Simple Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

Soft thick noodles soaked in a beautiful rich fragrant sauce… mmmmm.. dinner anyone?
I’m mildly stir fry obsessed. Well, a lot mildly obsessed. With stir fry’s. There’s something so warm and humbling about a home cooked meal that takes only minutes to prepare and seconds to polish off and lick the plate and the spoon and even the sauce that’s dripped onto the table. Ahem. No, we don’t do that around herrr… Ah-em. Sorry. Just clearing my throat.

This family, I swear, we were meant to be from Asia. Or living in Asia. Or maybe we have asian bloodlines somewhere hidden in the depths of the complicated latino/european blood running through our veins.Once upon a time in a land not so far away lived a family whom loved stir fry’s of all tastes and sizes. That would be us. I mean, who duzzent love stir fry’s?

Low carb; full of carbs; high protein; low fat or high in fat, whichever way you turn, they’re so versatile you can adjust them to suit whoever you’re cooking for…even the most complicated of souls — like my family.

You see that mystery hand holding the noodles with the chopsticks? Well, I’d like to thank Paul for modelling for me today. Because I have no hope in holding noodles with chopsticks. Holding anything with chopsticks is not my thing. I can’t. It’s a health and safety issue. I can poke someones eye out with a flying piece of chicken.Rushing home from school pick-ups, doctor appointments and pouring with rain outside, there was no time to even think. Just chop, throw, fry, and pray for the best in between showers and running back and forth making sure the kids were really having their showers and not just taking part in an invisible Karaoke show under the warm running water. Lucky for them, they weren’t.

I love the colours. I love the flavours. I love the quick meal-in-minutes. I love stir fry’s. Oh wait, did I already say that?Steaming stir fry with the dizzying aromas of soy and oyster sauce streaming through the house making us even more hungry than we already were to begin with.And the corn spears. Am I the only one who loves them? I could sit and eat a whole tray of them, all on my own, because no sharing. Not with corn. Or chocolate. Or brownies. Oh…brownies. Pan or wok. Same thing. I’ve tried all sort of pans, pots, woks, even really large soup pots. They’re awesome just FYI. Probably not meant to say that, but if you’re cooking for what seems like an army, and you tend to get sauce and noodles thrown all over the place (like me), big soup pots are the bomb. But ssssh. Don’t tell anyone I said that. Oh hay Paul. How’s it hanging? Nice and professional looking with those chopsticks. And this is really the reason I fell in love with him. The man can hold some mean looking chopsticks.

2. Instant noodles are not really good for weight loss.

Even though some instant noodles have few calories per serving, they are very low in dietary fiber and proteins, which are essential for any weight loss diet. However, you can eat noodles or ramen to lose weight, if you diet carefully with the help of a nutritionist.

3. Some instant noodles provide essential nutrients. 

There are some health benefits of instant noodles, which is due to the essential nutrients it provides to the body.  Different brands of instant noodles contain different nutrients. Some brands fortify they instant noodles with manganese and Vitamin B complex vitamins, like riboflavin and thiamine. In fact, a 2011 study of more than 6000 instant noodle consumers showed that they had a had a 31% greater intake of thiamine and a 16% higher intake of riboflavin than those who did not consume instant noodles.

4. Instant noodles are very high in sodium.

This is one major health issue regarding the consumption of instant noodles. The average sodium content in meal of noodles is about 1700 mg. That is very close the recommended average daily intake of sodium (2300 mg). What could the high sodium content in noodles lead to? It could increase the risks of hypertension and even kidney failure. People who are said to be salt-sensitive are especially at risk.

5. Instant noodles takes hours before being digested. 

Dr. Braden Kuo, a director of the gastrointestinal motility laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital at Harvard University, conducted a study to test the digestion of ramen noodles. He made use of a tiny camera to study the breakdown of instant ramen noodles in the stomach. The results, unbelievable! The noodles were found to be intact after two hours of being consumed. This can be very harmful because it stresses the digestive system to break down such processed food.

6. They contain MSG. 

Like I mentioned earlier, most noodles are made with a common ingredient called  monosodium glutamate (MSG). It is an additive used to provide flavor to processed food. The FDA recognizes MSG as safe for consumption. However, some research on MSG, has linked it’s consumption to weight gain nausea, high blood pressure, headaches and negative effects on brain health. Well, some contrary studies have shown that all these symptoms may not occur if they are consumed moderately. Nevertheless, some people are sensitive to MSG, this condition is known as he MSG symptom complex. If you have it, you are to avoid foods containing MSG. People with MSG symptom complex usually have headaches, numbness and nausea after eating noodles.

7. Instant noodles increase the risk of metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that could lead to increased risk of heart diseases, stroke and diabetes. In 2014, a study conducted in South Korea, among women who consumed instant noodles found out that women who consume instant noodles twice or more a week were found to be more likely to have metabolic syndrome.
