If you made a New Year’s resolution to drop some weight or to just eat healthier, you are not alone. In fact, research shows that the top two resolutions Americans make, year after year, are healthy eating and losing weight. Unfortunately, many people struggle to adhere to their dietary resolutions…especially when it comes to eating out. There is no need to worry that dining out will derail your diet! Knowing there are healthy options on the menu can help you stick to your goals, without having to give up your social life.
Grilled Catfish & Grilled Tilapia
Fish is among the healthiest foods on the planet. It is loaded with important nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D. Fish is also the world’s best source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are incredibly important for your body and brain. Grilled fish has a lower fat and calorie content, compared to fried fish, which results in a healthier meal and makes it easier to manage a low fat diet.
Southwest Chicken , Turkey Avocado, and Fajita Wraps
Much like sandwiches, wraps combine proteins, fats, vegetables, and grains, forming a delicious and nutritious meal. The main difference between the two is the use of tortillas, instead of bread. Tortillas contain nutrients including fiber, vitamins and minerals, all of which are essential to a well-balanced diet.
Steaming vegetables ensures that vitamins such as vitamin B, riboflavin, thiamine, niacin, biotin, B12, pantothenic acid, and vitamin C, as well as minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, and zinc are retained. Vegetables are naturally low in fat and calories and provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of your body.
House Salad & Pro Bowl Salad
Eating salads is a super-convenient way to work in a couple of servings of vegetables to your diet. Salads are cool, crunchy, and fun to eat – not to mention, they’re good for you too! Salads are high in fiber, antioxidant rich, full of vitamins, and low in calories (depending on the dressing). And because leafy greens are rich with fiber, salads can make you feel fuller, eat less, and ultimately lose weight.
When you are trying to watch your weight, eating out can be intimidating and scary. But, it isn’t supposed to be, and should be fun and sociable. Just remember, you can dine out successfully and enjoy your experience by ordering healthier options from the menu.
