Eating clean is all good in the hood until….YOU LEAVE HOME! You have mastered shopping the perimeter of the grocery store, you follow all the right recipes in your own kitchen, and then you *GULP* venture out to a restaurant or a party. It’s virtually impossible to stay true to your new healthy ways outside of your own HABITAT, right?!?! NO way my friends. Here are 5 tips on how to dine out grain, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free!
1. MAKE A PLAN
As with anything, once you switch gears to a healthier lifestyle, you have to make a bit of a plan. Think ahead – where are you going, what will be served, what are your options, and so on. If you go into it blindly, you still have a chance of success, but ultimately, temptations and pressure may push you over. So instead, assess the situation and know what you are getting into – this way you will be prepared and won’t have to suffer from unnecessary mix-ups.
