Lo Mein Stir Fry

Lo Mein Stir Fry

This Lo Mein Stir Fry looks waaay too good to be true. But luckily for us, it is true!

Good looking food is an important factor to me. It may be due to the fact that I’m a bit of a perfectionist, or it might be because I like things to look pretty. It might also be that I’m a little bit weird. But one thing I do know for certain is that if my food looks good, I’m 10 times more likely to want to eat it. Now, this of course doesn’t apply for some foods that may look pretty bland or gross, but taste incredible. Thankfully, this stir fry looks a bit like a rainbow in a bowl, making it Instagram worthy! 

I might also mention that this bright and colourful meal is great for kids – rainbows and colours are a parent’s best friend at meal time! So, let’s take a closer look.

Cooking lunch or dinner doesn’t get any easier than this. All you will need is 11 ingredients and 15 minutes. To top it off, clean up is a breeze as you will only require a small bowl, a skillet, and some cooking utensils. See, easy as! 

To start this stir fry off we have a range of delicious vegetables including bok choy, broccoli, carrot, and red bell pepper. From these we receive a great source of protein, fibre, potassium, vitamin E, iron, calcium, vitamin C, and folate. 

We top it off with some ramen noodles and sesame seeds which gives us a good dose of carbohydrates, copper, and manganese. 

All of these great vitamins and minerals are essential for our day to day function and overall health, so why wouldn’t you want to eat this bowl of goodness? 

The Lo Mein Stir Fry is the perfect meal for lunch and/or dinner because it’s: 

  • Super easy to make! 
  • Travel friendly – take it to work for lunch.
  • Family friendly.
  • A good source of protein – 22g per serve. 
  • Packed with a colourful array of nutritious vegetables. 

To store any uneaten food, simply place your food into an airtight container and pop it in the fridge for up to 48 hours.
