Stay Healthy while Eating Out – Tips from STONEFIRE Grill
With each new year comes a new round of resolutions and, of course, one of the most common resolutions for the vast majority of people is to eat healthy and lose weight. This is more easily said than done, especially when it comes to eating out. We’ve put together a few tips to help you maintain your resolution and stay healthy, all year round.
Create a Diet Plan
The key to any successful initiative is to make a plan, and stick with it. Consult with your doctor, or conduct some internet research to determine your recommended daily calorie intake. Then, plan your meals in advance with portions and recipes that fit your body type. If you know ahead of time that you’ll be eating out, eat light earlier in the day as not to diverge from your diet. This will allow you to enjoy yourself without feeling guilty.
Choosing a Restaurant
Each day, for each meal, we have the option to order food at a restaurant. Whether it is affordable fast food, or a lovely sit down dinner – the option is pretty much always there. One thing that is not always present: the ability to fight temptation. If you have trouble resisting the urge to eat out, then simply choose better restaurants. Create a list in your phone, keeping track of restaurants that you know have healthier options. Each time you get the urge to eat out, reference the list and go to one of those restaurants! Look for places with a wide range of menu items and check for available nutrition information.
Here at STONEFIRE Grill our menu offers something for everyone and Nutritional information is available for every item on our menu making it easy for you to plan ahead and make a healthy choice. Plus, we’re more than happy to modify any of our meals to your needs.
Having healthy options to choose from when you’re dining out is key and here at STONEFIRE Grill, we make it easy. We’ve added three new salads to our already large salad menu. First, there’s Jeanette’s Mediterranean Chicken salad with chopped kale, red cabbage, red peppers, homemade Mediterranean Chicken Patties and more. Next, there’s the new Asian Salad + Seared Ahi with mixed greens, mandarin oranges, scallions and more, tossed with our homemade Ginger dressing and topped with Seared Ahi. Finally, our new Seared Ahi + Arugula is simple and delicious with seared Ahi Tuna on a bed of arugula with lemon and olive oil dressing topped with avocados.
We’ve also have some healthy sandwich choices that offer a healthy balance of carbs and veggies. The Grilled Chicken Pesto is made with caramelized onions, pesto made from scratch, mozzarella, sliced tomato, arugula on a ciabatta roll. The Caprese is another tasty sandwich on a toasted ciabatta roll with grape tomatoes, pesto, fresh mozzarella, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Finally, the new Roasted Cauliflower Pita filled with roasted cauliflower, tomatoes, green onion, and a spicy sauce on Jerusalem pita bread. All are great healthy options that will keep you satisfied and on track with your new year resolution to eat healthy.
Many restaurants serve large portions that can sometimes be enough to feed two people. Don’t feel you have to eat the entire portion all by yourself in one sitting. Either split the order with someone in your party, or plan to take a portion of it home and eat the rest for another meal. Here at STONEFIRE Grill, we’re always happy to bring Takeout boxes for your leftovers.
In addition to helping you eat healthy, we’ve also made it more convenient with our STONEFIRE Grill app. Download the app on your iPhone, iPad or Android and start enjoying your favorites.
