So in todays blog we are talking about eating out.
The reason for this is that many people we work with struggle with sticking to their "regular" healthy eating habits when visiting a cafe or restaurant. All too often we hear people saying they are confused by how they can head out for a bite without busting their daily calorie intake.
The question is, is it easy to stick to a healthy diet when eating out?
As an example, we pay regular visits to a local cafe called Joe's Village Cafe in Coolock Village. The reason for this is that the service Geraldine and the other members of staff provides is really warm, friendly and personal and the food not only tastes great but is also great value for money. All of which fits in with the Evolutis core values and principles.
(Oh yeah, they are also a 98fm best of Dublin award winning cafe!)
One of the options Joe's have on the menu is a (high protein!) chilli chicken omelette containing vegetables, chicken & cheese. This also comes with toast and tea or coffee on the side.
Now, if you were keeping an eye on your calorie intake, there is a very simple way to adjust this particular meal and the great thing is if you ask the girls in Joe's, they'll do this for you! :)
Now, these might seem like very small adjustments in the grand scheme of things, and you'd be right. The thing is, most of us put weight on very slowly over time. It's kind of like death (weight gain) by a thousand paper cuts. So one of the best ways to reverse this trend is to change all your tiny little habits so that you lose weight gradually over time.
Also - by taking this approach you won't need to deny yourself an afternoon or evening "treat" out either by yourself or with friends, family or your better half. The ultimate win/win situation!
So what else can you do to save on those extra "hidden" calories when eating out in Joe's or any other cafe or restaurant?
