• You guys know I am all about the quick, easy, and healthy meals, right? Well, this recipe for vegetarian stir fry is definitely a winner. It took me just 5 minutes to make it. For real! I actually timed myself. Well, technically, I timed Quinn’s nap and he slept for 6 minutes (this kid does not sleep during the day), and I finished cooking the whole meal in that amount of time. Anyway, here is a delicious, nutritious, and satisfying recipe for you! Enjoy!

    5-minute protein-packed vegetarian stir fry


    • 1 16-ounce bag of frozen stir fry veggies
    • 1 cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame
    • rice (I used boil-in-bag brown rice)
    • soy sauce
    • extra virgin olive oil


    Cook rice as directed. Meanwhile, in a large pan on the stove top, add 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, stir fry veggies, edamame, chickpeas, and as much soy sauce as you like. Cook until veggies are warm and no longer frozen.

    Ok, this post title is a little misleading. I probably should have called it: “What I Ate Wednesday {I Eat A Lot When I Feed a Tiny Human Multiple Times a Day}.” Basically, it’s just a post about what I ate yesterday. It’s not based on what a breastfeeding mother should eat or anything like […]
