Chicken Teriyaki Lunch: Healthy Choice or Not?
I was tired of the same old 1/2 turkey sandwich and small soup special for lunch. So I decided to try a teriyaki chicken lunch special at my local Japanese restaurant. Being the curious nutritionist I am, I had to “dissect” it and calculate the calories (and videotape my efforts). Guess how many calories it had?
Check out my video as I analyzed my lunch
So here is the calorie breakdown of my chicken teriyaki lunch special:
5 seafood shumai = 125 calories
2 cups rice = 500 calories
6 1/2 oz chicken (combo of white and dark meat,somewhat fatty) with a little teriyaki sauce = 425 calories
small salad with 1 T. orange dressing = 80 calories
A whooping total of 1200 calories!
I don’t think I’ll be having that for lunch again. If IREALLY had the urge for this meal, I’d have to split in half.

I especially love problem-solving, whether it’s helping women defeat issues plaguing them for years, helping a busy executive find practical ways to get heart healthy, or providing tips to help you reverse diabetes. That’s why I’m on a constant quest to expand my knowledge by staying on top of the latest research.
