than that! It satisfied my taste buds and allowed me to get multiple servings of veggies in – not to mention the amount of fiber, color, and lean protein too!

This Stir Fry is super easy to make, the only time consuming part is chopping all the veggies but it’s worth it in the end. And it makes the best leftovers too!
