Last night we went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday at a local restaurant called Asiana Cafe in Greenwich. We were lucky that the weather was nice and we grabbed a table outside!
When eating out at a restaurant there are obviously tons of unhealthy choices, but there are also ways to eat healthy too.
To start try ordering a salad or a broth based soup.
I ordered a Ginger salad, which was super simple with a healthy dressing. Avoid creamy dressings, they have way more calories.
It seems now a days the portion sizes are extremely large, so try splitting an entree with a friend.
I split this chicken & broccoli dish with one of my friends and it was the perfect amount of food. It helps you avoid getting overly stuffed where you want to unbutton your pants!
As a side at an oriental restaurant try choosing the whole grain brown rice instead of the traditional white rice. It contains healthy grains and fiber! You will leave feeling great about your healthy choices.
It was a great night out with my friends and I look forward to our next girls night
Additional Tips for Eating Healthy at a Restaurant:
- Drink water and avoid sugary beverages
- Order steamed, grilled, or broiled meals and stay clear of sauteed & fried
- Ask for the salad dressing on the side
- choose main dishes that include lots of veggies
Most importantly enjoy your company when you eat out!
