Notes

Lean & Mein

Everyone loves lo mein. How can you not? It's basically Asian "spaghetti" packed with all kinds of deliciousness. But who on Earth wants to deal with the horrendous calorie and fat counts of regular old lo mein? CRAZY PEOPLE, that's who. Don't be crazy -- or LAZY. Head to the kitchen and whip up some of HG's So Low Mein w/Chicken. BTW, this recipe also rocks with soy "chicken" strips, lean beef, pork tenderloin, shrimp, and tofu. Wok on, people!
