Eating in restaurants when you’re on a restricted diet can be maddeningly difficult if not impossible. Every restaurant dish is loaded with salt and/or fat and/or sugar or other sweeteners.
You could become a hermit, eating every meal at home, the same boring things over and over again, cutting yourself off from the larger world around you. But who wants to do that with their lives?
Not me, so I’ve been looking through menu nutrition information and talking to chefs and restaurant manager’s trying to find dishes I can still enjoy away from home. I still want to socialize and eating out is a major part of that.
I’ve now compiled all my eating out tips into a new eating away from home page here. It has links to posts I’ve done on what you can eat away from home, along with others such as how to cope with an unexpected meal in a strange restaurant.
Check it out here and send me your tips as well.
