Eating out when you have food allergies doesn’t have to be stressful. Try these five tips to savor your meal.
When you start to change your eating choices and habits, eating out can be a point of confusion for many. We see this all the time with patients at the office—they want to stick to their food plan because they’re feeling great, but they also want to be able to enjoy eating out with others and not feel like they are sabotaging their hard efforts. While it is helpful to pick a restaurant you know serves high-quality food, it’s not always possible to steer the ship.

For many of the patients that I see, getting healthy feels like a chore or drudgery. They may need to change their diet because their blood pressure is too high or they are overweight, but they are dreading making changes.
One of the things I hear all the time is “I could eat healthier, but __________.” Fill in the blank with an upcoming wedding, travel plans, work event, or a number of other excuses for why healthy eating just won’t work out right now.
