Vegetable Chicken Stir-Fry

This simple meal is high in fiber and low in sugar and saturated fats. The vegetables are not overly fibrous and are considered to be neutralizing for the digestive system. The ginger works as a digestive aid as well. To make a vegetarian version, omit the chicken and add the vegetables directly to the olive oil, garlic, and ginger, then add 1 cup of shelled edamame soybeans (total stir-fry time should not exceed 10 minutes with the soybeans). Serves 6.
