To keep fit, you need to exercise more and have a sound diet. Nowadays, some business pioneers in Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, have started to sell light meals both online and offline.

The term “light meal” literally means food with less oil, less salt and fewer calories. It is also understood as a kind of snack which is easily cooked and less time-consuming for customers. Though the concept is borrowed from European countries, "light meal" is warmly welcomed by Kunming youngsters who are eager to keep fit. 

In Kunming, the light-meal restaurants and online take-out shops provide various kinds of food, including chicken breast and vegetable salad, avocado sandwich, sugar-free yogurt, wheat bread with fruit juice, and others. Also, the low-calorie Tom-Yam hot pot gets highly recommended on the winter menu. 

"Light meal" means neither vegetarian diet nor eating less food, but advocates balanced, healthy and fresh meals, said a light-meal sellers in Kunming.
