HEALTHY CHOICES FOOD SNIPPETS:
You’re in a restaurant or ordering in. When the food
arrives, it’s piled so high you think there’s no way you
can finish it. Sometimes it tastes so good you can’t stop.
But then you’re too full. Typical restaurant servings are
often twice the size of a single serving. Try this: When
dining out or ordering in, ask for half of a serving or a
"doggy bag." That way you won’t be as full, and you can
have some tomorrow.
Fast food combines two of our favorite desires: things in
a hurry and food. Unfortunately, it also tends to combine
a lot of fat and calories. But it doesn’t have to if we’re
careful. You can still get food in a hurry, but try these
Order a lean roast beef sandwich. Order grilled chicken
sandwiches and do the fixings "your way." Keep the portions
to regular and small. No "doubling" anything or "going
large." Order items without the cheese.
