It’s one thing to eat healthy at home when you’re in control of what’s available, right? But making healthy choices while traveling can sometimes put a strain on your ability to control your healthy eating habits. Travel and meals out are a part of life —and quite enjoyable, don’t you think?!

So what I have discovered is that feeling confident and comfortable with making healthy choices with the options you’re given is an important part of continuing your healthy lifestyle. Travel season is upon us. Getting ready is of the utmost importance.

Therefore, now is the time to get this under wraps so you can sail with confidence that you won’t enter another year with any unwelcomed extra pounds! (Stick with me because I’ll be helping you navigate times in your life when busy seems to dominate your lifestyle).

Simple tips you can take with you wherever you go… 

Don’t be afraid to ask! If you’re having difficulty finding something healthy on a menu, don’t be afraid to ask for a modification. People have more restrictions now, so restaurants are equipped to handle on the fly changes in a menu. Rather you are gluten intolerant, allergic to seafood or peanut oil.

So, for example, if you’re at an Italian restaurant with a menu full of pasta dishes —consider substituting the pasta for broccoli or spinach. You still get the toppings and sauce, but without the plate full of carbs. I love doing this!

3 Tips To Try Next Time You Dine Out

  1. Prepare yourself before going out.

  2. Pre-look the menu before you dine out

  3. Decide which of the meals on the menu are both tasty and healthy

I know all of the foregoing can seem time-consuming and not the kind of task you want to do while you’re in the restaurant. If you are like me and want to age gracefully, it will be smart to look at the menu of the restaurant before hand, which can usually be found on their website.

From the comfort of your own home, you can research which of the meals is the healthiest, and you’ll be ready to order when you get there without studying the menu for ten minutes! Learning how to do this is something that I offer my clients in our coaching sessions. If you need assistance just shoot me an email to schedule an appointment.

One of my favorite dining out tips

My favorite tip is making an appetizer as my meal with a side salad.  The amount of food you get with an appetizer and a small side salad is just the right amount. Not like the oversized portions often found on the entrée menu. I’m not sure about you, but haven’t you notice how the plates have gotten bigger over the last few years?

So, as you can see, these are simple hacks that will make a huge difference in the quality of food you eat while eating out.  With healthy restaurants popping up everywhere, making healthy choices becomes easier and easier to find healthy options while eating out, so take advantage of that.
