Let’s talk making healthy choices on the go.
If you’re in a position where you can’t eat a prepared meal such as for a work meeting or dinner engagement out, it’s more than possible to make good food choices that won’t leave you feeling bloated and lethargic.
Oftentimes I will opt for a salad, then omit toppings that will add unhealthy carbs, sodium and fats. That includes croutons, cheeses and dressings. I will ask for them to be served on the side so I can control how much goes on.
Also be sure to opt for lean protein such as grilled chicken or steak, places like Chipotle carry pork and chorizo as options but these are often heavy on fats.
Things like pico de gallo can add tons of flavor without upping the carbs or fats too much as well, so it’s a great way to incorporate improved taste in the meal.
Don’t forget, the My Fitness Pal app also allows you to search menus for healthy options based on the geolocation of the restaurant, so utilize that to help you make better choices before you order!
