Since I was taking a bye week and decided not to cook, I’ve been eating out or ordering food a lot. This is something I generally try not to do too often for two reasons: the first is financial and the second is nutritional.
As Erin mentioned in her post yesterday, it’s much harder to make healthy choices at a restaurant than at home. The funny thing is, I find it easier to make healthy choices when I order delivery than when I go to the real restaurant. I tend to find a couple healthy dishes I like and order them again and again. If I go to a restaurant the sights and smells of other people’s food makes me want to try something new and oftentimes less healthy.
So over the last few days, I took pictures of the dishes I ate at restaurants, got delivered, or scrounged up in my apartment in a few minutes. I managed to eat pretty healthy and for that I’m proud of myself.
Here’s a slide show of my nutritional adventures. I find take out food is less visually appealing than eating in a restaurant…but I’m too lazy to plate my food.
What’s your favorite healthy restaurant and/or item on the menu?
