How often do you dine out? Three times? Every night? No matter how often you dine out, you can be smart about it every time. Healthy Dining Finder takes the guess work out of what you’re eating!
By utilizing the Healthy Dining Finder, one can increase awareness of the composition of meals. Healthy Dining Finder. No matter what nutrient you’re trying to limit (i.e. fat, sodium) or just looking to eat more healthy, you’ve come to the right place!
The best part? This website’s regulated by Registered Dietitians (RD), who are premier expects in all things nutrition and healthy eating. The options chosen by RDs are great options as they’ve met the gold standard in regards to high nutrient ingredients.
The criteria RDs use in choosing healthy menu options include:
Entrees must include at least 2 or more of the following ingredients: unsaturated fats, whole grains,lean protein and/or fruits or vegetables. In addition, chosen meals must be 750 calories or less, contain 25 grams of fat or less and have 8 grams of saturated fat or less.
For appetizers and/or side dishes, dishes must be 250 calories or less, 8 g of fat or less and have 3 grams of saturated fat or less.
This website was shared with me by one of the RDs I’m currently working with at MacNeal Hospital, Berwyn, IL. I’m glad to know there’s RDs giving their stamp of dining out approval. Sign up for the current newsletter, which includes special offers, current news, recipes and nutrition facts.
So, now that you’ve checked out the list of healthy options, what’re you choosing?
