When I first started Inspiralized, one of my first recipes was for Lo Mein with zucchini noodles.
Now, we’re rounding out the Lo Mein trifecta with a chicken Lo Mein. Are you Lo Mein’ed out yet?
Chinese take out can be laden with ingredients like MSG and insane amounts of sodium and hidden sugars. Making a homemade, spiralized version is way to have your cake and eat it too – enjoy Lo Mein flavors while maintaining your healthy diet.
You get it by now!
One of my healthy takeout secrets is the Inspiralizer – order veggies or meat in a sauce or a soup (like Hot and Sour) and then spiralize a veggie while the takeout is on its way over. By the time the food arrives, you’ll have your “noodles” and you can just toss the noodles with the veggies/meat and you have a lighter, healthier takeout meal.
And just like true takeout, these save well as leftovers! I’d recommend adding another splash of soy sauce before serving, since the zucchini waters down the Lo Mein sauce as it sits.
Yesterday, my nanny went home because her basement was flooding, so I had a full day with Luca (well, she left around 11am), and it was exactly what the doctor ordered – a Mommy and Luca day where we went on a long walk, played, and I didn’t stress about not getting any work done. We went to the bookstore (I bought him some new books!), the grocery store, and we ended the day with a big mess – Luca ate curry for the first time! He LOVED it.
