out can be an enjoyable experience that you look forward to. Just
because you want to eat well doesn’t mean you have to forego
your favorite restaurants. Eating out gets dangerous and unhealthy
when the decision is based on time and convenience rather than relaxation
- If you find yourself driving through fast food and picking
up to-go orders because you’re too tired to cook, you might
want to think of ways to reorganize your day to fit in time for
healthy meal at home.
- Take control of what you eat. If the bulk
of your nutrition comes from restaurants, then you’re not
in control of your food, and you could be loading up on fats
without getting the basic
nutrients you need.
- Try preparing food in advance, maybe on a
Sunday night, and freezing meal portions, to avoid the time crunch
that forces you to keep
- If you still feel the need to rush through the fast lane on
your way to dinner, look for healthy options. Now even fast food
are providing healthy options such as low-fat salads and vegetables.
At most restaurants, there will be lighter or heart-healthy
options to choose from.
