Trade Burgers, Wings, Pizza

and Tacos for Healthier



Eating out is convenient and easy for many people, especially if you

have a hectic schedule and not enough time to cook. Unfortunately,

eating out means not knowing what is actually going your food. This

can lead to an overabundance of calories, fat, additives and more.

Sometimes it\'s hard to decipher what\'s good for you and what isn\'t on

a restaurant menu. Looks can definitely be deceiving in many cases

when reading a menu. In addition, you never know what you are

getting in terms of food quality. It\'s important to fuel your body properly

so sticking to quality protein, produce, grains and dairy is important.

Luckily, many restaurants are offering a healthy menu or healthier

versions of old favorites that contain fewer calories, less sodium and

fewer fat grams. Here are some healthy options for those less healthy

but tasty dishes out there.


1. Buffalo Chicken Wings - Wings covered in blue cheese dressing is

pretty yum, but it doesn\'t do anything for the figure! If you love chicken

wings, try baked wings and omit the skin and the hot sauce. Substitute

light ranch or blue cheese for the real thing and stick to about 2

Tablespoons total. Save about 50 calories per wing!

2. Tacos - A staple for Mexican cravings, tacos seem to make their way

into most people\'s food repertoires at least once a week. Skip the

cheese, greasy tacos found at your local taco joint. Their food is not

only healthier but they pride themselves on serving protein that has

been humanely raised and free of antibiotics and hormones as well as

produce that is locally grown and free of pesticides. Tacos come in

hard corn and soft flour and you can pile them high with fresh salsa,

corn and guacamole.


3. The Burger - The all American burger is one of those menu items that

can pack a ton of calories but boy do they taste good! It\'s time to

substitute the beef burger for a ground turkey or ground chicken

burger. Many restaurants are now adding in healthier options to the

burger complete with a whole wheat or whole grain bun. Top it with

your favorites such as cheese, pickles, onions and more! Save fat and

calories by switching to a leaner meat other than beef.


4. Pizza - This one is tough to tackle. Pizza aficionados are pretty serious

about their pizza and the thought of downgrading to a healthier

version is almost painful. Sometimes these smaller versions of the

real thing may not be enough depending on how active you are. Add

veggies, a little more cheese and even some fresh pepperoni to make

your pizza a bit heartier. If you\'re heading out and you have to go to a

pizzeria for your pizza fix, try adding tons of veggies to your order and

stick to chicken, turkey or ham on the pizza instead of sausage. Limit

your portion size and add a side salad to fill you up. Pita pizzas are

also making some headway in the restaurant scene. Scan your menu

for a healthy whole wheat pita used as the crust. Pita pizzas often

offer the perfect portion of the real thing that will satiate any appetite.
