Eating Healthy When Dining Out

Regardless of whether you’re trying to lose weight, you can eat healthy when dining out, if you know how.

So, if you’re treating yourself to a meal out, here are some tips to help make it a dining experience that is both tasty and good for you.

ASK!

Will the restaurant:

  • * Serve margarine rather than butter with the meal?
  • * Serve fat-free (skim) milk rather than whole milk or cream?
  • * Trim visible fat from poultry or meat?
  • * Leave all butter, gravy, or cream sauces off a dish?
  • * Serve salad dressing on the side?
  • * Accommodate special requests?
  • * Use less cooking oil when cooking?

ACT!

Select foods that are:

  • * Steamed in their own juice (au jus)
  • * Broiled
  • * Baked
  • * Roasted
  • * Poached
  • * Lightly sauteed
