We all enjoy a night out to good restaurant. A good tip for enjoying your meal is to choose well for the family!
For example, when you go to a pizzeria, choose pizza Margarita. It is usually made with fresh tomato, little cheese and fresh basil. Do not choose pizza with extra cheese, pepperoni, or extra of anything.
If you go to a hamburger joint, order regular burger on whole wheat buns with tomato and small fries. There is no need to add bacon, extra cheese, and fried onion rings.
Italian restaurants are always a good choice. A pasta dish with tomato sauce will be a good choice. Add a salad bowl with olive oil and vinegar dressing for an excellent dinner. By the way, there is no need for soda, you know we humans survived centuries just enjoying a good glass of water!
Make sure you go to restaurants that offer healthy choices. Make this the norm so kids grow up learning good food choices and habits from you and they will not feel deprived.
If they order dessert, share it so it is no big deal. After all, we go out to have a good time as a family, not to fight battles.
