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'm confused.. Soy is OK to use? Seems like when I use it I swell. Stage 3 CKD. Dietitian comment: Yes a small amount of reduced sodium soy sauce is acceptable. Pay attention to the total amount of sodium per portion and carefully measure the soy sauce. You can omit it from the recipe.

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.
