Shrimp Stir Fry

My family loves stir fry, and I love that it is stock full of veggies and healthy proteins. This dish has a light flavor and is super healthy. It can work with a Keto or paleo diet as well.  I loved that it only took about 20 minutes, start to finish.

I mean who has time to sit there and prep for hours at a  time, not this mama.  My girls are always running around and super busy, so I have to think on my feet and prep fast.  While I was making the dish this evening, my 1 year old came up to me with a book, so of course I had to sit on the floor and read it to her.  In between chops or stirs, she would bring me another book.  Talk about juggling.
