This article made me very depressed because I LOVEEEEEE Chinese Food!! Especially noodles, seamed dumplings, crab rangoon, and seafood..mmmm sweat and sour.... all things said to be very bad in this article! awwww Now I am hungggggggrry for it and can't have any. Don't you hate it when that happens. NOT FAIR!
The culprit in making it so bad is high in calories and sodium. An order of dumplings alone (mmmmm yummy) is 500 calories.. I could eat my daily recommended intake of 2,000 calories in one sitting! Dang! It recommends ofcourse eating the brown rice instead of the 200 a cup white (I don't ever remember seeing brown rice at any buffet I have been too). And the article says veggies aren't safe because the sauces are high in sodium. OIY! Guess it is a good thing I hardly use salt in my daily cooking and eating (Josh constantly complains about my fear of using salt and spices and calls my food bland) but it seems I am not going to be able to take my mom out to Chinese with a good conscious.. it could kill her from the sodium alone! I knew the fried food was bad and I mostly stay away from them.. I prefer shrimp that is not battered and have it mixed in with low-mein noodles, drenched in sweet n sour. (my tummy is starting to rumble).
Guess it's a good thing I only get to have it maybe once a month.. twice if we are having a good month. Any one want to take me out for some today??? Or at least have a plate of dumplings delivered??? LOL
