Dining Well

Here are some tips for a dining experience that is both tasty and good for you.
Be picky when you order:

  • Ask for all butter, gravy or sauces to be left off a dish or served on the side
  • Serve salad dressing on the side
  • Use less cooking oil when cooking

Select foods that are:

  • Steamed
  • Garden fresh
  • Broiled
  • Baked
  • Roasted
  • Poached
  • Lightly sauteed or stir-fried

Avoid foods that are:

  • Fried, deep fried, southern fried
  • Buttery, buttered, creamed, au gratin

Plan what you will eat before you arrive:

  • Most chain restaurants post their menus on their websites
