Vegetable Lo Mein was the only vegetarian dish my dorm’s cafeteria had other than fruit and cereal, so I got sick of it pretty quick in my college days. It didn’t help that cafeteria food is never very good to begin with even when you don’t have to eat the same thing every day. So, despite my commitment to making healthier versions of just about every meal I can find, it took me a while to come around to making my own version of Vegetable Lo Mein at home… and boy, was I missing out! This is now one of my favorite meals to whip up to get rid of leftover veggies. I mean, it’s good with just about everything! Pineapple? Sure. Spinach? Why not! Peas? You bet (unless you’re on the AIP). It’s one of those meals that’s perfect for a busy weeknight or a lazy weekend or any other time you want something nutritious without having to work too hard for it. Once you cook the spaghetti squash, it really only takes a few minutes to prepare and the sauce is so simple for something so flavorful.
Looking for high-quality meat?
The great nutrition conundrum of our times is how to make a healthy diet sustainable, not just for us and our families, but for future generations. It’s no secret that factory farming has been disastrous for the environment, never mind the welfare of us or our food. So I try to prioritize ethically-harvested, sustainably-raised, grass-fed or pastured proteins. US Wellness Meats not only fits the bill, but they also have a huge variety of other products: Seafood, game meats, jerky, bone broth, sausage, tallow, pork rinds… there’s a lot to love. Free shipping combined with bi-weekly deals from their newsletter can make them more affordable than your local supermarket for meat that’s antibiotic-free, humanely-raised, and really, really good.
