What to Eat This Week: Healthy Stir-Fry Concoctions

what to eat lead
Something I’ve been really into making lately is stir fry. Stir fry is awesome because you can make it in huge portions and then heat it up little by little throughout the week. It’s also a way to use up a ton of stuff in your fridge — pretty much anything tastes great thrown in a stir fry! For me, (since I’m especially lazy and still learning how to actually cook) this usually consists of noodles, a packet of frozen vegetables, tofu, and an interesting but sometimes weird mix of whatever sauces I can find in my fridge.

In an attempt to incorporate more healthy foods into my diet, teach myself some classier stir-fry recipes, and switch up my routine a bit, I went on the hunt for five healthy and unique stir-fry concoctions. And I absolutely loved what I found. So here, this week, if you get stuck on what to make for dinner, try out one (or a few) of these delicious recipes packed with sweet potato, peppers, salmon, tofu, cauliflower, and more. You won’t be sorry.
