I’ve been looking for a way to incorporate more leafy greens into my diet, to compliment my increasingly meat-centric meals.  This stir-fry is the perfect thing for when you want a warm and healthy meal.  I feel like the secret ingredient (which might be completely normal and not a secret at all) is the sugar snap peas.  They add a nice bit of crunch and work nicely with all of the other ingredients.  Option to start off with your favorite protein and work in the vegetables, or to pair with (my favorite), baked chicken wings!
