Chinese food pros and cons
No dairy. Many people are lactose intolerant and now more and more research is revealing that dairy is not that good for you after all. Chinese cuisine has limited dairy, off the top of my head deep fried ice cream is the only dairy I remember seeing at a Chinese restaurant.
Liberal use of vegetables. There are not many dishes in Chinese cuisine that don’t come with vegetables. The Chinese are especially big on leafy greens like bok choy, spinach and cabbage. But you will also find often carrot, baby corn, onion and celery.
Wide variety. Chinese cuisine makes use of numerous vegetables meats and grains. There are fried dishes, boiled dishes, and roast options like peking duck. With all the options there aren’t many people who can definitely say they don’t like Chinese food.
Easy to cook. If you want to prepare something at home quickly Chinese wont give you any headaches. The basic and common dishes are made of fried meat, stir fry rice and vegetables. Soy sauce is a basic addition as well if you aren’t looking for the more complicated sauces.
MSG. MSG is a flavour enhancer commonly found in Chinese food. MSG has long been linked to causing symptoms such as headache, dizziness, flushing, sweating, nausea and shaking. Some people may be sensitive to this ingredient and should avoid it entirely.
