Have you ever watched the Big Bang Theory? Then you might have noticed that the characters in the show used to order Chinese food the most. And to be honest, it looked goood! Chinese food is a popular takeaway option and is also considered healthy as it involves a lot of vegetables, fresh meat and sauces in its preparation. Plus, there are a lot of vegan options in Chinese food that are worth a try. 

If you’re tempted for an authentic Chinese meal while following a diet, you’re in for a treat since many Chinese food options allow you to stay healthy and fit without giving up on good food. Here are a few recipes that you can try or order from your nearby restaurant to relish. 

Steamed Dumplings

The most staple food in Chinese cuisine is also the most nutritious and versatile. You can prepare it with flour and sneak in some cabbage or any other veggie, meat or tofu. Just be sure to have them steamed and not fried. Dip them in chilli sauce instead of soy, and you’ll cut back on sodium, too. A healthy and yummy meal. 

Beef and Broccoli

Your mom may have hinted that you should be eating your broccoli and she would have been right. Broccoli is a superfood and one that can easily be found in most Chinese restaurants, which often include it as a menu item. Combine beef with broccoli and experience the magic of great taste and nutritious benefits. 

Kung Pao Chicken

If you like healthy food with a spicy twist, then Kung Pao Chicken is your best bet.  This dish is prepared with mixed chilli peppers, diced chicken and veggies. Peanuts also give the dish a nutrient boost. They have heart-healthy fibre, unsaturated fat, and antioxidants. But, like many Chinese dishes, this one’s high in sodium, so watch how much you have the rest of the day.

Tofu and veggies stir fry

Most Chinese restaurants have an entire section on the menu devoted to vegetarian meals and this is one dish which is equally upvoted by foodies and dieticians. If possible, try steamed or boiled tofu instead of fried tofu to avoid fats and unhealthy oils. You can put any vegetable in this recipe that you like. Green veggies in this meal support immune health, and heart health and work to keep blood sugar levels steady. Round out your meal with miso soup or a salad. Try to cut back on sodium by consuming less soy sauce.

Moo Goo Gai Pan

Moo Goo Gai Pan is prepared with chicken, mushrooms and lots of green vegetables with light sauce. Since there are a lot of vegetables to keep you full you don’t need any other dish with this delicacy. There are a lot of flavours of chicken and veggies and it is not as high in sugars and fats as many other dishes.
