The holidays are over and many of us have vowed to eat healthier foods in 2020. To that end, we decided to start off the year with a nutritious recipe for stir-fried vegetables and noodles from Pita Jungle.

Another plus for this recipe: If you’re concerned about your carb intake, shirataki noodles (traditional Japanese noodles made from konjac yams) are very low in digestible carbohydrates as well as calories.

If you’d like to give the dish a try, you can find the veggie noodle stir fry on Pita Jungle’s Seasonal Kitchen Crafts menu through March. In the restaurant, they make the stir fry with bone broth, so if you eat a plant-based diet, make sure to ask for the vegetarian version. Happy New Year!
