MY OTHER RECIPES


It’s not fair to be posting any kind of meal prep recipes right now.

As I’ve been eating all sorts of fried street food.

Like these churros with soft serve ice cream.

Or these egg breads by the dozen.

Or a 32 cm soft serve ice cream cone.

But the minute I touch down in LA, I’ll be on a mission with these boxes.

Its my favorite lo mein recipe made a little bit skinnier, loaded with even more veggies. And the noodles are swapped out for whole wheat spaghetti.

Of course you can use your noodles of choice.

But you might as well cut down on the calories where you can.

I promise.

You won’t taste a difference!

If you do, I’ll hand deliver one of those churro thingies.
