Veggie Stir Fry Dinner in 10 Minutes

I know you're thinking yeah right, a healthy dinner in 10 minutes?! It is possible with just a few simple ingredients! Eight ingredients and 10 minutes are all you need for a quick & healthy dinner.

I've been trying to be more mindful of my meat consumption and have been loving making plant based dinners for #meatlessmonday. Even if you're not vegan/vegetarian, making just one plant based dinner a week has so many benefits for your health and the environment!

  • Increased consumption of plant-based foods, such as vegetables, beans, and nuts, can improve heart health and reduce the risk of heart disease

  • eplacing a half serving of meat every day and replacing it with a plant based protein like beans or tofu can decrease your risk of getting type 2 diabetes

  • Plant based proteins tend to be lower in calories and have more fiber than their meat based counterparts, helping you better maintain a healthy weight

  • Eating less processed and red meats can promote kidney health

  • Skipping one serving of beef every Monday for a year saves the equivalent emissions to driving 348 miles in a car

  • Livestock production uses 75% of the earth’s agricultural land and creates more greenhouse gases than the entire transportation sector – that's all the cars, trucks, planes, and trains in the world combined!
