Last week I flew to California for a quick 36 hour trip an36-houre time I got home, I was totally beat. Even though I was flying for 6+ hours each day, which basically means I was sitting on my butt all day long, it is amazing how much travel can really take it out of you.

Flying is especially draining for me since I find I get super dehydrated, I can't find proper meals, I can't move around and my digestion always gets out of whack.

Being away also tends to throw my eating off track and bit. I find I don't eat as much produce as I'm used to and by the time I get home, all I'm craving is a plate piled high with veggies. Today's rainbow veggie quinoa stir fry was my answer. I whipped it up for dinner the night I got home and nearly instantaneously felt better. I was back to my normal self.

Luckily I had a fully stocked fridge when I got home and was able to whip up this beauty without having to go the store! I honestly wasn't even planning on sharing it with you, but as soon as I saw the assortment of veggies in front of me, I knew you needed it.

You can't go wrong with a rainbow colored meal!

Of course, you can use whichever assortment of vegetables you have on hand, but I personally adore all the color this one has. Especially the purple cabbage..how pretty is that!?

Stir also happens to be one of the easiest things to make on the planet. Basically you just saute a bunch of veggies in a little bit of soy sauce/tamari, serve it with a whole grain and call it a day.

It was my mom's go-to meal when we were growing up and I still turn to them whenever I'm in a pinch.

To make this recipe, all you need is one pan and 10 ingredients. It took me about 20 minutes to make, including the prep time of chopping all the veggies, but if you went with pre-chopped veggies from the grocery store, I think you could cut it down to 10 minutes.

Easy, simple and veggie-packed, just the way we like it!

Stir fries are also one of those recipes that are super adaptable. If you don't have a certain veggie, swap it out for something different.

Not a fan of tofu? Chicken, shrimp, beef or tempeh are great choices!
Don't have any quinoa? Use brown rice!
Allergic to soy? Use coconut aminos in its place.

And the list goes on…

You can totally make it your own and really can't go wrong. And what I've come to discover is that it also makes excellent leftovers.

Which means….MEAL PREP! (happy dance)

Rainbow Vegetable Quinoa Stir Fry is an awesome MEAL PREP recipe -- makes 5 - 6 servings and will last you all week!

I'm really getting into this Meal Prep business. I love having a fully stocked fridge each week, so when I'm having a busy week like I am this week, I don't have to worry about what to cook. It's pretty dang awesome!
