Nutrition Q & A
What are the Best Bets on a Chinese Restaurant Menu?
There are plenty of healthy options at Chinese restaurants. It's important to stick with dishes that are heavy on the vegetables and include lean protein such as chicken, tofu or shrimp. Soups, such as wonton or hot-and-sour, are healthy and filling.
Fried and breaded dishes are higher in fat and calories than dishes that are steamed or stir-fried with only a little oil. It's okay to request that the chef go light on the sauce or add extra vegetables.
