I feel the key to eating out has a lot to do with intentionally choosing the healthier options on the menu and making adjustments such as replacing french fries with steamed veggies or side salads. Unfortunately, a lot of the time this means eating the same or very similiar entrees every time I eat out, such as chicken or fish. This is fine with me, because I like eating those things, but it does narrow down the options. I think a great alternative is sushi! Sometimes, I use these times as an opportunity to splurge a little bit and maybe get a burger. I love burgers and don't make them at home, so it works out for me. I'll still get a side other than french fries, though. I also try to refrain from eating pre-meal bread and apps, because that's a lot of unnecessary calories.
