Best Choice: Kung Pao Chicken
Large portion sizes and high sodium content are two things you may expect from fast food Chinese restaurants. The good news is that Chinese food can be healthful and delicious. Many Chinese dishes are packed with vegetables like broccoli, carrots, and bell peppers so opt for meals featuring these veggies, lean meat, and a small amount of sauce. Make sure to stay away from anything fried—you know the terms, crispy, battered, twice-cooked. Manchu Wok Kung Pao Chicken has 180 calories per serving and is low in saturated fat. Skip the rice and noodles and pair with mixed vegetables for a boost of fiber.
