Although snacking on wraps and eating out of Ziploc baggies and Tupperware works great, once in a while you will undoubtedly want to have someone else prepare the food for you. No worries. Just pick a few food places that have a flexible menu, and using the tips we discussed earlier in the week, build a great tasting meal. Most restaurants will have one or two meals on the menu that will meet your needs, and those that don't are generally happy to accommodate your nutritional requests. Simply order a lean protein source (such as chicken breast, fish or shellfish, lean steak (flank, filet, or sirloin are best choices), or tofu), ask them to fill the plate with veggies, ask for olive oil, and if you've worked out earlier that day, you can add some carbs too (1/2 baked or sweet potato, 1/2 cup brown or wild rice, etc.).
Contact me for local restaurants to go to and how to make the best choices from the menu. Learning a few tricks of the trade will make going out to eat, well, a walk in the park!
