Healthy Choices When Eating Out

It can be difficult trying to find healthy choices when ordering take out or delivery but there are some helpful tips to make this process easier.

  • Read menu descriptions and find out the calorie and nutrients before ordering food
  • Be mindful of little extras to your order
  • Use your own plate so you can see how much is in the carton, box, or bag of food from the restaurant
  • Avoid bread, chips, fried foods and extra sauces on your food
  • Substitute rice, potatoes, or pasta for vegetables
  • Use portion control and have leftovers the next day
