Healthy Food Recipe

A healthy food recipe doesn't mean you cannot enjoy the occasional stir fry.

In fact, stir fry is a healthy way to cook. Because it is quick, it helps to lock in valuable nutrients you could otherwise lose from boiling vegetables.

Whether you're into low fat or low calorie eating, try this quick and easy healthy recipe for a truly wonderful meal. To retain all the ingredients as you stir briskly, a wok or large frying pan with deep sides is essential when you stir fry
