How to Eat Healthy While Dining Out
When faced with a menu it can be difficult to know if you are making a
healthy decision, or if the food you order will head straight for your
waistline! Read the following tips on how to eat healthy while dining out,
and dine out guilt free!
Steer Clear of Buffet Style Restaurants: Since buffet style restaurants
offer you an unlimited amount of food, the result is often major overeating.
You feel the need to not only get your money's worth, but also to sample
everything that catches your eye. Buffets often have high fat foods such as
cream-based salads and fried foods, which are quite tempting and appealing
to the palate. Avoid putting yourself in a buffet line, and stick with
ordering a portioned meal instead.
Pay Attention to How things are Cooked: You can learn a lot about what a
dish will do to your waistline by knowing how it was cooked. Food items that
are fried are always going to be higher in fat and calories, and should be
avoided. Order foods that have been baked, steamed, broiled or roasted, and
your waist will thank you.
Watch Out For Creamy Dressings: When you are ordering watch out for cream
based dressings. Alfredo, ranch, and thousand island are all culprits when
it comes to fat and calorie saturation. If the dish that you wish to order
contains a creamy dressing, ask your waiter for another option, or order the
dressing on the side and eat a small portion of it.
Control Portion Size: Most restaurant meals are two or more times larger
than a typical meal we would eat at home. This means that you end up eating
calories that you really don't need. Ask your waiter for a to go box when
you order your food and fill it with half of your meal as soon as you get
it. This will keep you from eating more than you should, and you have lunch
ready for tomorrow!
Eat Vegetables: Order meals that contain fresh vegetables or salad rather
than carbohydrate filled rice or pasta. Vegetables are healthier for you and
will fill you up with fiber and vitamins rather than carbohydrates or fat.
Share Dessert: Nothing tops off a great meal quite like a sweet dessert.
Instead of throwing caution to the wind and downing the New York cheesecake
yourself, share it with your significant other! This cuts out half of the
calories, but leaves you with just as much enjoyment.
You are now ready to brave the world of daily specials and white tablecloths
with ease as you order healthy meals without guilt! Have a great dinner!
