‘We love Mexican and Chinese takeaways. Smartest picks?’
Solution: On Chinese
night, order steamed dishes (prawns or chicken with broccoli, or tofu and brinjal) minus the sauce. Then get spicy green beans or sautéed spinach with garlic and mix the orders together, cutting your intake of sugary and sodiumfilled sauce roughly in half while doubling the vegetables. For a Mexican feast, ask for flour tortillas stuffed with grilled prawns, chicken, fish or steak and loads of vegetables. Avoid fried items, like quesadillas, tostadas, gorditas and taquitos. Skip rice too, but go for the frijoles and as many types of salsa as your heart desires. Top with 1 (heaped) tbsp each of guacamole and cheese for a filling, mostly plant-based meal.
