When at restaurants, it’s easy to over consume calories, saturated fat, sodium, and more.
Try these tips to make healthier food choices while dining out…
Skip high-calorie and sugary drinks, and opt for water, low-fat milk or unsweetened tea instead.
Start off with a salad to feel full sooner. Request dressing on the side so you can use less.
For smaller portions, order a side dish or appetizer as your meal, or share a large entree with others at the table.
Check menus for nutrition information. Ask about healthier substitutes, such as whole-grain breads or pasta.
Don’t feel obligated to finish your meal. Leftovers are great for lunch the next day!
