Many people are choosing to eat healthy at home, but it can be difficult to do the same when you go out. If you take a few moments to think about what you are ordering when you go to a restaurant, you can still eat well while enjoying the service and atmosphere.
The first line of defense in healthy eating is the establishment. Fast food restaurants have many options, but eating quickly is not as satisfying and may not keep you sustained for the few hours until your next meal. Choose somewhere you can sit down and relax during your meal.
Think about how you start your meal. Choose your beverage wisely. Sodas have many calories. Having an appetizer can help take the edge off your appetite, but try to stickto vegetables and salads. Be aware, however, that sauces and dressings can add a lot of calories as well.
When you are at a restaurant for dinner, choose main dishes that are steamed, grilled, or broiled, not fried. Order main dishes with vegetables, such as stir-fries or a pasta primavera. Choose foods that do not have creamy sauces or rich gravies. Be cautious about using too much butter on your bread. Watch your portion sizes, andchoose fruit for dessert.
