Tips for eating out at restaurants
If you find yourself at a restaurant, keep in mind these tips to assist in choosing healthier options:
- Avoid all-you-can-eat buffets
- Avoid filling up on bread prior to your main course
- If ordering a salad, request the dressing on the side (some salads have so many toppings they don’t require much dressing if at all)
- Don’t try to be a member of the “clean plate club???, take a “doggie bag??? instead
- Educate yourself and look-up nutrition information before hand (if available)
Remember the importance of eating every 3-4 hours. Sometimes you can’t control when you’re going to eat next so try to bring healthy convenient snacks with you wherever you go. References: Dietitians.net. Food On The Run! August 7, 2009 Dietitians of Canada. Tips. 2010
