If you are going to be eating out or going to a party, try eating
a serving of vegetables before you go if you can. Many restaurants serve large portions of the entrees but don't always include vegetables other than potatoes or a side salad. Parties and cookouts may not have a lot of healthy food available. By eating a veggie serving before going, you won't be so hungry when you arrive and can avoid bread baskets & less healthy options, and get a daily serving of veggies. You can take part of your entree home for lunch the next day if you want.
