Eating out can be challenging when you want to live a healthy lifestyle.

Our resident dietitian Gabi Lasker Registered Dietician is here to help, next time you find yourself eating out.

1) PLAN

Look at the menu before picking a restaurant to see if they have healthy options available.

2) LIMIT SNACKING

Avoid the breadbasket and other snacks provided.

3) CHANGE IT UP

Rice, fries or wedges can be replaced with a baked potato, salad, steamed veg, or stir fry.

4) ON THE SIDE

Take dressings and sauces on the side as they add unwanted calories.

5) GRILL ME

Choose grilled, steamed or poached than fried options.

6) WATER

Order water to sip on, this slows down your eating so that you remain mindful about your meal.

7) PAUSE

You don’t have to finish a whole meal; restaurant portions are usually much bigger portions. Take your leftovers home for lunch the next day!

Bon Appétit!
