Chinese Restaurant Food Called Unhealthy - AOL News

Top News- Chinese Restaurant Food Called Unhealthy - AOL News


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



  1. We do eat Chinese a lot and I try to stick with just a few of my favorite things because I've heard this before somewhere else too.  I like that wonton soup, the crab rangoon, the white rice and the fried rice... but my favorite is always the sweet n sour chicken.

  2. Hello friend. I am helping to make John's one wish come true. For people to give blood. I am asking for your help. Please ask people to give blood and let me know. I do not need names, just numbers. The blood count is in the About Me. Help me reach 300 and beyond! Tell everyone. For John. Thanks friend. Tammy

  3. So, you eat it once a month, who cares!  Or cook some of your own at home, like I do.  I make my own sweet & sour pork or chicken, a few veggies and my own fried rice.  -  Barbara

  4. Don't you just hate that???  Dang... We have it about 2 times a month... occasionally more... but I guess we will try to stay at that... dang.

    be well,
