Asian Lo Mein Stir Fry
I hope your summer is off to a great start. It’s finally starting to warm up and get sunny outside. This week, I made an Asian Lo mein stir fry. It is a little higher in calories and carbs than what I usually make, but that’s because of the lo mein noodles and the portion size. The portion size on the package is 2 oz of noodles, but with all of the veggies and shrimp, I could not finish that much. The recipe is supposed to serve 4, but it could easily serve 5-6. It’s very tasty and so simple! I got all of the ingredients at HEB and the entire dish was finished (from prep to serving) in 20 minutes!

When veggies are warm, add soy sauce, hoisin, and seasonings. Continue to saute.

I met Dr. Carp, the founder of Miracle Noodles at #FNCE, in 2016. I was immediately fascinated and surprised by how tasty the samples of Pad thai were. I felt this product was an excellent option for my clients with weight management goals, for those individuals who wanted to minimize starch intake and balance hormones. Dr. Carp generously provided over 50 packs of sample products that were shared with the Pflugerville Fire Department Staff, and Round Rock ISD teachers and staff. The firemen appreciated the donations and created several delicious recipes. Thanks again Dr. Carp, the Optimal RD community is looking forward to what health delicious option you will create next.
