singapore mei fun

Everyone loves a curried noodle dish. And like the name suggests, it’s kind of fun finding different food in every bite – chicken, shrimp, onion, veggies, etc…Try this healthy version over take-out menu offerings which can be high in sodium, oils (&/or the wrong oils) or other unhealthy ingredients.

I prefer using brown rice skinny noodles because I always go brown over white for my carbs as they are higher in nutrients, are digested easier and don’t affect insulin levels as white carbs often do. You can find these in health food stores, or check the health section in your grocery store (my local bulk barn has a health section and sells them).

It’s a recipe that looks like you fussed a lot in the kitchen but it’s ready in no time at all. Yay, to that.
