5 TAKEAWAY tip
Put noodles, stir-fries or curries onto a plate, rather than eating them straight from the container. Takeaway portions tend to be generous!
Add colour by requesting extra vegies or salad. Beige burgers, pizzas or pasta salads will be low in satisfying fibre and high in carbs and fat.
Focus on grilled or lean cuts of meat, and try to avoid crumbed, deep-fried, or processed cuts like bacon and salami.
Go easy on sauces and condiments, especially creamy mayonnaise, aioli or Caesar dressing, and salty soy or teriyaki sauce.
Choose water over sugary soft drink or milkshakes. It’s an easy way to save kilojoules (and money) while keeping hydrated.
