Healthy or not, mee chiang kueh?

Here is this week’s #BGSOTW (BoxGreen’s Snack of the Week)…

OUR RATING: SO-SO
Eh? So-so only?
For breakfast, this should be substantial enough as it contains a little protein and carbs. As a snack, it might be a little on the heavy side, so have it if you’re really starting to feel hungry rather than a snack for when you’re bored.
Total calories of one piece: 186kcal
Other healthier alternatives:
You could up your fibre and protein intake with these options:
- A piece of wholegrain bread with peanut butter
- Low/no sugar tau huey (beancurd)
- Small handful of nuts and seeds
