Eating on the go can seem daunting if you want to eat even semi-healthy. There are so many temptations on a menu, you can get distracted!
As a general rule when going out to eat, if I want to stay on track, I try to eat low-carb.
Not that I think carbs are bad, nor do I cut them out of my daily diet, but I like to know what is in my meal if I am going to truly make a good decision.
Restaurants cook with lots of fat because fat makes things taste delicious. So what you might think as being a “healthy rice” side, could turn into a calorie bomb because it is cooked with fat, paired with your buttery fish and veggies.
You could ask for the food to be prepared without oil or butter, but again personally, that just makes for a miserable time eating out. (Fats taste so good!) You might as well have cooked at home. But feel free to ask if you find yourself eating out a lot. No harm in asking!
How to enjoy your restaurant meal without thinking you completely blew it…
…or trying to order a complicated meal, just stick to my simple rule— pass on the heavy carbs and order extra veggies. I do this every where and most places are happy to accommodate a substitution.
One of our most popular blog post is “Eating Out in the Burg,” a listing of local restaurants in Hattiesburg, Ms and what our coaches and clients order CK-Style. You’ll notice, most of the meals follow my rule above. And though we think these are helpful to get an idea of how to order at any restaurant or city, we thought we would expand our reach and into other cities!
First up is Tupelo, MS!
We’ve partnered up with FitCamp, a local women’s gym and indoor bootcamps, to give you the scouting report for local CK-approved eats. Coach Casey and her crew are living that CK-Lifestyle and ready to help Tupelo learn the CK-ways. Here’s what they have found around town!
