Tadda's Fit Tip Tuesday. Is this salad healthy? Look close. Nice piece of salmon, black beans, corn, feta cheese and mango salsa?
It would be healthy if you didn't eat the entire salad. Portion control is what kills a lot of people even when they are eating something healthy.
When dining out many restaurants want you to get a bang for your buck so they bring you an enormous amount of food that if you're not paying attention you will consume in one sitting. Portion size is just as important as how many calories, sodium, etc.
My tips for eating out especially a salad is to either: - Save money and split the meal with someone. - Ask for a to go box before you start to eat. Split the food in half.
-Depending on what the food is you are taking home, you should not eat the rest for dinner the same day. -If you're eating a salad from the Olive Garden ask for the darker lettuce. The lighter lettuce has more water and less nutrients. -Lastly ask for your salad dressing on the side. Can I Get it? #nomess #portioncontrol #taddasfitness
