How to Stay Heart Healthy While Dining Out

Last updated 3 years ago

Are you worried about the health implications of having a restaurant meal? This video provides suggestions on how to eat nutritiously when enjoying a night out.

Key to eating healthily is knowing what ingredients are in your meals. When considering your dining options, select an establishment that can offer meal preparation details. If the restaurant offers complimentary bread, you might want to consider skipping it, as it typically contains high amounts of cholesterol and sodium. Should you decide to order chicken or turkey, remove the skin to save on calories and fat. You can also enhance the heart benefits of your meals by having a side of veggies instead of rice or fries.
