The cafeterias of today are somewhat different than the cafeterias of yesterday. Hospitals, coporate buildings, colleges and high school no longer serve only greasy pizza and French fries for lunch. Sure, they still have many bad food options, but most of these dining places have begun to incorporate healthier options. Your first stop should always be the salad bar. It’s the safest bet, and the place with the least calories. Fill your dish up with fruits and vegetables. Pick a light vinaigrette instead of heavier dressing. Skip the cheese and other dairy options, instead grab some broccoli for your calcium intake. Better yet, take a sack lunch.
Get rid of your fryer. Buy a grill. Fill your fridge with fruits and vegetables. Salads are fast. Throw together some lettuce, either fruit chuncks or vegetable chuncks, drissle on a little dressing and it’s ready to go. Make healthy foods ahead of time and freeze leftovers. Grab them out to thaw the night before, or day of, and they’ll be thawed and ready to heat up for lunch or dinner.
Think Before You Eat
Take some time to think about what you’re eating. Where did it come from? How healthy is it? Eat it slow and enjoy the texture and flavor. Embrace slow food and avoid fast food.
