First Time Mom and Losing It: Low Carb Chicken Lo Mein Made Easy with Slice-A-Roo

Low Carb Chicken Lo Mein Made Easy with Slice-A-Roo

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


I love chicken lo mein and used to always order it when I had Chinese take out. I made a healthier version by making it myself and using high fiber whole-wheat noodles. While it was good and lower in calories it still had tons of carbs.

When I am on the Dr. Oz Rapid Weight Loss Plan I substitute zucchini for pasta noodles. If you read my posts before for the Zucchini "Pasta" Veggie "Pesto" Bowl Recipe you saw all the steps I had to go through to get fettuccine like noddles. It took about 3 steps that made noodles that were all different sizes.

Things got easier when I got to try the Slice-A-Roo. It is an awesome slicing machine that allows you to curl, slice and shred vegetables and fruits like apples. It is super easy to use and interchange the blades.


It even has a little storage compartment for the extra blades.


First I peeled the zucchini then I used the curl blade to make my zucchini noodles.



I used the slice blade to make fun thin curls out of apples for my daughter. She loved it so much that she ate the whole sliced apple. I usually get her to eat only a couple bites of apple when I just cut them into wedges.

  1. Thank you for the recipe. I had a chance to recently review this slicer and can't wait to try out your recipe. We have been having fun making homemade potato chips and curly fries. And, the girls are also loving zucchini -- shh, don't tell them, as they think they are eating something else. :-)
