Chicken, Bell Pepper, and Broccoli Stir-Fry


Winter colds are running amok in my household. I had a horrible head cold two weeks ago and I'm still fighting the lingering stuffy nose.

Then yesterday Alex informed me that he now has the head cold.

What to do?

Make healthy dinners full of...

Immune-boosting selenium (cashews)

Vitamin-C (Bell Peppers and Broccoli)

Lean Protein (Chicken)

Here is the first attempt.
