I took my own sea salt, and a pre-made container of vinegar, soy, chinese five spice as my "sauce".

All chinese places offer white meat chicken, shrimp, scallops, pork, beef and have steamed broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, bok choy, leek, bean sprouts, asparagus. Just look for what sounds good. They will usually make or accomodate any changes and prepare it steamed. Just be sure to watch for the hidden starches in sauces, msg and seasonings. It is the main reason I go steamed and sauce free.
Thanks Carla! I didn't get your post until now...after my Chinese lunch. I will definitely use your ideas the next time! I had the Chicken Egg Foo Young. I know I could have done better, but that's okay. I'm not beating myself up over it
