We all know how much we crave for eating at the restaurants. Right?
Eating at the restaurants and good health don’t go hand in hand. We all have a perception that eating too much at the restaurants can make you fall ill or can be bad for your digestion. But do you know you have an option of eating healthy food at the restaurants too?
Yes! Eating at the restaurants can be healthy also. All you need to do is make healthy choices. Here are the tips that will help you chose your food wisely.
1. Scan the menu
Whenever you order at the restaurants, look for the healthy options. We know it becomes impossible to eat healthy all the time and little calories overloaded can be okay for some days. But you can still look for words in the menu like grilled, steamed, baked, roasted, braised, broiled and seared. Avoid ordering something that offers you food that is pan-fried, crispy, dipped, scalloped, breaded, cream and alfredo.
2. Ask about preparations
Always ask about the preparations for anything that you eat. The chefs are trained to use lots of butter and salt in the dish to enhance the flavour of it. If you are concerned about your health then ask the chef to use little less of thing you don’t want.
3. Don’t be afraid to order special
We all have an option to order specially made dishes for us. After all, we are paying a good sum of money or it. Ask the chef to prepare the dish according to your choice and this will help you curb on some calories.
4. Ask to double or triple the vegetables
Any vegetables used in the restaurants are just for the sake of garnishing the dish and not for our health. We all have the option to ask for double or triple the vegetables in the dish. You can escape the unwanted calories just by paying a few extra bucks.
5. Bottom line
Eating out doesn’t have to be unhealthy. You have got options to choose from. Watch your portion sizes and choose items on the menu that have more nutritional value.
