Vegetables: carrots, cabbage, peas (or whatever you fancy)
Boiled rice
Gravy

Now, when you serve the meat, put the three slices on top of the rice and the 3 vegetables next to it on the same plate

Three kinds of meat sounds a lot, but buy small portions or eat the same for 3 days.

In China you consume the soup together or after the meal, not before. So why not make a tofu soup (very Taiwanese) or a seaweed soup. I think you can find the recipes if you google. Very healthy and very light.

And for afters: nothing....but a Chinese new year cookie an hour later with coffee/Chinese tea.

Let me know if you need further ideas...

Thank you very much for that suggestion.
