Yoshinoya. Healthy Or Not?


Is Yoshinoya chicken bowl healthly or not. It seem like it would be healthy because it comes with rice, brocolli, carrot, lettuce and skinless chicken. But the only thing i am not sure is of the sauce it comes with.

Only prob is that doesn't really say what is in it as far as the carbs go. There's probably a decent amount of sugar in there. It also has a lot of sodium, I wouldn't exactly call it "healthy" but its not going to kill you to have one every few days.

Is this a frozen dinner, you're going to have problems finding any of those that you can really rely on by themselves. You're better off getting some frozen veggies, frozen chicken, and some brown rice (not the instant kind) and preparing it yourself.

The chicken and rice can both be done in about 30 minutes to an hour, and you can cook enough of each at one time to last you a few days. As far as the veggies go those only take about 10-15 minutes in a frying pan w/ cooking spray, or 3-4 minutes boiling in water. Then all it takes is nuking one of the chicken breasts and some of the rice for about 30-45 seconds. Once its all prepared you can just slice up a chicken breast and put it over the rice with some vegetables and a little bit of Heinz 57 or another low-sugar low-sodium sauce (or without any sauce if you prefer.)

All in all you spend around 1 hour one or two days a week making it all, and the rest of the week you barely spend 10 minutes to heat everything up and eat it. If you just prepare a day's worth of veggies each morning ('bout 10 minutes) you'll be able to spend less than 5 minutes putting a rice bowl together later on in the day. Less convenient than a frozen meal, but better in the long run, and still not that time-consuming either. I usually just throw stuff in the oven and get something else done while it cooks.
