Skip the Asian buffets featuring fatty, salty entrees and dine on P.F. Chang’s Buddha’s Feast Steamed Lunch with Rice. Jam packed with veggies, this vegetarian bowl sports only 440 calories, a skinny 3.5 grams of fat, no saturated fat, and only 160 milligrams of sodium per serving. Swap the white rice for brown and pick up 3 grams of stomach-filling fiber.
