GOOD WW OPTIONS AT PF CHANGS
P.F. Changs China Bistro is a restaurant that serves American Chinese cuisine and other Asian-inspired dishes.
Typically, a lot of Chinese dishes are fairly high in WW points because of the sauces, breading and many dishes are fried.
There are some menu options at P.F. Changs that are better than others.
WHY ARE THE POINTS THE SAME?
When you look at the Weight Watchers Points for PF Changs printable menu items you may notice that the points are same on all 3 plans for many menu items.
The reason the points come out the same despite the plan differences is simple.
When you create a recipe with the WW recipe builder you are entering individual ingredients and the points are figured based on the ingredients.
Unfortunately, when you are figuring menu items from a restaurant you do not have the ingredients and ingredient amounts. The points have to be based on the nutritional data that is provided by the restaurant.
Since the information is all based on the nutritional information it ends up making the points the same or close to the same for all 3 plans.
