Going out to lunch soon? Keep reading! I love going out to eat, but what I don’t love are the high calories and fat lurking in everything! Luckily, along with the mandatory publishing of nutritional information, many restaurants are offering ‘light’ options, which makes me super happy! Doesn’t it make you happy? If you want to stay healthy and cut half of the fat when eating out, choose restaurant light menu options.
Sometimes they are available on a separate menu but usually they are marked with a symbol within the standard menu. I was recently dining at The Cheesecake Factory and came across their SkinnyLicious menu. Don’t these sound great?… Beets With Goat Cheese, Herb Crusted Salmon, and Petite Grilled Tenderloin of Beef? Well, not only do they sound great, but taste great as well.
The only thing I’d watch out for is salads. Most restaurants often drizzle way too much dressing, which kills the healthy option of having a salad. When in doubt, ask to see the nutritional information, or you can always ask for the dressing on the side to make things easier.
On your next lunch outing, see if you can spot the light options. Give them a chance; they may surprise you!
I hope you’ll glance through your next meal option with a healthy conscious! Enjoy!
