I'm trying to get back on Dr. F's plan. I love Chinese food. I know it is high in sodium but are there any good choices? This week I've eaten the mixed vegetables with white rice. I figured the white rice was better than fried. I know, I should skip the rice altogether. Just wanting suggestions that allows me some Chinese. Maybe once or twice a week??. Thanks!
We went to PF Chang for a birthday dinner Wednesday. I could not detect the excess salt. But there was so much it spiked my blood pressure, I could hardly sleep, and had to take a day off work because I was too tired to function the next day.
Skip the Chinese, since so much is salty or fried.
Steamed or baked dishes are OK. Be very careful of the sauces. Tell the waitress you need to adhere to a very low salt diet.
There's no PF Chang's here. Just your ordinary run of the mill Chinese. I think the choices are fried rice or white rice. I'm going to ask for steamed veggies with no sauce. We'll see if that satisfies my hankering.
