Thumbs Up: Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (pictured)
P.F. Chang’s Happy Hour menu is packed with no-guilt nibbles—if you choose wisely. For the best of the best, go with the Steamed Shrimp Dumplings. Each little plateful packs 9 grams of protein for a skinny 110 calories. Even the dipping sauce is guilt free with only 20 calories. With just 130 calories and 6 grams of heart-friendly vegetable protein, the edamame dumplings are a close second.
Thumbs Down: Crispy Green Beans
The word “crispy” is a dead giveaway that this is a good dish gone bad. Innocent green beans go downhill quickly when they’re slathered in batter and deep fried. The result: a jaw-dropping 895 calories and 70 grams of fat per plateful. And that’s not even including the additional 310 calories and 33 fat grams you’ll get from the dipping sauce. A better bet: the 380-calorie edamame which supplies a filling 15 grams of fiber and 30 grams of protein.
