    1. In a medium bowl, season the pork with 1 Tbsp coconut aminos and 2 tsp sesame oil. Mix well and set it aside.
    2. Prepare the 4 garlic cloves and 0.3 oz ginger in one bowl. 2 scallions in another bowl and 14 oz rinsed noodles on a plate. Preheat a wok or large saute pan over medium-low heat until it feels too hot to place your palm near the surface. Boil a pot of water to blanch the bok choy vegetables.
    3. Add the 1 1/2 Tbsp avocado oil to the wok and fry the pork over medium-high heat. Season with 2 pinches of salt. Break it to fine bits and cook until the pork is browned and turns into crisp crumbles, about 3-4 minutes.
