VERDICT: “This has a better ratio of carbs to fat and protein, and also much less salt and sugar than the Korean pot,” adds Natasha. “It also has more plant diversity, which can support a healthy gut microbiome.” With 31g of protein and 10g of fibre per serving, it’ll keep you full all afternoon, and the addition of brown rice packs more fibre and magnesium than white rice.
MAKE IT HEALTHIER: Add in more colour, says Clarissa. “Green vegetables are fantastic for our health, but diversity is key. Pick up a side salad to go with this, or some carrot sticks for a beta-carotene boost. Swapping the teriyaki sauce for soy will lower the sugar content of the dish, too.” Go one step further and hack your blood sugar response to the meal, says Natasha. “Eat the veg first, then the chicken, then the rice. Eating in this order can reduce a blood sugar spike by 75%, which help with mood, cravings and energy levels later in the day.”
