What to consider when eating out
Going to a restaurant shouldn’t be your excuse to eat unhealthy foods.
Here are some tips to enjoy a night off from cooking while still eating healthy:
Instead of waiting until you sit down at the place where you made reservations and hoping there will be something appealing on the menu, go online and scan the offerings ahead of time.
Despite how it appears at most restaurants, you’re not limited to how things are organised and offered on the menu.
Ask for a salad with dressing on the side to replace fries in a combination meal. Many restaurants honour requests so don’t be afraid to be assertive, ask menu questions and make special requests to meet your nutritional needs.
