The Same Goes for Steamed Dumplings

Sure, steaming saves calories, but whether it's enough to matter depends on what's inside. A steamed pork dumpling is around 80 calories—just 10 fewer than the pan-fried version. Those stuffed with vegetables, on the other hand, are about 35 calories apiece.

So if you love the pork version and can stop at one dumpling, go for it. But if you're, well, only human and tend to enjoy a few at a sitting, try the steamed veggie dumplings—three will save you more than 130 calories and nearly 10 grams of fat over their steamed pork brethren.

Bonus: "Veggies naturally have a lot less sodium than shrimp or pork," notes Elisa Zied, R.D., author of Nutrition at Your Fingertips.
