Are you a fan of asian food, espeically Chinese? I know I am. Did you know that Asian food is the healthiest and most delicous food in the world? Have you ever notice how thin Asians are?
The reason is, that the Asian food you buy has been Americanized. You don't ever see them in the back easting what they sell us. They are always eating white rice and soup. Always something healthy. Why are they eating healthy and just fattening us Americans?
Well, here is how you can still enjoy your Asian food, but make healthier choices:
The best rule of thumb is to choose a dish that isn't breaded and deep-fried (goodbye egg rolls!). Avoid rice and noodles and steer clear of sugary sauces like sweet and sour. Opt for kung pao chicken (go light on the peanuts), beef and broccoli dishes, shrimp and snow peas, garlic chicken, Mongolian beef steak, or dishes that have meat and a vegetable. Ask for the chef to go easy on the oil.
Any of the satay dishes (chicken, shrimp, beef, or tofu), any protein or vegetable stir-fry, steamed fish, chicken or beef lettuce rolls are delicious and nutritious! Avoid fatty coconut milk curries, noodles, and rice.
Best bets include chicken, lamb, beef, or shrimp tikka (grilled marinated meat skewers); any of the veggie dishes such as bhagan bharta (whipped eggplant), saag paneer (spinach with cheese), aloo gobi (marinated steamed cauliflower), vegetable jalfrezi (mixed vegetables). Avoid curries, rice, and naan bread.
