Now that many of you are going out to eat again, plan to make healthy nutritional choices.
- Choose a veggie-packed salad for your main meal.
- Go light on toppings like bacon and cheese.
- Load your pizza with colorful veggies. Ask for whole wheat bread or brown rice.
- Choose chicken or fish that is broiled or baked instead of breaded or fried.
- Ask for sauces to be brought on the side and use only half.
- Order low-fat milk or a glass of water instead of sugary drinks.
- Split a meal with a family member or a friend. This is a great way to have one of your favorite meals while cutting half the calories and fat.
