That is often the question…

While cooking meals at home gives you more control over what you eat, there are many reasons to dine out — including saving time (avoiding meal prep and planning), trying new cuisine and spending time with friends and loved ones.

There are many ways you can enjoy dining out without compromising your healthy-eating progress. 1) Check the restaurant’s menu and select healthy options prior to arriving at the restaurant (most have their menus listed online). 2) Choose baked or steamed foods over those breaded or deep-fried. 3) When possible, ask for whole grain bread or buns. 4) Ask for salad dressing on the side and use only as much as you feel you need to enjoy your meal – without overdoing it.

Developing healthy routines is certainly an important factor in improving your health but you shouldn’t be afraid to fall out of routine once in a while.
