Whenever I run out of meal ideas to cook, stir fry healthy recipes always save the day! When I cook meat or chicken, I always save some for leftovers because I use them for soups, sandwiches, and stir-fried rice. The best thing about stir fry is that you can use chicken, meat, seafood, or just veggies and they are already a complete meal. Usually, I make some stir fry with rice for breakfast to kick start the day.

A friend of mine shared her recipe for stir-fried rice in chicken, shrimp, and with noodles. I love how the different flavors and colors come together in such a simple dish!

The basics for stir fry ingredients are veggies, your choice of meat, your choice of sauce, and add-ins such as spring onions, scrambled eggs, or noodles. The secret lies in the flavor of the meat and the sauce. You can even customize the sauce according to preference if you want it sweet, spicy, or a bit salty. I like mine with a dash of sriracha, especially if it’s seafood. And lots of garlic! I even sprinkle garlic bits on top of my stir fried rice.
