When eating Chinese foods…

  • Start with a soup such as the wonton or hot-and-sour soup.
  • Ask the cook to use less oil, salt, and soy sauce.
  • Eat it family style! And then pack up the left overs.
  • Portion size in Chinese restaurants usually are huge.
  • Skip the fried wonton or crab rangoon. Try the steamed potstickers instead.
  • Eat steamed rice instead of fried rice.
  • Eat the chicken, not the duck.
  • Add lots of vegetables.
