Chinese food is good if the sauces don't have too much salt or sugar. Soy/edamame is considered a no no on BB, but on swank it's OK. My hubby eats lots of edamame and soy sauce- because we know he's not allergic. If soy's not an issue for you, go for it. But get the low salt version.
Most good chinese restaurants have eliminated MSG...but when in doubt, just ask them to leave it out. I do a stir fry at home with olive oil (olive oil's not good at really high temps, so I don't cook too hot) pea pods, chicken, fresh ginger and a splash of soy. Good on wild rice. It's a bit different than the usual Chinese food, but really tasty.
We eat 180 deg. differently than before my hubby's dx. Tonight was garlic/ pesto turkey burgers, red potatoes w/olive oil and fresh peas. Even my teenager likes to eat "Dad's food"...but it took a bit of time to adjust.
