Eating healthy day 13: Wontons

Once again, I’m indulging in some homemade goodies thanks to my mama. They are pork and cilantro wontons! Normally you would boil them in a soupy base with ingredients like napa cabbage, seaweed, tomato slices and so forth. I chose the rebel route and ate them like dumplings; with the rest of my dumplings of course. Do I get enough protein, oh hell yes I do!

If you live in NYC, or not, you might have heard of or eaten at White Bear in Flushing. It’s this hole in the wall Chinese restaurant that specializes in wontons and dumplings. I’ve tried their #6 wonton special and it was underwhelming. But seriously who can blame me when you grew up with the best wonton & dumpling chef? I’m so spoiled…

Grocery List:

  • dumplings & wontons (only if you have the patience to make them at home, otherwise, do skip on the frozen store-bought ones since they’re full of healthy fat.)
  • cabbage
  • pickled garlic
