Ethnic Food Dining
The new National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Obesity Guidelines recommend trying different ethnic cuisines to give yourself a taste treat while counting calories and fat. Many ethnic cuisines offer lots of low fat, low calorie choices.

So if you want to eat healthy and still have lots of different choices, take a taste adventure with ethnic foods. Here's a sample of healthy food choices (lower in calories and fat) and terms to look for when making your selection:

Chinese
Steamed
Jum (poached)
Kow (roasted)
Shu (barbecued)
Steamed rice
Dishes without MSG added
 
Italian
Red sauces
Primavera (no cream)
Piccata (lemon)
Sun-dried tomatoes
Crushed tomatoes
Lightly sauteed
Grilled
 
Mexican
Spicy chicken
Rice & black beans
Salsa or picante
Soft corn tortillas
