Even if you are diligent about packing healthful foods when traveling, or finding restaurants with nutritious choices when eating out, there may be times when your healthy dining options are limited. While I suggest you avoid eating fast food entirely, if you must, please keep the following in mind when ordering:
- No matter how hungry you are, you are better off ordering a small amount of food and making up for it with healthier foods later.
- Pile on the lettuce, tomato and other vegetables that come with your order, to add some fiber and antioxidants.
- Go for the salad – this option is now commonly available at fast-food establishments.
- Ask to see a list of the nutritional content of menu items. Some restaurants have them posted – if they don’t, ask for them, and then ask yourself if you really want to eat there.
