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!
