Dining Out; Healthier Selections

Smoked Salmon Sandwich - Colombiano Coffee House 

After last month's medical scare, I am gradually including healthier options into my total lifestyle. A huge part of my lifestyle is dining out. I love exploring new restaurants throughout the city. Dining out gives me an opportunity to connect with my friends or reconnect with Ash after a long day. As a southern girl with an affinity for fried foods, it is the first thing that I slashed from my diet. I won't proclaim that I won't ever eat a fried item again, but I won't eat them daily. (insert will power here)

Because my cholesterol is a bit higher than desirable, I have to cut back on my beloved cheese and eggs. As a person who needs to maintain a lower carb lifestyle, I am on hunt of what I can do to replace eggs as a daily breakfast. Egg whites aren't an option. 

Incorporating more greens and salads is also on the agenda. Above is a mixed salad with turkey and grilled chicken. 

Ok, Ceaser Salads are my absolute favorites. I know I have to cut back on the cheese and I will, so Ceaser Salad will be sporadic salad treat.

I will continue with lower carbs and lower fat with most importantly no daily fried meals.

Do you make healthy choices when dining out?

Everything looks so good, I'm on an anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory diet, so there are quite a few things I can't diet at the moment. :-(

That salmon sandwich looks sooo good! I'm okay admitting that I don't always make the best decisions when eating out. Today I chose a salad while out to lunch and I was super proud of myself, LOL!!!

That salad looks so good. I love salad and I have also incorporated a non meat day too in my week.
