You can eat out and stick to your healthy eating plan! The key is to plan ahead, ask questions and choose foods carefully. Compare nutrition information, if available, and look for healthier options that are grilled, baked, broiled or steamed.
Choose the seasonal vegetables as a size or get a salad bar and limit the high calorie choices like pudding, dressings and prepared salads.
Most chain restaurants have their menus posted on line with nutritional information, plan ahead and review for healthier choices.
Some restaurants specialize in healthy options or have a lower calorie section of the menu.
Another way to save on calories is to divide you meal in half and take half home or split it with someone.
If you do choose an unhealthy option, be sure to make it a once in a while treat. Don't beat yourself up, just get back on track tomorrow.
