Who else loves American Chinese food? .
The problem is that it is not made to be a balanced meal, it’s meant to be delicious, meaning that you aren’t getting many nutrients out of your meal.
How do you make American Chinese heathy? .
Keep the protein, eat a 1/4 of the amount of rice or carb they give you and ask for extra vegetables. Or make your own!
I love to turn leftover vegetables into stir fry! I always keep on hand garlic, ginger, soy, lime, sesame oil and cilantro. So cook up some rice or quinoa, place in bowl. In super hot pan throw in your cut vegetables and add a bit of sesame oil(it can overpower if you use to much) and cook for 3 minutes. Take off heat and add some chopped ginger and garlic, give it a quick toss, and then add a dash of soy, (or coconut aminos) squeeze of lime and some chopped cilantro. Immediately dump into your bowl of rice and season with a bit of salt. .
