My day started with a super sweaty, super awesome spin class. Then, around lunch time, my mom asked if I wanted to grab a bite to eat, and suggested going to Mimi’s Cafe. Uhhhh….Yes!
And for lunch, I ordered the broiled chicken, which came with a side salad and fruit.
-Do research beforehand
Many restaurants now offer special “light” or “healthy” menus for health conscious consumers, and many of them can be pretty good! My dish from Mimi’s was on the “Fresh & Fit” menu, and contained less than 500 calories!
-Read descriptions carefully, and modify your order if needed
Choose dishes that are described as “baked”, “broiled” or “grilled”, and avoid items that are “fried”, “smothered”, or “creamy”
We all know restaurant desserts are MASSIVE and loaded with calories, so share with a friend!
-Leave some wiggle room
Unless your going out for lunch or dinner everyday, dining out is usually a special occasion, so splurge a little without feeling guilty!
