Quinoa Stir-Fry

Stir-fry's are an easy meal.  Add all your items in a pan or wok; heat to cook and in minutes you will have a satisfying, warm dish. This combination is another favourite of mine.  Although I don't generally like ginger, I tried it in this recipe and was pleasantly surprised.  It tastes delicious! 

Ginger is a helpful ingredient for treating various stomach problems such as nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). If you experience any of these symptoms, including ginger in your cooking or even drinking some in a warm tea may help. 

This stir-fry also includes lots of swiss chard and kale which should be a staple in everyone's daily routine.  Go Greens!!
