Healthy Vegan Eating Out Tips.
These 3 key points apply to any meal you eat out:
1. Plan what and where. Don’t end up at a steak or burger joint and expect you’ll be ok with a boring, unsatisfying green salad while everyone else chows down hearty burgers and crispy fries.
2. Be fine with moving if it’s not what you expected. What? You’re not down with letting the people you choose to spend time with see how you prioritise giving your body the fuel that keeps it healthy?
You teach your loved ones how to treat you. It’s 100% your choice what standards you set and keep for your body and the fuel you give it… they will follow your lead.
3. Ask for adjustments to the menu. Be polite, be appreciative, and be fine with your fussiness!
Ordinary or ‘normal’ is now unhealthy, unfit and over-weight. If you want extraordinary or simply just healthy vegan, it’ll take extra-ordinary behaviour. I like to think the more I (and you) ask, the sooner our preferences will be available as a standard (fuss-free!) order.
* Bang-4-Your-Buck-Bonus-Point! I wouldn’t do this at a top notch restaurant however I absolutely do if I’m eating at a cafe, food court or take away. Order your meal minus the unnecessary refined carbs… so that may be the veggie burger without bun / fries or the salad combo that isn’t all cost-effective-carbie-filler. For example I love broccoli or kale or cauli based salads however they’re never substantial enough. This is the time to PIMP YOUR SERVE with a side of nuts. I love cashews and Yes, I have been known to buy 50 grams separately to add to a bought salad. Here are 3 more ways to pimp your serve:
👍 Add Seeds to a light weight salad, like Hemp or Pumpkin which are super easy to carry with you.
👍 Follow that salad with vegan protein powder mixed with water.
👍 Or even grab a jar of tahini / nut butter from that nearby supermarket (or carry a portion with you) when you’re faced with a light weight salad option. #plantstrong #eatbetternotless @nalinisayurvedickitchen
