Once you get to ordering, you work around what the restaurant offers to make it into the shape you like.
Make healthy substitutions!
- Fruit salad instead of fries
- Water or milk instead of soda
- Steamed, broiled, grilled, roasted instead of fried
- Dressings and sauces on the side instead of on the meal
- Whole wheat bread instead of white
When you see the food and portion sizes, you can control it better by either sharing or immediately asking for a take-home container and putting half of the meal in there before you start.
