Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURE -

To en­joy sushi the light way, stick to salmon–av­o­cado rolls and sim­ple bite-size ni­giri that are free of fancy top­pings. Al­ter­na­tively, or­der Viet­namese rice-pa­per rolls, which are usu­ally full of veg­eta­bles. Viet­namese sal­ads are also burst­ing with healthy ginger, lime, lemon­grass and co­rian­der.

When you feel like a stir-fry, opt for a small amount of steamed rice or noo­dles (avoid­ing the fried va­ri­ety) and fill the rest of your plate with lean meat or tofu and lots of veg­eta­bles. Poached fish is also a healthy choice, es­pe­cially if you ask for sauces on the side.

Or­der­ing a health­ier Asian soup is sim­ple: To cut the fat, swap creamy blends for clear flavour-rich mix­tures, such as Viet­namese pho, Thai tom yum or Chi­nese hot­pot.
