Love Chinese Food? In a hurry and doing take out? You still can but choose healthy alternatives. Instead of the Sweet & Sours or fried rice's, choose the chicken, stir-fried and steamed rice's.
Stir-fried tofu with veggies and steamed rice; almond chicken (Yum); grilled shrimp with soba noodles are all around 350-375 calorie dishes. A lot easier to swallow (pun intended) than that 1482 Sweet & Sour Pork with fried rice!
