Stir-frys are the perfect prep-ahead meal.
Not only are they easy to vary and alter to different tastes and preferences, stir-frys are also easy to fill with an abundance of vegetables.
This Garlic Shrimp Stir-Fry utilizes not only shrimp but also edamame, boosting the protein content of this dish more than the traditional stir-fry.
Alongside whole wheat noodles and a variety of vegetables, this dish is simple to throw together and makes for a great high-protein meal.
