When you have little time to prepare lunches and snacks at home, you may reach for foods at your workplace cafeteria or restaurant. Use the tips below to help you make healthy choices!
Build a delicious salad by choosing a mix of these ingredients:
Add small amounts of low fat salad dressing or vinaigrette.
Build a healthy sandwich with whole grain breads, protein-rich fillings and lots of veggie toppings.
Choose these options more often:
Use small amounts of lower fat mayonnaise, condiments, dressings and sauces on your sandwich.
Cafeteria portion sizes can be large. Instead of eating the whole portion, pack up part of your meal for tomorrow’s lunch.
Tips: Condiments, spreads, and sauces can be high in fat and/or sodium. Always ask for them on the side so you can add just enough to enjoy the taste. Look for dishes that are baked, broiled, grilled, roasted or steamed instead of fried.
Enjoy a piece of fresh fruit and yogurt for dessert. Or, order a small size dessert and share it with a friend. Save cakes and pastries for special events.
Satisfy your thirst most often with water. Bring a reusable water bottle to work so you can drink all day. Try these other healthy options too.
