Eating out a Challenge!
Sunday, March 17, 2013
--There is so much to learn about "'eating out""---
I still have problems----
In the book, "The End Of Diabetes"", by Joel Fuhrman, he recommends we choose restaurants with healthy options. He says to eat early so the staff will have time to modify a dish. If it's breakfast, go for oatmeal and fruit--no bagels. For lunch and dinner, ask for steamed vegetables to accompany your main dish-no white rice or pasta.
Stay away from soups which are made ahead and loaded with salt.
Order a double sized salad perhaps-- Tell the server to NOT bring bread to the table.
Sometimes, heading to a grocery store and boosting your meals with nuts and fruits in season, help.
I find eating out, a challenge. In our area, we really have no healthy restaurants----
Son #1 owns a popular restaurant in our town---He maintains that people desire all the creamy pasta and garlic breads as eating out is their treat---but---(The big "'butt"")----for me, I have to eat to live, and it's a challenge for me to create a healthy meal .
But it can be done if I plan ahead---
Happy St Paddy's Day Sparkly people!
