Low-Carb Chinese New Year

By January 31, 2014

Follow me on:

low-carbIt's Chinese New Year, and I love Chinese food! Unfortunately, a lot of it has a fair amount of sugar and/or starch. Did you know that the Hoisin sauce and plum sauce you can buy in the store can be up to 19 grams of carb for 2 tablespoons? Yikes! That's almost 5 teaspoons of sugar! But we can celebrate Chinese New Year in a low-carb way. For example, try my recipe for Moo Shu Chicken with Sugar-Free Plum Sauce.
