My last two post were a little touchy/ heavy so I’m trying to lighten it up a little (also thanks for the Support i really appreciate it)
I am a big foodie at heart trust me, I love food and I love exploring and trying new things, I recently started seeing a nutritionist and she’s helped me so much with my eating and picking healthy food choices, yes it’s ok to have cheat days sometimes (it’s normal, eat in moderation) after having my daughter I gained a lot of weight and trust me I was far from happy so i knew I had to get healthy not only for myself but for my daughter.
A list of my favorite restaurants/ whats good to eat on the menu when trying to be healthy:
Red lobster- this has and always will be my favorite place to eat, seafood is really good for you and plus it’s light so you don’t feel like you over ate and have any guilt over what was eaten, so usually when I go to red lobster I get the fresh pick of the day witch consist of the fish of that day that the chef has made, I get salmon with mix veggies and a baked potato it’s for one really healthy for you and again really light (yes eating a baked potato is fine, it’s actually on the meal plan my nutritionist gave me) just don’t eat it everyday, always in moderation.
O’Charleys- so my job always gets o’charleys catered for lunch and my co workers and I are all dieting so we always get the chicken ceaser salad with no croutons it’s so good and it’s light and healthy grilled chicken is always, always a good choice as well and of course you can’t go wrong with lettuce and no I’m not a rabbit 😏 salads are always a good choice.
Wendy’s- so I know what everyone is thinking how in the hell can Wendy’s be healthy but let me tell you it’s all how you pick so whenever I go to Wendy’s normally on my lunch break I always get the grilled chicken wrap it’s light, it’s healthy and it’s delicious and not to mention the price isn’t bad either(fast food is not always bad as long as you make healthy food choices)
Arby’s- so again another fast food place I know I know guys but whenever I go to Arby’s on my lunch break I always get a JR roast beef, it’s extremely light and healthy it’s one of the many things I love about Arby’s minus their curly fries. witch I no longer eat, gotta give up the good things sometimes.
Chick fil A – yes you can never go wrong with chick fil A never ever nope so my favorite thing on the menu is the grilled chicken nuggets now most people think I’m crazy when I even mention the grilled nuggets they say “eeew you actually eat that” yes I do and I love them it’s light and healthy and I even have my daughter hooked on them also not to mention the salad options they have, you can’t go wrong here either.
So these are the main places I eat at yes it’s all healthy options everything I’ve listed my nutritionist has said it’s ok and agrees with the choice ( trust me if she didn’t, I would not be eating any of it) I mostly cook at home and eat from home so this list is only when I’m not at home or when I’m on break(I do not eat out everyday) nor do I eat anything fried everything has to be grilled or baked in my house.
The main thing here is to love yourself and to take care of your body and mind always, you only have one body treat it right and again no one is perfect we’re all a work in progress but I wanted to share some tips and give some healthy food options, Anyone out their trying to lose weight remain humble and you can do this don’t give up, I’m here with you! Also I’ll be sharing more about my weight loss journey in more upcoming blogs so look out for it.
