LOW CALORIE TAKEAWAY
Are you craving some delicious, greasy, calorie-laden takeout but don’t want to undo all of your hard work at the gym? Look no further, my friends, for I have scoured the earth (or at least the internet) to bring you the ultimate guide to low-calorie takeout options.
First up on our list is the classic Chinese takeout dish, General Tso’s chicken. But wait, don’t run to your nearest Chinese restaurant just yet. Instead, try making this dish at home using lean protein, such as chicken breast or tofu, and swap out the traditional deep-frying method for baking or stir-frying. And let’s be real, the real star of the dish is the sauce anyway, so go easy on that and you’ll be good to go.
Next up is pizza. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But, how can pizza possibly be a low-calorie option?” Well, hear me out. Opt for a thin crust, load up on veggies, and go easy on the cheese. And if you’re feeling really daring, try a cauliflower crust for even fewer calories. You can thank me later.
Moving on to another classic takeout option, we have burgers. Now, I know that a traditional burger with a beef patty, cheese, and all the fixings can be a calorie bomb. But, you can opt for a turkey or veggie burger, and go easy on the cheese and special sauce. Or, if you’re feeling really fancy, try a lettuce wrap instead of a bun. It may not be a traditional burger, but it’s a delicious and low-calorie option.
And last but not least, we have sushi. Now, sushi can be a great low-calorie option as long as you’re mindful of your choices. Opt for sashimi instead of rolls, and go easy on the soy sauce and tempura. And if you’re feeling really adventurous, try some of the more unusual options like sea urchin or octopus. They may not be for everyone, but they’re definitely low in calories.
So there you have it, folks. Just because you’re trying to watch your calorie intake doesn’t mean you have to give up takeout entirely. With a little creativity and mindfulness, you can enjoy all of your favorite takeout dishes without derailing your diet. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to go make myself a low-calorie General Tso’s chicken stir-fry.
