Chicken & Veggie Stir Fry

Last night's dinner was definitely one of my favorites! We had some chicken & veggie stir fry served on cauliflower rice to help keep it low carb.

We typically try to limit our carbs in the evening and so this meal was ideal. It is a great way to change things up when you're getting in a healthy food rut and need something new. Plus, it's super easy! It's even easier if you have the cauliflower rice prepped in advance.

We also typically have all the ingredients (except the zucchini) on hand so it's pretty much always a back up plan for dinner when we have no idea what to make.
