10 healthy choices for dining out at a restaurant

Last week I was invited to do a ‘Lunch and Learn’ talk about ‘Healthy Lunches on the Go.’  Most of the info I provided the participants with had to do with increasing nutrition to make their home-made lunches healthier.

With how busy life is, we all know that it is challenging to bring our own lunch from home everyday.  So here are 10 tips to help you make healthy choices when dining out at a restaurant:

  1. Choose a salad or vegetables instead of French fries
  2. Choose grilled chicken over breaded and deep fried
  3. Choose chicken, turkey or fish over beef and pork
  4. Choose whole grain over white bread
  5. Choose the meal with the most vegetables
  6. Choose water over soft drinks
  7. Choose herbal tea over coffee
  8. Ask for sauces and dressings on the side
  9. Go vegetarian
  10. Skip the dessert

Any more tips? Feel free to share!
