Din­ing out

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

From café break­fasts and pub meals, to the movie the­atre, food court or can­teen at the lo­cal sport­ing ground, mak­ing healthy food choices dur­ing your week­end ad­ven­tures can be tricky — and eat­ing out reg­u­larly can also be­come ex­pen­sive!

Serv­ing sizes when din­ing out are usu­ally much larger than at home. A re­cent study of 364 US restau­rants found 92 per cent of them serve main meals which ex­ceed peo­ple’s daily kilo­joule in­take in a sin­gle serve (yep, that’s with­out order­ing a glass of wine, en­trée or dessert!)

Eat­ing out can also mean eat­ing less fruit and veg­eta­bles than you would nor­mally eat dur­ing the week if cook­ing at home, and thanks to a lack of fi­bre, con­sti­pa­tion can be­come an is­sue.
