20-minute Immunity Boosting Stir-Fry

As we all know the effects of CoronaVirus-19 could take a toll on your immune system, and instead of spending our time overly concerned and stressed that you ‘might’ pick-up the virus, I would rather equip you with the tools to take all preventative measures that you can. As mentioned in a previous recipe post, Vitamin C is the bodies’ main micro-nutrient that helps to strengthen our immune system. And some of the foods richest in Vitamin C are Broccoli, Red Bell Peppers, Garlic, and Ginger, so what’s better than an immunity boosting, Vitamin-C rich stir-fry to help prevent the spread of infection!!
