6 Tips To Eat Healthy Outside The Home

With today's hectic lifestyles, most of us end up eating out at least once a week. That could mean grabbing a sandwich from the supermarket for lunch, ordering take-out for dinner, or splurging on a special meal at a favourite restaurant.

Choosing food is an action guided in many cases by taste and pleasure, but recent studies indicate that the more information you have about the quality of food, its nutrients and benefits for your health, the more you will be able to make intelligent decisions regarding to what you eat. 

“Eating out doesn’t have to mean eating poorly,” keeping the following tips in mind when eating at a restaurant or fast-food place:

1. Avoid Sauces

Most restaurants accompany their dishes with sauces and creams to suit the consumer, but these usually contain fat, processed products and excess salt. Instead, ask for balsamic vinegar and olive oil to accompany your food in a healthier way.

2. Soda, Bye

The same happens when you accompany your meals with sodas, soft drinks and carbonated drinks that are usually bottled sugar and chemicals. Accompany your meals with water, lemonades or natural juices without sugar. An elegant option is sparkling water and a little lemon.

Drink fat-free or low-fat milk, water or coffee instead of sugary drinks like soda.

3. Limit Alcohol

Eating out opens the door to excess. You may want to accompany lunch with a drink or celebrate a special occasion with alcoholic beverages, but remember:

  • It is not necessary to drink to enjoy and
  • Alcohol can be an ally of cancer.

4. Watch Your Portions

If you are paying for food away from home, you usually expect abundant portions that justify the expense, however, you should pay attention not to overdo the portions and make sure that the dish is balanced, that is, it has protein, carbohydrates and a generous portion of vegetables. 

5. Take Your Time To Choose

Studying the menu when you go to a restaurant is a good strategy to avoid ordering on impulse. If you take your time to know the ingredients and how the dishes are made, you can choose more nutritious foods and healthier cooking methods such as steaming or grilling.

6. Dessert? Yes, To Share

Sugar, especially refined sugar, is a silent enemy to your health. If you want to pamper yourself with a dessert, you can ask for more natural ones like salads or fruit sorbets, but if you want to try a specialty of the house, don't limit yourself, just do it with moderation: ask for a special dessert to share and treat yourself.

Educating yourself is key to not overdoing it on special occasions. It is not about depriving yourself of the pleasure of a good meal but about choosing better foods and understanding that healthy choices can also be delicious.

05-June-2020 - Friday Morning Long Drive After Long Time

मैं पेशेवर काम कर रहा हूं, मेरा जीवन बहुत व्यस्त है। अगर आप मेरी रोजाना की दिनचर्या के बारे में जानना चाहते हैं, तो मेरे ब्लॉग को रोजाना पढ़ें।
आज शुक्रवार सुबह, मैं लगभग 5:30 बजे उठा, फिर बालकनी में गया और देखा कि मौसम बहुत अच्छा है। लॉन्ग ड्राइव के लिए 3 महीने के लॉकडाउन के बाद अचानक प्लान किया। फिर मैंने अपनी कार की चाबी ली और सुबह 6 बजे के करीब नीचे चला गया। मैंने अपनी कार शुरू की और लगभग 100 किमी के लॉग ड्राइव के लिए चला गया। मैंने इस 3 महीने में बहुत सारे बदलाव देखे, पर्यावरण बहुत साफ है, सड़क खाली थी इसलिए मैंने अपनी ड्राइविंग का आनंद लिया। मैंने 25 किमी की ड्राइविंग के बाद एक जगह पर कार रोकी, फिर खुले वातावरण में 1 किमी दौड़ लगाई। बहुत समय बाद मैंने खुली जगह पर दौड़ लगाई। जाते समय सड़क खाली थी, लेकिन घर लौटते समय सड़क पर कुछ लोगों और वाहनों को देखा। आउटिंग के तीन घंटे बाद आखिरकार 9 बजे के आसपास घर पहुंचा। फिर स्नान किया कुछ ब्रेड स्लाइस के साथ एक कप चाय ली और मेरी सुबह की गतिविधि समाप्त की।
