Wellness Wednesday: Volume 5 // Eating Out

November 6, 2019

Happy Wednesday! For my Wellness Wednesday post this week I wanted to answer a frequently asked question.

Question: What are your go-to healthy things you order when eating out?

Answer: Here are some examples of what I would order on WEEKDAYS depending on where we are.

drink //

  • Water + Veggie Based Juice (lunch)
  • Sauvignon Blanc (dinner)
  • Skinny Margarita (dinner)

main course //

  • Seafood or Fish
    • Tuna Tartare
    • Sushi *ask for no rice – or for it to be rolled in cucumber
    • Poke Bowl
    • Salad with Grilled Salmon
    • Fish Tacos *ask to be grilled & naked (no shell or tortilla)
  • Soup *non cream based – love a good Miso or broth based soup
  • Grilled Portobello Mushroom
  • Warm Bowl with Quinoa/Veggie/Protein *light cheese
  • Salad
    • Do’s: dark green leaf lettuce, lean protein grilled, fat (avocado/nut), dressing on side
    • Don’ts: fried protein, croutons, too much dressing, too much cheese

sides //

  • salad to start *dressing & cheese on the side – depending on what it is will depend on how much I use
  • grilled veggies or edamame
  • chips & salsa/guac *ask for a side of cucumbers for dipping

On WEEKENDS I do treat myself and indulge when we are out to eat. I like to order any of my favorites – pasta or pizza, tacos, calamari, a cheese board and spicy margaritas.
