  • Sounds delicious. Everything you order will probably Max your sodium for the day or week. Get what you like.

  • I want Chinese food too. With a side of taco bell and a big Soda.

    I had chicken and dumplings.

  • My favorite is beef broccoli with steamed rice, but for another idea mushroom chicken and almond chicken are both good choices.

  • ive been being sooo good all week, i want a reward! i just dont want to totally undo all my progress thus far. i looked at the menu & they have diet options, steamed veggies with steamed shrimp, chicken or beef. but that just doesnt sound good :( i can make that myself here! lol

  • I was going to say that Chinese food is way better when you cook it yourself and control what goes in it. But you aren't cooking so get what you want. You can always eat half now and half later if. You are worried.

  • I like mixed vegetable delight with tofu. But I blow up from the salt & get a major headache :(

  • Triple Delight - lots of veggies, usually a seafood or chicken combo and has a light sauce

    Singapore Noodles - a curried stir-fried noodle dish with combo or your choice of meat/seafood. It's regularly spicy but you can ask them for non-spicy or whatever strength of spice you prefer. It's addictive!

    Cashew or Sichuan Chicken - lots of veggies and a medium brown sauce

    Thai food delivery is also a great alternative - pad thai, thai iced tea, green curry chicken, masaman curry rocks. (You can make this easily at home with store bought curry base, too.)
