When our dietitian’s research hits my desk, I’m always surprised by how poorly some of my go-to takeaway picks score nutritionally.
Sushi, for instance, a potentially healthy choice, can be sky-high in unhealthy fat once you opt for those creamy mayo toppings or fillings. Meanwhile, my husband’s favourite fast-food dish, pad thai, turns out to be so high in fat that it eats up half his daily kilojoule allowance. Clearly, the world of takeaway can be a minefield for those of us who want to eat well.
