Lo Mein Meal Prep

Save time, money and calories when you prep for the entire week! Made SKINNY with whole wheat spaghetti and chockfull of veggies!

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.

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.

You won’t taste a difference!

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

All your recipes are excellent. Is there any way to get the nutritional values? I am on we weight watchers and would love to be able to calculate the smart ponts values. Thanks so much!

Nutritional information is provided only for select and new recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, I recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”) to obtain such information. Hope that helps!

You can drop the link to this post in my fitness pal and it will do all the calculations for you. This is what I got, keep in mind it may not be 100% accurate:

Thanks , I always need to check the sodium content. I think I will make this on Sunday. It looks fantastic !
Where can I find a link to fitness pal. Is that an app that I can download to my phone ?

There is a function on the WW tracking page in the top right corner called “CREATE” and under that select “RECIPE” and it lets you add ingredients and choose number of servings and it calculates the points for you.

If you have the my fitness pal app theres a section where u can download recipes from the internet and it will calculat the calories and all the nutrional info

You can also use the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website. Type in the recipe, and it will give you the Smart Points per serving.

I usually wind up using ground ginger from a jar.
Haven’t mastered grating the ginger.
How to do this; also and storing of ginger.
Thanks
You have wonderful recipes! Thank you so much for sharing.

You can grate ginger by using a paring knife to cut the skin off. Then using a zester, simply grate the ginger. You can store any leftover grated ginger.

I store my leftover ginger in a Ziploc bag in the freezer.

Peel ginger with a teaspoon (try it!!) and then grate or chop finely. Leftover ginger with lemon and honey makes a great tea!

Thank you! you have defiantly inspired me to involve more meal prepping in my life. Especially due to the fact that I am a student (:

OMG super amazing recipe! I love it!

do you eat this as a cold dish?

I personally prefer to eat when warm.

Can you use olive oil in place of sesame or another type I may already have on hand?

Bear in mind that sesame oil adds to the asian flavour of the dish, and olive oil doesn’t 🙂

This looks amazing! I love all the veggies! I am definitely meal prepping this soon!

I don’t have fresh ginger on hand- how much ground ginger can I substitute?

The ratio for dry to fresh spices is typically 1:3. Hope that helps!

Can I freeze this meal?

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

You have me kind of confused here, saying you never freeze these.
Do you have a large family, or eat the same thing every night?
Why the special containers if you don’t freeze it?

The special containers are used for meal prep. This is not meant to be frozen but consumed throughout the week. You prep your meals for the week ahead to save time and money. 🙂

Which is great especially if you have kids!
