“How to eat out” has always been a topic of interest for those who are striving to eat a healthy diet.
Most of us know that restaurant food is perhaps some of the most unhealthy food out there – filled with hidden fats (butter, oils, creams), added sugars, hidden dairy products, aluminum, excessive sodium, nitrates, and tons of artificial preservatives.
But there are ways to order a decent meal from a menu. And if you know in advance which restaurant you’ll be visiting, so much the better. Call ahead, ask the right questions, and ask the chef to prepare something within your guidelines.
If you don’t have a chance to pre-plan, this article from the Forks over Knives website features a great list of questions to ask before making your menu choice.
Remember to bring your own salad dressing when you can
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. (Romans 12:2(a), NLT)
