Back in the 80s, Stephen Yan put out two videos, Wok on the Wild Side and Wok before you Run. Both had the awesome brown sauce. Corn starch, water, oyster sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce ( which is where all the sodium comes from ) however, none of his dishes on either video were over 300 calories per serving and the Gold Coin Beef is to die for.


I eat Chinese weekly - and since I am diabetic, you know I have to watch what I eat. I don't have any trouble with high blood sugar or weight gain at the Loveland place. The Ft C place was quite the opposite. So come out here. :-)

I decluttered but along with the clutter went my incentive to work on anything. I am still skeining sock yarn.

Exercise? Reduced to mall walking and exercise biking. Good thing I didn't join the runagogo - I'd make everyone look athletic.

I had forced decluttering this weekend, but it's all so nice and clean right now (if not exactly decluttered.).

Chinese food has calories? Noooo.


I so wish you hadn't shared the calorie count on the Chinese food. I KNOW it's not good, but I prefer ignorance.

I'm with you on the Run a Go Go thing and I have started counting the elliptical as regular miles, but not the bike. I am guessing that the one I use is running miles, because I went 1.5 miles in 20 minutes, which is about the rate I run, especially if I were going uphill!

And I've been working on my office, too. We're about in the same place!


PF Chang's is pretty good about having nutritional information available on their website, but for the most part, it is really hard to count calories eating Chinese. It can be an extremely healthy food, but you do have to cook it yourself. And I think the problem with the lovely brown sauce is oil, lots. I'll see if I can dig up a healthier version and email it to you.

He did a cookbook also. I have it ( my daughter had to remind me I had it). I had to go look and see what the name and info was on the cover I have .
Chinese Recipes, Stephan Yan, originally published in 1978, with reprint in 1980 and a spiral bound copy in 1981.
There are 3 copies available on biblio.com here - http://www.biblio.com/search.php?stage=1&dbrowse_author=11109-Y
