Making a stir-fry is a no-brainer , and a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into one tasty meal. Start by sautéing some lean protein, such as diced chicken. Then toss in some fresh ginger for flavor. Another plus: Studies show ginger has a thermic effect, so it cranks up metabolism while promoting satiety. Stir in a sliced bell pepper for a healthy dose of vitamin C. Pour it all over brown rice and you get a nice kick of dietary fiber.
