Todays meal was inspired by my Fitfam Juliet. She sent me a picture of a dish that Ayesha Curry made. She asked me to recreate it, I gladly accepted. I decided to recreate the dish and make it #fitfam approved. From replacing the chow mein noodles with 100% whole wheat pasta and baking the plantain instead of frying, Fitfam would be proud   Below is a picture of Ayesha’s Dish.
