Helpful hints

  • Linguine or fettuccine can be used instead of lo mein noodles. The nutrient composition is very similar.
  • Replace chicken with thin slices of beef for variety.
  • Use leftover grilled chicken or beef from a cookout the day before. In step #3, reduce cooking time to 1 to 2 minutes.

I have been trying to find low mein noodles and have no luck can you get info on nutrient for low mein noodles and where to buy. Dietitian comment: Look for lo mein noodles, also known as chow mein or Chinese wheat noodles, at your local Asian store or in the international foods section of a large supermarket. The nutrient content is very similar to spaghetti or fettuccine pasta or egg noodles.
