Healthy – Dining – Tips

When dining out, there are a couple foods you should absolutely AVOID to make sure you are eating the healthiest. You should really try to stay away from these foods:

  • Fried foods (fries, fish sandwiches, fried chicken)
  • Oversized portions
  • Full fat salad dressings
  • Biscuits
  • Sugar-fortified beverages (cola, sweet tea)
  • Anything with cheese on it

Instead, you should replace those foods with these healthier alternatives:

  • Smallest portions available – regular hamburgers vs. quarter pounder
  • Reduced fat/lite dressings
  • Whole grain sandwiches or wraps with lean protein (turkey, chicken) and as many veggies as possible
  • Water, unsweetened tea or coffee
  • Entree salads without croutons or full fat dressings
  • Fresh fruit side
