Eating Out- Decoding the Menu

Posted on February 19, 2010

Restaurant chefs are great at creating menu items that have delicious sounding appetizers and entrees.  The problem is that these meals can sound fairly healthy but actually are very high in fat and calories.

Order proteins that are described as grilled, broiled, or poached.  Avoid anything that is breaded, crispy, pan fried, or crusted.  These mean that it has been fried in some way.

Ask for your sauces on the side that way you can get the taste without having your food swimming in it.  Avoid sauces that are described as creamy or buttery because they will be very high in fat and calories.

Stick with the steamed veggies when you can over heavy starches.

Classes are available for Little Rhinos (3 and 4 years old), Juniors (5-13 years old), Adult (14 years +).
