So I bought this bottle of sauce at Trader Joe’s in hopes of recreating a Thai steak wrap I had at a restaurant not long ago. Well, it wasn’t the right sauce, so I decided to just use it in a stir-fry of sorts.
Then I turned the bottle around and took a peek at the nutrition label….
Do you SEE the sodium content?! Holy crap! My slightly swollen ankles screamed in protest, but I used the sauce anyway. It tasted good, but I didn’t use as much as I would have liked. Lesson learned: look at label before buying, duh.
The finished meal-in-a-bowl contained: brown rice, chicken, stir-fry veggies, “salt sauce,” peanuts, and lots of fresh cilantro. Definitely tasty but did require copious amounts of water during the night!
