Isn't it amazing when you substitute a healthier option for a particular food and find that you like the healthier option better! In September, I was traveling and had to pick up Chinese food for some family late at night. I was actually planning on picking up some Wendy's chili on the way home because I didn't want to eat the unhealthy Chinese food that we'd ordered. Then, I happened to glance at the top of the menu, and saw a section on steamed entrees! I got an order of steamed shrimp with broccoli with stir-fry sauce on the side. I brought it home and had it with the steamed rice, and it tasted great!
It just makes me think about all those times that I ordered greasy, artery-clogging General Tso's chicken! I would have loved this healthy steamed shrimp just as much! They say the don't even eat that General Tso's stuff in China, and that meals there are much lighter and healthier than many battered/fried/heavily sauced American versions.
The steamed shrimp and broccoli with rice and a small amount of stir-fry sauce was delicious! Best of all, I felt great after eating it, too! This really makes you think about all the healthy delicious choices that are out there and how you don't have to be deprived when you make healthy choices.
