You can further modify this recipe to lower its sodium or eliminate carbs based on your own dietary needs.
Some variations I have tried and liked are: add mushrooms and Zucchini noodles
No Chinese Five Spice? Thats okay add in a little Allspice and Ginger and this still tastes amazing.
We typically use pork in this recipe, however, we have mixed ground pork and ground turkey. Ground chicken, shrimp, or tofu would also be a good main ingredient in this recipe. 
We also like to add a little bit of extra shredded cabbage that is less wilted to give it more crunch.
We garnish with green onion (optional)
Make a mason jar salad with Asian dressing, zoodles, and leftover egg roll stir fry!
