Vietnamese Food...Yay or Nay?


Quote  |  Reply

Does anyone have any idea how many calories are in Vietnamese food?  I had grilled chicken over rice noodles today...lots of veggies (cukes, bean sprouts, lettuce, carrots, etc) and rice noodles.  The sauce/dressing seemed pretty light.  Mostly vinegar but I saw a few little droplets of oil.  I tried logging each discernible ingredient by itself, but I have no idea if it was a good choice or not.

I would log it separately too.  Vietnamese food is always a good choice.  Laughing

Yeah, I'd agree that generally Vietnamese is good.  I always go for the Vegetarian Pho and it's fairly low cal, and ssooooo good!

the sauces used in vietnamese cooking may seem 'light', but trust me, they are not low cal.

and they're LOADED with sodium.

I don't eat anything with "sauces", pho is broth-based.

Mmmmm pho..  A little place down the street from me does a mean spicey chicken pho..  I could eat it every day!

How would you log pho?

There is a pho in CC, I've used it before... not sure how accurate it is though if you are getting it at a restaurant.

Mmmm.... I had brought a healthy curry lentils and chicken dish for lunch today, then my buddy called and invited me for vietnamese... Yummy.... grilled pork with rolls on rice noodles!!!  I couldn't stop and ate the whole bowl. I'll have to work extra hard tonight to burn this off... ha ha....

does anyone have an approximate calorie count for a rice noodle bowl with meat, veg, and spring rolls?

Pho! I love pho! (I haven't had any since I started dieting)
