Healthy Eating When You Dine Out
Often, restaurant meals are loaded with excessive calories, fats, and sugars. However, you can still follow a healthy meal plan and dine out occasionally. Look for a reduced calorie section on the menu for lighter options. Choose a salad instead of a deep-fried appetizer and ask for dressing on the side. When ordering your entrée, request a take-home box in advance. Then, divide large portions before you begin eating.
