Yes…. I get it. I don’t always have time to cook either. And brewing the perfect bowl of Vietnamese Pho or Bun Bo Hue at home would take hours until you hit perfection. But at the same time, you still want to eat healthy. So here are a few tricks that will reduce calories, carbs, and fat without sacrificing flavor.

1. Ask for half the noodle amount – each cup of vermicelli noodles is about 220 calories. Imagine still enjoying this delicious dish but with less calories.

2. Ask for the leanest cuts of meat – this could be chicken, filet mignon, or seafood. Just ask your server.

3. Ask for more veggies – by doing this, you’ll feel like you’re still have a hearty flavorful meal even after you only eat half the noodles.
