Dim Sums: Are they healthiest options when eating out

It is very difficult to control oneself from eating unhealthy food while having lunch or dinner outside. Starting from cheesy pizza to fried snacks, our mouth gets watered just by seeing those. At the same time, we know they are super unhealthy. So here’s a dish that is healthy as well as really tasty to eat while having food outside. Nutritionist Pooja Makhija recently took to Instagram to suggest a dish that you can relish guilt-free.

She revealed that dim sums are among the healthiest eating-out options. Explaining the reason, the nutritionist mentioned that these are generally bite-sized, high in protein, low in carbohydrates, and steamed.


“A lot of vitamins and minerals found in vegetables are lost when cooked using conventional methods. Hot steam used for cooking does require the food to come in contact with water, as it would when boiling, or with cooking oils and fats, as it would when frying. Steaming, in fact, enhances vitamins such as vitamin B, thiamine, niacin, vitamin C, etc. Additionally, minerals such as potassium, calcium, phosphorous, and zinc are retained,” she said.

“Since steaming softens the fibers of vegetables and fruits, it makes the food easily digestible our body can absorb all that nutritional goodness more easily,” she said while concluding.
