Which Chinese Food Is Low In Calories?
- Gary Woods
What to get to eat: – Options such as steamed, broiled, or roasted chicken, beef, pig, or shrimp are all delicious and provide less calories. The menu includes Chow Mein, Chop Suey, Moo Goo Gai Pan, and steamed vegetables, of course. Anything that is classified as crispy, coated, marinated, twice-cooked, or battered is likely to include a greater number of calories and more fat.
Some dining establishments even provide a “light” menu that consists of steamed chicken, shrimp, or fish accompanied by steamed veggies. This is always the safest and most reliable option. Sides and Desserts It’s almost impossible to picture eating a Chinese dinner that doesn’t come with some form of rice.
However, because rice orders are often rather big, it is imperative that you pay careful attention to the quantity of rice that you consume.
|Fried rice (1 cup)||235-370 calories|
|White rice (1 cup)||150 calories|
|Fortune Cookie||25 calories|
