SuperCharged Chicken Lo-Mein Instructions

Chinese food is such a comfort food for me. I love making this in huge batches and freezing it so on those days where I just want ‘take out’, all I have to do is heat it up in a pan and Voila! I have my Chinese food that I can eat on the floor with my husband.
I love that this is loaded with veggies and flavor.
- You can use tamari or soy sauce if you do not have coconut aminos. I just avoid soy, and coconut aminos tastes just like soy sauce!
- You can use any meat here: beef, turkey, chicken.
- You can also serve this over cauliflower rice or quinoa.
- Serves around two, feel free to double or triple for leftovers.
Dr Jockers Comments:
I used to LOVE Asian stir-fry’s and this healthier version does not disappoint. Ginger and garlic are not only amazing for the immune system but they have such a great aroma and flavor and enhance our digestive tracts.
We avoid the soy sauce as most forms of soy are high in anti-nutrients we want to avoid. Coconut amino’s are the perfect alternative to traditional soy sauce, providing the Asian like flavor without the enzyme inhibitors and phytates common in traditional and organic soy.
This is a fantastic low-carb, nutrient rich stir-fry your whole family will love and enjoy!!
