Bangkok Curry (small bowl) plus Tofu

Chock-full of all kinds of colorful veggies, rice noodles, and a splash of coconut milk, this little Thai-style curry from Noodles & Company is tasty. But with just 4 grams of protein per bowl, it helps to add a side of tofu. Ditto for the tasty Indonesian Peanut Sate. At 9 grams of protein per small bowl, it’s right under our goal of at least 10 grams. Why not swing for the larger bowl? The protein doubles to 18 grams but the sodium goes from 930 milligrams to 2,030, or slightly more than 3/4 teaspoon of salt.
Stats: 420 calories, 6g saturated fat, 740mg sodium, 20g protein
