Recipe by ChefChanteuse
I'm following the P90X diet and exercise program, but I really miss Chinese food! The stuff at the restaurants is absolutely loaded with grease and misses out on the delicious flavor of lots of vegetables. This is actually Sue Lau's Chinese Fried Rice recipe (type 38748 in the search bar above for the original. Thanks, Sue!), altered just a little for extra protein and less fat. One serving, according to the P90X nutrition plan, is 1 vegetable, 0.75 fat, 1 protein, and 1 carbohydrate. Enjoy!
