Homemade stir fry vs. Panda Express

Here is my nutritional comparison for my homemade stir fry and a similar meal at Panda Express. My facts were taken off of Panda Express's website and caloriecount.about.com

Homemade stir fry:
Vegetables: calories: 20, fat: 0g, cholesterol: 0g, sodium: 30mg, carbs: 3g, protein: 1g
Rice: calories: 205, fat: 0g, cholesterol: 0g, sodium: 0g, carbs: 44.5g, protein: 4.3g

Panda Express Meal: 
Vegetables: calories: 35, fat: 0g, cholesterol: 0mg, sodium: 360mg, carbs: 7g, protein: 2g
Rice: calories: 380, fat: 0g, cholesterol: 0g, sodium: 0g, carbs: 86g, protein: 7g

As you can see, the homemade meal is much healthier for you. Especially when you consider the amount of sodium that is in the similar Panda Express meal.
