I love Chinese takeout because it's the easiest takeout for me to fit into a healthy diet.
Every Chinese takeout restaurant I've ever been to has a portion of the menu for plain steamed protein + vegetables with sauce on the side. They are cooked without sugar, salt, etc. If you don't see it, you can ask - they can prepare any protein and vegetable combination plain. You can either drizzle a small amount of sauce on your food, or just eat it as is.
For the past fifteen years, the plain steamed chicken with broccoli has been my favorite go-to dish. 2 cups is about 140 calories! I eat about one cup, use a T of sauce. Sometimes I eat 1/2 cup of rice, and sometimes I just skip it all together.
