Make a pick & mix menu of standby snacks and always choose something to have in your bag when you're out. Research online menus for restaurants and coffee shops for nutritional information. Read labels on take away salads or sandwiches. Build a list of safe choices so that you can stay in control.

More Information:

Taking home-prepared food is not always possible, but dangers lurk in take away salads and sandwiches that aren't always as obvious as those in burgers and fries.

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENT. IT IS SURPRISING WHAT IS HIDDEN IN YOUR LUNCH OR DINNER WHEN EATING OUT. YOU MIGHT THINK YOUR EATING A HEALTHY MEAL BUT WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW IS HOW YOUR MEAL IS PREPARED. - by KEEPONMOVIN2
  • I agree with all of your practices. Recently I decided to become a vegan vegetarian and it is even more difficult to find restaurants that serve vegan meals and if they do, the choices are very limited. Some do serve vegetarian meals but, a very, very few offer anything vegan so, it is more important for me to pack my own meals. I am compiling a list of meal choices available at various restaurants I can enjoy with I take my family out. - by PTCOACHRODGER
