    I hate the fact they pack mushrooms, bean sprouts and stuff in plastic it just sweats and does not last long. bring back paper bags! I always do the same with my mushrooms after opening I put them back into the container lined with paper kitchen towel and they last for ages. Even if they dry up they can still be used :)

    Hello. Im curious how it is tha tyou believe this is low carb? Im being a jerk Im just concerned. The veggies used are higher in carbs for hte most part as is the sweet chili sauce (not sure about oyster sauce) and orange juice? i stay away from these things due to the higher sugar carb content. what do you think? Id like your opinion. the dish does look delicious but not one i would use on a Ketogenic diet (high fat, moderate protein .. veyr low carb) thanks

    Your stir fry looks absolutely scrumptious. However, watch the hidden sugars in that sauce especially if your weight loss starts to stall. I'm glad you are on a weight loss journey for health — keep up the good work.

    Thank you for this post! I have been struggling to lose weight and actually keep it off. Carbs were my biggest problem. This looks absolutely amazing. I don't think I will miss the rice with this meal at all. I will be making this within the next few days. I could almost smell it through computer haha.

    It looks good but the title is very misleading. This is not a low carb recipe. Orange juice has ALOT of natural sugar, oyster sauce, sweet chili sauce and cornstarch has sugar and unnecessary carbs

    Carrots are high in carbs, and so is orange juice. There might be a way to lower the carbs by using some orange flavoring/water and an acceptable sweetener, and maybe thicken with xanthan gum since cornstarch has more carbs.

    The sweet chill sauce has about 6.5 carbs in a tablespoon, and the orange juice will be about 13, so right there you have almost 20 grams of carb.

    Half a cup of carrots adds another 4 net carbs. The snow peas are not too bad, but they do add another 5 carbs for half a cup. So now you are up to at least 30 carbs – probably a little more because all of the veggies will have some carbs.

    If a person ate half of what you prepared, that is at least a 15=20 carb meal (more if counting all carbs and not just Net Carbs). For someone like me who limits carbs to 20 per day, that would be way too many for one meal. But compared to how most people eat it is definitely a lower carb meal and a good way for someone to eat healthier.

    Congrats on your weight loss and with keeping your blood sugars normal – good for you! I will probably try making this but eliminate the oj, and the higher carb veggies.
