It can certainly be tempting to go for that drawer full of takeout menus every time we’re craving some lo mein or fried rice. Yes, ordering local Chinese takeout is great in a pinch, but making it homemade is even better! When you make Asian inspired dishes in the comfort of your own home, you can make sure they’re tasty as well as healthy! For example, soy sauce, a main ingredient in this cuisine, is very high in sodium. By purchasing low sodium sauce or by limiting the amount you use, you have already made the dish healthier! Plus, it’s fun to put your own spin on your cooking. Get inspired by the wonders of Asian cuisine!
